So I have painted a wee little rocket-bearing truck from Reaper's CAV line. Even with the rocket raised it only reaches the heads of my miniature figurines. I'd say it's the smallest vehicle I have ever painted, except so far it's the only vehicle I've ever painted. WIP thread here.
So to stretch a bit out of my comfort zone, and in honor of Amalor Myrnix, who was so into them, I picked up a CAV model, the Ripper truck and rocket launcher, #24576. I am currently playing in a Shadowrun game where my character's day job is as a bakery delivery person. She has a fully armored outfitted combat truck which she uses to transport baked goods across the greater Seattle area. This is not a literal representation of it, although spiritually the rocket on top takes up about the same amount of mental space. Also, I am pretty sure the truck in the game is not purple. But you know what? I am enjoying painting this as a tribute in the spirit of things anyway. It is smaller than what I am used to, but enjoyable. I started with base coats of variations on a mixed purple of Phthalocyanine Blue, Quinacridone Magenta, and Titanium White. I added shading with other tones, and grime with washes of a near-black mixed from Burnt Sienna and Ultramarine Blue. I also used that near-black to paint the windows and tires. I plan to add more detailing and colors. The rocket will be glued to its launch pad, but I am not sure I am going to permanently glue the launch pad to the truck.
