Actual painting is underway. It's crazy , I know. Raptor armor.... the Rednekk way.
FIRST....the lads have been primed with a WW2 infantry olive, then.......
The paints and their corresponding layers. An overcoat of Charadon Granite, which has been thinned slightly with matte medium and water. Then a heavy drybrush of Battledress Green. Drybrush the edges with Gretchin Green and a quick overall drybrush with some thinned Bleached Bone.
Then its off with the washes (or shades) Althonian Camoshade in the recesses with a small brush and a little brown or the old Althonian Camoshade/Druchii Purple mix if I really need to darken something. Here's the end result of that on the LT.
Still have some detailing to do with him, but the base armor color is done.
I got the rude news, I'll be having some shoulder surgery in a couple weeks, hopefully I'll still be able to paint, but I'm going to try to get as far along on this challenge as possible before D-Day. (its actually on June 5...so really D-1) Not sure how much use my left hand will be, but if I can hold a mini with it I'll be able to paint.
