Taking a small break from Resistance to delve back into a Shaltari army. But this time I'm going full ham and copying the studio scheme. Done a small test on the new Scorpion models. Needs more practice but so far so good. If I keep going like this I will be very happy indeed.

Im sloooowly working on my Dropfleet UCM ships at the moment, or rather, when I get a decent spare block of time. Pretty simple scheme: Prime/Base with Army Painter Uniform Grey spray, wash with a 50/50 mix of Nuln Oil and Lahman Medium, Dry brush all over with the Badger airbrush paint (can never remember the name!!! :twisted: Begins with an "M", they make the ghost tints) Badger Fur, then another dry brush of Concrete Grey which is a slightly lighter grey in the same Badger line (I might have those backwards, but I don't think so -- 1:23 AM recollections, and my paints are in the trunk of my car) just at the very leading edges on the top. Then I'm picking out panels with Pumpkin Orange (Badger again). I'll use a bright blue as a spot color on some of the doo-dads that stick out that look like they'd light up. Vallejo metallic on the guns and other appropriate metal parts with Nuln Oil/Lahman Medium on those. Basically the same approach as my Dropzone PHR, but less attention to making them perfect -- I like that orange-and-blue on grey scheme a lot, and someone else painted my Dropfleet PHR, really nicely, but in a completely different scheme, and I figure the grey works for Colonial fleet ships.

I've also got my Dropzone UCM that I need to get a-going on, too. But we'll be starting a Dropfleet Escalation League on June 10th, and I'm going to be doing Shaltari for that, embracing my inner hedgehog. LOL. No idea how I'll paint those, but it might force me to finally bust out the airbrush and fire up that new compressor with tank that I got three years ago and have never used.

How's that for a status report? Ha! :P

Scorpion done for now, I have a few bits and bobs to finish on it but it can wait. I just wanted it to look pretty for some pics :-)
