Hi guys

A painting progression on the cheap mech, started with a grey undercoat, then black wash, and white dry brush for pre shading, I bought a contrast red to test how they are, and thought I would use this project for the test, applied the contrast red, and then regular acrylic black, the contrast would suit those wanting to paint large numbers quickly, but I wasn't happy with the results, so have gone over it with acrylic red (Vallejo), next up I'll do a black pin wash, then highlights, then add some details, then weathering. I think I need to add more detail to the base, rubbish and debris, thoughts?

Looking good so far. Do red ones stomp harder?

Sure, ZuluPaul. They stomp faster, which everyone knows, and it's mass X velocity.

Mass x acceleration, actually, but no question that red accelerates faster, especially ones with flames painted on the sides.


Teasing aside, I love what you're doing with them, and the touch of the mech crushing a car is awesome.
