12th FedCom RCT and Pesht Regulars.
« on: 12 November 2020, 16:47:40 »
Some of these are WIP's but my friends' been working on them for a good long time, the Thunderbolt is nearly finished and then its just the Awesome and Catapult to do which will be done in white.







And there's an Imgur gallery here with more pics on them - https://imgur.com/a/5sjX9TG

These are all done save the Thud, and the unbased ones have been varnished and will be done soon.

I'd love to hear peoples thoughts so I can pass 'em onto him :)

Nope, he does not have an airbrush, the highlights and layering are all done by hand.

Yeah he's been doing painting for many years, although the Wolverine in the imgur gallery was the first model he'd picked up he thinks in about 10 years. He use to paint a lot and did Golden Demon stuff.

To quote my friend when I asked if he uses glazes and the like


id prolly know what i was doing more if id actually had some kind of artsy fartsy edumacation, but ima just wingin it
seat of me pantsuuuuuuuuuuu
glazing is only if the colour hue wants to be altered
like with the gold bits to make em more yellowish, i did it with the white blokes to make the shading more bluish too
if ya hit the colour right with the layers though ya dont always need it..
i dont think i did any on him apart from the gold wobblers.
dont really know what im doin with it to be honest 😕
i dont really know what im doing at all :smile:
stab brush at model, hope for good result

Jeebus - those are soo good.

Too good for me in fact. If I owned them there would be no way in H-E-[Double-Hockey-Sticks] I would let anyone touch them on the table, let along 'knock them over' to represent it fell.

Again...WOW!

Those are amazing!

Things that I have learnt through clicking too fast on 'Move Done' on MegaMek: Double-check the CF of the building before jumping onto it, check artillery arrival times before standing in the neighbouring hex, and don't run across your own minefield.

The attention to detail is pretty crazy.  Also, I'm guessing your friend has better eyes than I do.  Wow is all I can muster when I look at the shading and lighting effects.

He's got normal eyesight but he just holds the models VERY close, and he's also got some magnifying glasses thing I got him.

These two are finished up, this was my friends first go at using this textured base paint stuff, he was surprised at how easy it was to use, slather it on, make craters etc, let it dry, drybrush, done.

Wow. I'm not a fan of the cell shaded paint style for miniatures myself, but there is no denying the immense talent it takes to pull off these models!!
I'm having a very bad case of paintbrush envy right now...  :drool:
Terrific work.

After having to deal with various RL issues, my friend is painting again, this is the Catapult of the Pesht Regulars he's working on, the Awesome will have the same scheme. This is done without air brushes or washes, its tons and tons of layer highlighting.

Oh... my... god.
I tend to paint in a similar way, but not that kind of quality, not that multitude of layers, not that kind of perfect blend. What an extreme of a paintjob, even if it is not finished yet.

Sweet Kerensky that's beautiful. I have to ask: Does your friend take commissions? Because I am dreading painting up my "parade white" Com Guards from the Kickstarter.

Sadly he does not, he know's he's too slow and he'd have performance anxiety.

That's a shame. With his skill level, I would give him all the time he needs and pay upfront to help his performance anxiety. Him on a bad day is already leagues beyond what I could with if I spent a week on a single mech.
