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



Well I finally got the project on the road heres my test pieces almost finished just needs the bases finished off

Started with an archer, raptor and Ronin Cavs with 2 ashigaru's missile vechiles

did a base coat of purple with a dry brush afterwards

then added camo scheme as per my other link with tester pieces of paper

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.

New update on next batch of Cav's I'm painting with a short how I did the scheme with a Starhawk IV Cav


I see pink



Star hawk IV base colour




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




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




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




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 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?




I've assembled the next batch ready only one more to go after this then they will all be painted




Hopefully to another productive week will post painted pictures when they are dry
