I've finally got around to painting my giant robot - either a 70-ton BattleTech Warhammer heavy BattleMech or a Robotech Tomahawk Destroid Mecha depending upon your point of view.
It didn't look very impressive when it arrived from e-bay, but I could see the potential...
It's going to join my OUDF forces - see the trooper for scale.
After a spray of dark grey car primer, the base coat is Humbrol acrylic 75 matt bronze green, ighlighted with 86 olive green.
Camo stripes are Humbrol 33 matt black with humbrol 67 panzer grey drybrushing to show up the edges.
A few waterslide transfers finished things off. They're a mix of models & manufacturers; Airfix Sea King, Matchbox Westland Wessex, Italeri King Tiger, GW vehicle markings...
The arms and torso still twist, giving a nice range of poses.
The UK temperate camouflage scheme fist in with my DLD AFVs
It's suitably imposing, but not so big that it's impractical on the tabletop.
A few close-ups of the transfers.
I think they add a nice finishing touch!
Now to try it out in a game...
