WIP Mercenary units
« on: 13 June 2022, 14:02:39 »
I decided to make this thread as a reminder how the current lance of mercenary mechs I am working on have looked before I ruined them by drybrushing edge highligths.

These are meant to be a part of a "general" unit, that can be Eridani Light Horse or Crucis Lancers or whatever strikes the fancy at the moment.

All of these are done in the same base color, it's due to lighting that it seems that they aren't.

EDIT: based mechs

These is the second mercenary unit that is "work-in-progress".

They are also all the same base color and I intend to paint this unit in a light or dark woodlands camouflage paint scheme, haven't decided yet.

Here's a group shot to show the actual difference in the base color between the two separate forces.

That is some properly smooth olive drab. Absolutely gorgeous!

The first lance is almost done. All that is left is to varnish them.

Yesterday evening, after I finished dry brushing the dirt and dust on the legs, I group them all up, looked at them and did a double facepalm. I don't know what I was thinking while I was doing that. I was pissed at myself.

The impression was much improved when I looked at them in daylight. For my taste, I still went overboard with that drybrush, but well, you learn as you go. Or re-learn, as the last time I painted some mechs was back in November 2020. A lot of things felt like I was doing them for the first time (again).

I actually like the dust effect on the feet/legs. The only one I think it's not looking good on is the Locust (?), but I think it needs more dust drybrushing up the leg. It looks a bit like camo...
