Ogre Camoflage WIP
First colour laid down, in this case purple for all, which is mostly by happen-chance, because I didn't knowingly set out to have a colour in common to all the forces.
The pink Ogre is being done in a scheme base on the Swedish splinter pattern as applied to the Saab Viggen.
Both the green and yellow schemes are differential dazzle schemes, where the placement of colour is driven by the desire to have the lower parts of the Ogre in lighter tones. Of course the pink scheme will appear similar, because the pink is very bright, but the design is largely driven from copying the Swedish camoflage pattern. A subtle difference that pleases me, and I imagine most other will not notice, or care much about.
On looking at the above picture I think I will add some more purple to the Mark 1 Ogre, which I think needs to be darker on top.
