Man, this base color is awesome!!What colours and technique did you used to paint this beige/white??
Grajo, first I base coated with a dark green over black under coat. Then I mixed vma: us khaki with a lot of satin varnish and sprayed that on with an air directiona top down direction. Then I airbrushed on minitaire desolate beach in zenithal highlights. Finally, I blended more highlights of vmc:deck tan and white with a normal brush.
The mechs arrived and I'm loving them. Thanks again for painting the group and they came out amazing. On the technical side I think some of the weapon highlights might be a tad bit wide/heavy. Don't get me wrong they look great and I couldn't do better, but if you make the highlights slightly thinner I think they'd pop even more. Right now it has the impression of the hull color as reflected light on the barrels but it's a bit broad which would tend to match a chromed barrel a bit more than a gunmetal tone if that makes sense? I love the models and it's a very minor point of critique. The little nicks and hints of battle damage are awesome and really add a nice depth to the armor panels. You did a wonderful job on them.
Thanks! Yeah, the autocannons - I got a little heavy on the highlights on those...I can totally see what you mean. I should try to get some reference photos next time.
