Yay its the Doppelganger mech!
I gave up trying to say its real name. Every time I do, I sound like Sylvester from Looney Tunes

You know, I really like the method on this guy.  It looks like the same kind of green paint job you would see on a Tank.

How did you do it?  Just brush on green paint and flesh it out with the details we see?  I want to do the same thing when I paint up my Burrock force (with different colors, obviously)

It's one of the simplest paint jobs I do. Air brush of Field Drab a touch of black wash.  Then a dry brush of Field drab to cover any wash boo boos .  Black ink the missile launchers. Then a Fax jeweling for the cockpit & laser.  The biggest problem with painting is the brush. I base coat all most mechs with a airbrush or dry brush then  do finer details with a brush. Which is not all ways practical for all painters. Aribrush cost being the deterrent. I also mass produce, This mech 1 of 12 of Co # 32 of 36 IS.   There a number of fairly inexpensive basic air brushes out there.  Air can powered and quite usefull.  O0
