The last post didn’t really show off the base inserts that came with the Kickstarter so here’s a better shot.
These were very easy to paint:
- Basecoat in VMA Gungrey
- I washed various parts in different washes, all from Secret Weapon. I used Dark Sepia, Blue, Yellow Snow, Green, Armor Wash, and Amethyst. Don’t wash the entire model in the same wash, vary when you place the different colors.
- Drybrush VGC Silver.
- Finally I dusted Earth pigments all of them, again from Secret Weapon, this time their Dry Earth Pigment kit. I affixed the pigments with 93% alcohol (the highest % my corner drugstore sold). Basically, you let a brush soak it up and then just let it flow all of the base. It’ll dry in about an hour or so.
- Finished them off by painting the lips black. I went back and forth on whether to keep the purple bases, but ultimately felt the black lips made the rest of it ‘pop’ more.
