Camo/Paint ideas for new A-5

Hey guys, been a while since ive of been on. I ordered an A-5 for my 30-06 and looking for some ideas on camo/paint for it? Patterns and color ideas more than welcome. It's coming in with just a basic tan finish. I was thinking about maybe even just doing some black webbing and doing the action, bolt handle and barrel in a flat dark earth. What you guys think? I'm open to anything really. I've changed my mind at least a half dozen times in the past day or two.. Just so excited! Thanks a bunch for any input!

Water transfer is my favorite. I did my Manners MCS-T in standard multicam and it turned out great. The metal is cerakoted graphite black.

Skyking that is a great looking rifle. I never looked into water transfer before, I bet the multicam looks good. I was going to do my rifle and scope in camo but was told it would void warranty of the scope.

Manilla type ropes as a templat, with colors layered looks like weeds and grass

I wish, it was a guy that I know here locally, he gets bored and starts doing things just to see how it turns out, just happened to paint a stock.
What he did was start out with a base color, then wrap a layer of rope with gaps in it, painted it what ever color, wrapped a 2nd layer of rope and painted it it another color.
