Here is the completed unit.   Unfortunately, between the Camera and the Camo's effectiveness, it appears difficult to see finished details.  I experimented with these by using Silver for the Canopies instead of the Ultramarine. I am not sure which style to go with.  Ultramarine as for blackout look, Silver, continue to try to perfect the Gold impregnated look, or?  Any suggestions?   Next up will be the 14th. Cav.

14th Cav. formation

Two under strength Platoons, and an Artillery Battery make up this Company.

I think the two platoons will be completed by Fire Drakes.

 

Ogre

Archer

Scorpion

(Fire Drake)

 

Centurion

Dictator ‘70

Dictator ‘70

(Fire Drake)

 

Six Mastodons

First Company is completed except for the two Fire Drakes to be added. Any highlighted panels are part of the various sensor arrays; same idea as the Navy's Aegis system. Basing I am not sure of as yet.DSCI0001.thumb.JPG.dfc0c546af2ce94c47d88965da7052eb.JPGDSCI0002.thumb.JPG.71d0a3806b3b52c49c20ae6709007f87.JPGDSCI0003.thumb.JPG.e221fdcd75c804195ad8377f082dcded.JPGDSCI0004.thumb.JPG.6307ff4c8a097cbb2b8c783ba970a84b.JPGDSCI0005.thumb.JPG.9cf819630bfe927558588b5946bd4b0d.JPGDSCI0006.thumb.JPG.13fea8cc1aa0591fef98c1a78da9a63b.JPGDSCI0007.thumb.JPG.4596600d53e2427885a86f9b175996cd.JPGDSCI0008.thumb.JPG.72e8ac77411716f9d04b598e988b785d.JPGDSCI0009.thumb.JPG.d98f4980cdf5908310b058c92c1a507f.JPG

Did you do the painting on these with “Spray Granite?”

 

Or a toothbrush flick?

 

Although I commend your effort on a Camo pattern that is digi-camo-esque, and scale appropriate, it comes out a little hard on the eyes.  It would benefit immensely from lining or washing to pick out the panels if possible.

Testors CreateFX: Gravel Grey, Sand, Dirt, or Moss Green.  The stuff is so effective as camo, a wash will be the way to go.  It has to be looked at, at just the right angle to see the fine lines.  I just started painting the Fire Drakes and they hide quite well in my spray box, you will see what I mean.

Next phase of the project is on miscellaneous components.  Fire Drakes primedDSCI0001.thumb.JPG.d837ecf8435f9ca4677bbfc312184bf2.JPGDSCI0005.thumb.JPG.bf6eeca1b128cdacbab1d549a211af92.JPG and beginning of camo.DSCI0007.JPG.da659be4e25fcf11db5927029b8954af.JPGDSCI0006.JPG.7d6b766fd3a49728aca95e9bbbbe321f.JPG  Kraken, not sure what to do with this, anyone have a Kraken Tail Assembly kicking around?DSCI0008.thumb.JPG.bc27cbecf15f44c14baed583076f6ee1.JPG  The BT bases I will try right side up instead of upside down as I mentioned before for the better potential of basing options.  Flat bottom vs. top with the shoulder.

14th ACR and the 2nd ACR

4th and 5th Squadrons of both, with unified Regimental Command; currently short one unit.DSCI0002.thumb.JPG.ca37585e85aeae057dc45c8bbe64e2f2.JPGDSCI0007.thumb.JPG.1083dec9697cd17a8887710e9e9adfab.JPG

 

For the time being these units are operating jointly until such time as they can be reequipped from loses sustained from the initial war upon entry into the Galactic power struggle.DSCI0003.thumb.JPG.b7d1bbe75ef179565b4ca364caeaa167.JPGDSCI0004.thumb.JPG.3237d701ab0e73998c115837ffb12f66.JPGDSCI0005.thumb.JPG.c61ade08316fcadbc9723b6912339f9c.JPGDSCI0006.thumb.JPG.6a230d2adc622a704f0c9b7197043424.JPG

This completes the 2nd. and 14th. ACRs. Many of the shots are with and without flash to show details that may or may not show up due to the camera's limitations.  I have started putting running lights on the aircraft when not in combat.DSCI0005.thumb.JPG.44b63f4be2854ce27627c2b93deab7a3.JPGDSCI0001.thumb.JPG.b6c5e97dcb017a2936fc8c63209183e0.JPGDSCI0006.thumb.JPG.9b6d1fc800c4de791ef35fb2cc5024dc.JPGDSCI0007.thumb.JPG.2bb6bbc6c9c69395bbc85b9ddab081be.JPGDSCI0008.thumb.JPG.bd1d5f171b7e4edb374bd752715d20ff.JPGDSCI0009.thumb.JPG.d5ff485d8a3f0a9389847dcadba75c56.JPGDSCI0010.thumb.JPG.2756c0a1fc83a5b82c63f5daa9ff8ec1.JPGDSCI0011.thumb.JPG.97b69ca0e3a9ed156085611299ef9c59.JPGDSCI0012.thumb.JPG.7105a6f68140984a2ab7b0868ba8d2c7.JPGDSCI0013.thumb.JPG.d73438826eb7b4dd0f7f1c370fbb1f83.JPG On the newer Fenri models I left the engine assemblies free to rotate for landing mode.DSCI0014.thumb.JPG.6c3535c40e996ca13c3ca5d670ad309f.JPGDSCI0015.thumb.JPG.d34dae41fc06e97d18664c1bf7c60ed3.JPGDSCI0016.thumb.JPG.cf7e22074a96e3256c9791507494450f.JPGDSCI0017.thumb.JPG.d41324aa0a79689bda124bb5ef05004e.JPG

The combined 2nd and 14th Armored Cavalry Regiments remnants are mostly complete.  Some bases to attend to and unit markings mostly.  2ndACR:DSCI0003.thumb.JPG.c58abbf660761caa40b0f87cb27c63f1.JPG  14thACR:DSCI0006.thumb.JPG.402b6cb8909e35051e373a1a76dc3b0a.JPG For a brief time a unit painted by Spaztica was with the 14th but that has been since transitioned to the Black Watch Regiment.14acr-.thumb.JPG.df979cde82be66bc697c9c3e714cfae6.JPG It did not quite fit in with the Camo theme.570203986_ToddsRedYellowSteel.thumb.JPG.12ae37f9328638417a3989f6c346b6bd.JPG Just a few more shots,DSCI0004.thumb.JPG.534d29692dcdfe9b66132cd9c0b922c8.JPGDSCI0007.thumb.JPG.212bb218bea2242fd18a4076c4a7d458.JPGDSCI0010.thumb.JPG.c0fac3094a41771c55dc045195756062.JPGDSCI0011.thumb.JPG.830b9e7f0036bf3d620460882d7211dc.JPG2ndArmor.thumb.JPG.44da9c77adef09a25a7e4525b5ccf863.JPG14thArmor.thumb.JPG.bd0b14cbc625fca8e5aedf3db4a38c5e.JPG anytime specific shots are desired just let me know.

Next up is MercNet.  This one is labor intensive compared to what I have tackled so far.  More detail to deal with and quite a few CAVs in this unit beyond what you see here.DSCI0001.thumb.JPG.f073192e478010fa8cdedce673189f8d.JPG DSCI0002.thumb.JPG.7a276a17390294cfec365ee38201fc55.JPGDSCI0003.thumb.JPG.6e1eb13098bc020b75b6ba2c6d3e2639.JPGDSCI0004.thumb.JPG.74e3a381367ca6cc09d957281c954039.JPGDSCI0005.thumb.JPG.e9a001ea23a85b061821c7b76ef5a04f.JPG Now... if I could only remember where I put the Decals.

choose files...Well let's see how this will work out, something is messed up with the site.  The first 17 are mostly complete, just short on the smallest of the MercNet symbols.  I will need to order some more Fighting Pirannha decals.DSCI0001.thumb.JPG.e1d0f0d1aead099d5adb4fed1c85d7be.JPGDSCI0003.thumb.JPG.eaab5748a402aba933c6a1bd96e2bfa5.JPGDSCI0004.thumb.JPG.582b267a128b7c38de8f4e6c9abb5a9c.JPGDSCI0005.thumb.JPG.81131ca228686c8121ae3018f9b50a82.JPGDSCI0006.thumb.JPG.74f95dfe8e2fc4a08339add20e51e354.JPGDSCI0007.thumb.JPG.1eaf4611f51e680b63e6357f90ac2470.JPGDSCI0008.thumb.JPG.4537bc3493a2ed3b2bcdfec87bf576d3.JPG
