Ret Cav 1.0

The Hyperion was dropped off tonight and the client was very happy. So happy in fact that I now have some more shiny models to paint up for him. I am going to be working on the Ret Cav unit and eViros (the Ret Cav Warcaster). Over the next several weeks. The paint scheme on these is going to be "black" armor and the swirl things will be a really rich red, with a touch of silver to round it out. Not sure what I am going to do with the bases yet but hey that's part of the adventure right?

So have a few shiny, bare metal pics.

Hyperion Finished.

Well its finally done. I think this one turned out pretty well. I would have preferred a different color scheme but its not my model so its all good. 

I learned a few things on this paint job. First and foremost if you are going to mix custom colors WRITE DOWN what you did. Its a pain in the rear to try to recreate a color from scratch. Second, ask for models not to be assembled prior to giving them to you. Lots of weird angles on this one to work around. 

So whats next? I am going to finish up my pAlexia and the risen than another Hyperion for the same guy. 

Here have some pics.
