I am thrilled with the speed at which this first unit is coming along. I have finished 5 models in about a week which is lightening speed for me. I have gone with a very basic painting scheme. Basecoat colors (off white, red, flesh and bronze) followed by a wash of GW Badab Black on the metal and Devlun Mud on everything else. Then, I reapply the basecoat color, add a highlight and that is it. Simple but I think it still looks pretty good.
At this rate, I should have my first unit of 12 done in another week!
