Frozen city : UCM reinforcements

I bought more UCM miniatures to create a 1500pts army of what I think would make a coherent and good looking army. There are still some models I don't have that I will eventually buy later.

I tried to continue with my digital camo color scheme but after a few hours of work cutting the little squares of masking tape, placing them, removing them after the paint has dried, 50% of the models had problems with the tape removing the paint and the base coat... It was the tipping point. It is already a very time consuming technique, and if can only succeed on half of the models, it is too hard for me at this point. So I decided to try another color scheme. Keeping the light blue grey colour and choosing a darker colour, I am currently painting the UCM this way. I think it looks great. Inspiration found on this post on the DZC forum :

Here are some pictures of the models, they still need a little work until the varnish phase. Overall very happy with the result.

For reference the "frozen city light blue grey" is a mix of 4 drops of vallejo air light blue grey n°46 and 1 drop of vallejo air light sea blue n°89. The dark grey is n°54 dark blue grey from vallejo air model range. Wash from vallejo black and light grey. Metallics are done with steel from vallejo air model n°65. The tires are adeptus grey from citadel.
