Well happy with end result! Its tough to get back into painting minis after at least 15 years. I used to find it really relaxing and delivered a great sense of satisfaction when I was 14 but trying it now has taken me a year to get back into. Working on the fine details is frustrating when your paintbrush slips and then the models themselves are fiddly to build. But the worst was actually completely losing an eye for colour schemes and artistic effects. Had totally lost an eye for colour and design... But it's gradually coming back (if I do say so myself)! Been working on these for at least 6 hours a day for 4 nights and taking massive 'risks' in terms of trying out new techniques. The yellow one I got into doing all the advanced basics, but the black rust one was completed with effects and techniques I've never tried before (effects I had seen before but could never work out how they were done) - which just sort of came out of the creative process. Like the red lines as the weathered/ erosion effect on the armour.

Loving that weathered yellow effect. The black is less visible in this picture.
I used to love building war planes and tanks as a kid, I'd always make them worn, distressed, muddy, never as "fresh from the arms-fair".

Happy new year guys and gals! Thanks for the props. Really happy with these... just you wait till my next set! Got two more to finish.

@joker it's much harder to the do the distressed look - never quite mastered it, till now! The base coat of this is dark bronze and then i've drybrushed it in black so that the rivets go black but the seal looks all rusted. You can sort of see the tarnish on the front panel, but i'll try and post some better pics. I was trying to go for a sundrenched black metal effect - was inspired by the alien robot in district 9.
