I began by painting the face and hands with a mix of Pathfinder MSP “Medusa Green” and Reaper MSP “Olive Skin”. I then painted the outfit with Crafter’s Acrylic “Navy Blue”; and the boots, belts, straps, and pouches with Americana “Zinc”.
Next, because I found I had been painting all my Sci-Fi weaponry black and wanted a change, painted the gun with Pathfinder MSP “Urgathea Red”. A red gun; why not! 🙂 I then painted the hair with Apple Barrel “Apple Black Green”. When everything had time to dry I gave the skin a coat of Citadel “Reikland Fleshshade” wash; and when that was dry, I gave the outfit and gun a coat of Citadel “Nuln Oil” wash.
When the washes were dry, I painted the eyes, and then highlighted the skin with a mix of the base “Medusa Green” and “Olive Skin”. I then mixed Reaper MSP “Olive Highlight” with the “Medusa Green” for lighter skin highlights. After that, I highlighted the hair with Americana “Forest Green”, and then did the outfit highlights with Reaper MSP “Ultramarine Blue”.
I decided the hair highlights weren’t bright enough, so I added some Americana “Festive Green” to lighten them up a little. I then highlighted the boots, belts, straps and pouches with the base “Zinc”, and then mixed in a little Crafter’s Acrylic “Storm Cloud Grey”. After that, I highlighted the gun with the base “Urgathea Red”, then mixed in some Reaper MSP” Fresh Blood” for lighter highlights. Lastly, I painted the base with Americana “Neutral Grey”.
I’m happy with the figure, and I like the splash of color the gun provides. I only gave this a quick spray of the Dullcote, as I held the figure just out the door, becuase it was very humid out. I can see now that it as not enough, or I didn’t shake the can well enough, as it’s still very shiny. I will have to respray it when the humidity lowers.
