Zeruel13 #thedailypaint

Post by Zeruel13 » Fri Jun 15, 2012 1:33 am

So it's about time I cracked down and started painting some of my stuff and I figure starting one of these daily paint threads might keep me motivated.

To kick things off my Cougar Prime from Clan Jade Falcon's Delta Galaxy for Battletech that I've been working on for the past two days. I'm hoping to have it mostly finished some point tonight though I'm waiting for the unit marking transfers to arrive in the mail to truly finish it off.

Well if by variety you mean non GW/PP stuff then you're going to love me. In the next few months I'm going to be working primarily on Battletech and Firestorm Armada models though there will probably also be a little Fantasy Dark Elves in that mix as well.

I played with the pic a bit to give a better look at the mech. I didn't think enough of the small detail was coming through in the last pic.

So I put the Cougar on hold for a day or two as a few of my new RSN Ships arrived today and I came up with a paint scheme for them I've been itching to try since I ordered them. Here's the WIP. I'm on my days on Work right now so my painting time is limited but once Wednesday rolls around and I get some days off expect me to pick up the pace a little and have a few more minis to show.

how do you manage to do the windows like that on such a small scale?

With a 10/0 brush and a very steady hand. I once did a full iris and pupil on the eye of a Fantasy scale model just to see if I could.

I like it! Simple and clean.
The blue seems over washed compared to the gray areas. Were you going for a dirty look on the blue there?
