HI all I originally started a thread in the Cav section about painting my UTF (united Terrain Federation) I've had to change from photo bucket to flickr for the images will update the wrecked mech as well soon

I like that pattern!

Thanks Glitterwolf, I must admit after the first coat of purple then dry brushing I was wondering will this work on these bigger areas.

 

I'll be posting a little more detail of on progress of the next batch will pick one and show how i fudged my way through the scheme the idea was for it to be quick and easy to paint but would still look decent on the tabletop.

I see pink

Star hawk IV base colour

13_UTF_starhawkIV

 

 

light pink dry brush then blue/grey 1st camo added

 

14_UTF_starhawkIV

 

Camo red brown added overlaying parts of the blue here & there

 

15_UTF_starhawkIV

 

Khaki Drab added in blotches onto the parts of the camo red brown areas, canopy started

 

16_UTF_starhawkIV

 

Just got the black dots to do and a few missile and lights then I'll be ready for shading

 

as you can see a quick and furious way to paint ::D:

I did get a little distracted for a bit and changed from seeing pink by starting some 15mm BTR160s APCs I'm doing for an Neo Soviet futuristic force.

Just been having a thought about the possible colours for the bases did a few test pieces to see what might be the best candidate for the job

 

34_utf_bases

 

34_utf_bases2

 

quite liking the 1st 2 or far right at the moment.

I think the grayish base makes the figure pop out more.

 

Course, that’s the opposite of what an actual military unit would want, but ... painting.

Thanks for the feedback I've gone with this base after thinking it through what do you all think looks OK?
