After painting a jack for my Retribution and getting started on my Invictors I followed my plan of switching to another model for fun.
I love the look of the Rhulic models and I picked up some of the gunners and blasters recently.
There are two things which inspired my paint scheme for the Rhulic models. First, I really like both khaki and military green schemes on the armor of the jacks. Secondly, why I looked at the Highshields, they remind me of Men-at-Arms with their shields. Then, when I look at the Forgeguard and the jacks, their face plates and helmets remind me of knight helms.
Therefore, I decided to use the two schemes I like, and paint the models with different variations with those to colors. For example, this first jack I painted was split in half vertically. For other models, I might do it quartered, split diagonally or one color alone. This should add some variety while maintaining the scheme.
Here are some shots of the base by itself:
