Help me decide how to paint a 98c

So, I have about 4 98cs on the way, I'm going to be fixing them up and reselling them locally but I decided to polish and paint this batch so. I've done a few before. Did a flacktran (spelling is wrong I'm sure) imitation splatter in the past (see photo)

Probably aiming for 3 or 4 colors

Primer, base coat, then.....?

Right now my only idea is to lay a bunch of o rings on the body and paint over that but I'm not super committed to it by any meansIMG_20181215_101744124.jpg

Flecktarn looks dope as hell.
Maybe a variety of leaves? Ferns have always been a really cool camo pattern to me. Cedar is also pretty cool. As for colouring, I like to go with the lightest colours first, working my way to dark. I usually do an OD base, with painting black over the OD to create the illusion of there being green leaves, and the black being shadows in the brush.

O I like that idea, I have a bunch of different trees around my house as well

What colors do you think? I don't want to do standard "camo" colors but I'm also not looking for road construction neon.

That flecktarn was done in all gloss colors

My favourite colour combination is a Black-Grey-Orange... with whatever pattern you like, but that’s just me.

An actual tiger themed one might be cool. Maybe maroon too?

I was also thinking orange.
Or
Maybe try something like barricade tape, and weather it a bit.

Anything that comes out of a spray can that I can get at my local hardware store

And a clear coat to finish it off

I have some chicken wire laying around, that could be a cool pattern
