Starting a new merc unit
« on: 30 September 2019, 22:18:09 »
A test for a new unit of mechs that I will be painting up. Still a WIP. Needs a wash and some weathering to finish it off

Looking good so far. 8) :thumbsup:

What kind of unit are you cooking up?  Is the Ostscout part of a recon lance or something else?

It will be part of a recon lance. Not sure what the details of the unit are but I like the red and black and thought I would go with it

Really like the red accents and the blue cockpit with the black.

Thanks. Needed to do something different than my usual glossy black cockpit

Really looks great with the details.  It will be a sharp looking group! 8) :thumbsup:

Yeah I really like the brass-ish joints, and the silver over the red? *chef kiss*

Thanks. I may be picking up a second AGoAC box and if I do I will be adding a Locust. Commando and Catapult to the lance.

It is metal with a Nuln Oil wash and then a silver highlight. I then add a wash of Agrath Earthsahde. I will be adding another one but watered down so it adds a slight sheen to the metal.
