Painted this Clint in the colors of my friend's mercenary unit, made for the campaign I'm running... The Space Cats... I didn't pick the name. I faded outward from the torso from a creamy white to gray to black, and tried to give the barrel of the autocannon a warm, just-fired look. The mottled look is from a thin ink wash I applied over the whole model as the last step, I think it added a really nice effect in adding to the smoothness of the color fade, making the grooves and cracks dark, and making the differences in color on the back details pop.

You're getting there, you just now need to take that extra time to do the detailed work and they'll be lush.

Fochts Zeus, in ComGuard livery

Quote
Description
The Zeus was first built by the Lyran Commonwealth in 2787, as the First Succession War began. It had a long and storied history within the Commonwealth, becoming a respected assault BattleMech. In its original production form, the Zeus was designed to keep an enemy at arm's reach, although it could engage opponents at closer ranges if necessary. The Zeus has also seen newer upgrades using recovered and experimental technologies. Since it was the Lyran Commonwealth's pride and joy, it was usually one of the first 'Mechs to receive upgraded equipment.

Armament
The prototype Zeus carried a PPC, but the most common, best-known variant of the Zeus, the ZEU-6S, mounted as its primary weapon a Defiance Type J Autocannon/5, backed up by a Coventry Star Fire LRM-15 for engaging enemies at long ranges. It also had a Thunderbolt A5M Large Laser to engage enemies at intermediate ranges and two Defiance B3M Medium Lasers for close-in work. This made the Zeus a 'Mech that was deadly at any range.



You have to understand the code of duty and honor that rules those who pilot these engines of destruction. Placing such an awesome weapon in the hands of an individual implies a similar gesture of trust

And now, THE iconic 3025 'Mech. The one that was on the cover of the very first Battletech rulebook. You know the one I mean. I painted it the same was as I did the Clint. My only gripe is that in the photograph the SRM pod looks a bit... tilted. Otherwise I think it came out beautifully.

I like this one so much more than the reseen verson they used for the 25th anniversary box set.

Eh? The 'Mech on the cover of the intro box is a Hammerhands, which is supposed to have been one of the designs that led up to the Warhammer.

ohh so it is... I thought it was the reseen Warhammer. Glad to be corrected, TY Leeko.

Based on feedback from the friend I'm painting minis for, I rehashed the scheme for his mercenary unit. I painted this Battlemaster (one of the few reseens I actually like, shut up haarp) in front of him so I could get his direct feedback and then stripped the Clint and painted it accordingly. Sorry for the blurriness, I had to hold the camera up a little to catch the details on the bases; I normally rest it on my desk so my shaky-ass hands don't ruin the pictures.

My Archer (another tolerable reseen IMO) came a little fapped up so I decided to hack it apart with clippers and make some kinda cool project out of it. It's going to be posed something like how it's pictured below, painted, and glued down to a handmade base. I guess its leg got blown off, and falling on its side caused an ammo explosion? I might pair it with another 'Mech in some kind of victory pose, but I'm not sure yet.
(old pic removed)

EDIT: Painted the Archer. Going to have an Atlas standing over it on a hand-made green stuff base.
