    ok, wife and I are getting two new halo suits, had them before, sold them. I had a red one, and my wife went with a aqua green. She's going for purple this time. Im thinking metalic gunmetal grey with black highlights, or vice versa, black with gunmetal grey highlights. Also been thinking going with duplicolor or krylon color changing paint like I did my wifes predator in. What do you guys think?? Cool or no? LIke a blue/purple or red/blue?


    Krylon has either
    Magenta/Gold
    Silver/Green
    Blue/Purple

    or duplicolor has
    purple/green
    silver/green
    red/blue
    gold/magenta

    EXACTLY what I was going to suggest. :lol


    I like the silver/green but I think it'd be neat to see some Halo armor pained up like the camo trooper in EIII.

    Do you have any pics of camo trooper? One thing thats nice with either the krylon or duplicolor it does act as a camoflage, because the color of the armor would change depending on light and shade, to go from one color to another. Maybe a black and dark grey camoflage halo armor would look good?

    Is it H1 armor again, or a certain H2 suit?

    If you are doin h2, I'd say rock a color available on the game. I like the Steel/Gunmetal color, thats what my Live characters color is.

    its H2> LOL yea, Hey I had a H2 armor waaay before ya Derek, :p just going for a different look now, something darker then my red armor I had before.. Still havent decided, I like the black/grey or vice versa, or use that color changing paint where depending on light and shadow the paint will change. :)

    yea its about 12 bucks or so for a three can piece, primer, color changer, and gloss coat. I figure two sets would be enough. Thats what Im kind of leaning to, I can always change it later. Also Krylon has some type of funky color changing enhancer you can use on regular paint, im wondering what it would do to sprayin on color changing paint? :)

    I guess the only way to find out is to do a test with the Krylon

    Which company makes the color change paint

    Looking forward to seeing what colors you use

    both dupli and krylon have color changing paint, I was thinking of going with the red/blue or silver/green or blue/purple. Havent narrowed down yet, its only paint, it can always be changed. :)
