Hi people, I'm intending on painting some of these and am woderi g what the current "scheme" is? It used to just be gray with the red helmet stripe bit u see forge world have changed it a bit..
Can anyone tell me what the new scheme is? I've seen a few pics from the ia10 book and can't work out if it's a silver or dark grey with black shoulder pads..... Any helps greatly appreciated
thanks!

Colours (http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/New_Stuff/IMPERIAL_ARMOUR_VOLUME_TEN_THE_BADAB_WAR_PART_TWO. html) and Painted Model (http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/New_Stuff/TYBEROS-THE-RED-WAKE.html).
Now you know as much as me :)

You have probably seen both of these, but maybe the way Tyberos is painted will help you. Best course of action is probably to either buy the books (I know they are costly), or give FW a call and politely ask for tips on the colours they used on Tybey. :)

Thanks for that guys, i think i know what im up to now.
Are there any pictures of vehicles painted in carcharodon colours in IA 10? or is it just infantry?

Actually, the helmet stripe was a rank indicator, back in the day. Plenty of Chapters displayed one, not just the Space Sharks.
