ComStar Level II
« on: 16 August 2022, 09:21:15 »
finished these a while ago, first of the new plastics i painted.

i aimed for minimal amount of time to get these up to a good tabletop standard. took me something like two hours per mini.
and  because i am quite certain a certain white-bearded guy will ask  ;D
here is how they were done:

prime white
wash with thinned down black wash (i don't remember if it was Army Painter Strong Tone or Secret Weapon Soft Body Black)
several rounds of not-so-dry-brushing with Vallejo Model Color Off White
final dry-brush und a bit of edge-highlighting with VMC White
metallics used: Vallejo Model Air Bright Brass, Gunmetal and Silver
basegrit painted with VMC Iraqui Sand, washed with VMC Cavalry Brown and drybrushed with Iraqui Sand and Off White
base edge: VMC Cavalry Brown

So much better than the pair of mechs I just did last weekend, I love the black wash effect, I used a light grey & it didn't show up nearly as well as I was hoping.

Wow!  Those look great!,  Good job on the white, I really like how clean it looks while still having the defined recesses.
