A mantis


Recommended Posts

Due to my darling other half's desire for me to play CAV I had one of these things tossed in front of me with a "just give it a quick paint scheme ..... something you could play with and stand"


So I present to you my 1 1/2 hour 1 1/2 calorie stompy robot: ::D:

(the purples are all blended metallics)




The base, BTW, is obnoxious, lilac, holographic, glitter nail polish over prepped metal.

Awesome! What colors did you use?

Those are the Createx airbrush paints in thier "pearlized" line (their iridescent line are pearl and thier pearls are metallic :wacko: ). I used the red, purple and blue to mix the colors. It's top, in person, is a glorious cobalt/concord purple that I could not get to not look blue in the photos with out messing up the rest of the colors.


The copper that I used on the gun ports etc.. is Duncan Ultrametallics Copper (from a bottle I have hauled around for about 7 years).



The missle tips are straight, gawdawful flourescent red.
