    Jul 17, 2014, 11:20 PM - Pre-Pro Color Arrangement #1

    prepro2-jpgoriginaleyes2kj-jpgprepropic1-jpg

    These are my favorite variants of the pre pro's. Does anyone have any suggestion for the helmet color on any of these? I know the middle picture is not actually gray, I'm just curious how I can use green and fade the paint to look worn out like it does there. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    The top 2 images is the Pp eyes / then the pp ears helmet which is actually the same main colours as Esb helmet, the PP2 is made with the same colours of the Rotj helmet mabey a few difrence's but generally the same, there are plenty of threads with the Esb colours, and Rotj and Pp2 in them just have a search around

    I found this^
    It seems like the colors are a blue/grey base for the helmet. Problem is they only sell the paint cans in the UK for the specific color someone used. Thoughts?

    The images are deceptive, they look blue grey but it's most likely the base colour is green like the EsB helmet,

    Hmm. I was hoping to do the blue grey look myself. I know in actuality it's impossible to tell. One of the images it's clearly green but it's a completely different helmet. I think this was somehow a stand alone helm they made. To me, it's cool to have something unique like this helm.

    Go for the blue/grey, the pre pro 1 has never been the same color as the ESB. They changed to the green on pre pro 2 ... The pictures of pre pro 1 and pre pro 2 are of the "almost" same age ... there wasn´t much time between them. And now look to the photos. Does anybody want to tell me that surprisingly all pre pro 1 pictures are wrong colord because of the photo´s age? Even the killstripes have been in orange completely. The red of the mandibles is also niot the same to pre pro 2 and it´s successors.

    Summary: Pre Pro 1 was the first color concept after the white supertrooper. pre pro 1 had two version, the eyes version (1) and afterwards the ears version (2). And it never ever has been the same color as the pp2 or ESB ... just compare the greyscale pictures with greyscaled ESB ...

    Many people think it must be green because it must fit into the color scheme ... but why? It was the first color concept and they changed it afterwards ... it´s plain and simple. :-)
