    Good to see you back at it. That looks a mean little beastie!

    Cheers. 

     

    A quick bit of  painting again this morning to get me back into the swing of things.

    And just found out my flying VW I did back in the beginning of last year has won me a clue prize for the group build we do every at Keighley plastic model club. 

     

    My prize.

    Its is an incredibly nice looking kit so might actually build it in to a small dio with a half track and a few crew.

    I see a lot of potential in what you can do with these guys. I think my favourite of yours were the Ma.K walkers but also enjoy your Gunpla posts too RPC.

     

    At least one of the larger units here looks directly inspired by a Warhammer space marine Dreadnought - a lot of other shapes in there look derivative of their Tau race stylings/devices too.

     

    I like the inclusion of the Space Marine components in your last post, but can't tell if parts are from Reavers, Intercessors or regular Primaris. There's so many more interesting models than when I first started collecting them in lead, covered in flash and prone to bending, resistant to most glues!

    Cheers, Yeh I know what mean. Looks this these might be made up from a number of existing kits all mashed together and I'm at it again with a few Primaris Marines. Currently chopping and reshaping the leg of another at the moment.

  3. So a bit more work done on this now, the white base has just had the decals put and need a top coat, I can then make a start on building the base with the lights in. I wanted to go for a modulating colour with the white so had weathered, added some shading and a few scratches etc to metallics on the base in an attempt to give it a bit more of a used look. I would like to build this in to a 1/35 diorama with crew working on the Gundam but we will have to see how it goes.

    Wow that's a lovely finish, could be real metal.

    Do the wax paints dry robust? It looks like you were able to mask over them.

    Cheers Will. It's not great to be honest but it's so much easier to use than the likes of Alclad. It rubs of more than chips so as long as you don't touch it it's fine, goes off properly after about 4 or 5 days but I still give a gloss top before doing anything with it. Thinned down with white sprites, not sure if that slows the drying time. 

     

    Just good parts separation not masking.... Yet.
