Just sharing some work I finished up the other week.  I am starting on another force now until Wave 2 hits.  But this is where I stopped for my CGB.

Great looking models!! Terrific job!
I'm unfamiliar with the Clans in general, so if I can ask: why is the one mech in black and red? Is it a special character from the source materials?

Here is my explanation of his mech:

Star Captain Kenbarg DelVillar of Clan Ghost Bear, Beta Galaxy, 14th Battle Cluster, 76th Supernova pilots an Executioner A. 

His Executioner emulates ‘The Maulers’ icon; the body is a deep gray, nearly black.  The lower arms are crimson, bloodied.  A blue star is prominently placed on his right shoulder. 

DelVillar’s decision to break from traditional Beta Galaxy colour schemes is a testament to his desire to provide inspiration in his own forces as well as despair in enemy opposition.

Often he rides to battle accompanied by a point of elementals who defend him against conventional infantry forces and finish off downed mercenary BattleMechs.

The retaking of Terra enlightened him to the Inner Sphere and their use of mercenaries to hold their worlds.  Dishonourable men and women; hiding amid the settlements and environs to ambush and employ tactics of devious nature.  No longer would the 14th Battle Cluster extend batchalls or announce their forces to planets assigned to them.  They deserve nothing less than the full might of Clan Ghost Bear unleashed; merciless and relentless.

That's amazing, I don't think I'd ever have the patience/skill to mod the elementals like that and I really like that whole lore around having a uniquely painted mech.

It’s a Model Color paint.  Dark Blue, 70.930.  That’s the base, then add a little white and go with a medium/heavy dry brush.  Then more white for an even lighter dry brush.
