Painting a Not-Named Mech
Long awaited for practically decades, the paint schemes of the Not-Named Clan’s various units will soon be revealed. I’ve chosen the original unit used during the Pentagon’s Operation Klondike. Certainly choosing the colors involved would be quite an undertaking, so after much deliberation, I’ve chosen to use «redacted» as a base color.
Begin with assembling the «redacted» after having washed it to remove any dust and mold release agents used in the manufacture. Clean off all visible mold lines using needle files or scraping with an old craft knife blade. Pay special attention to the «redacted» so that you get all of the «redacted». I assemble my miniature using two-part 5 minute Epoxy. Here is what I will be starting with:
Since the overall color of the scheme is «redacted» I will use a «redacted» primer. If I had chosen another basecoat, such as «redacted» then a primer like «redacted» would be more appropriate.
Next is a basecoat of «redacted». Be sure to apply your basecoat in thinned layers. The first layer should not be totally opaque. To get full coverage you would probably have to apply the paint too thick. After two or three thin coats I can progress to my chosen «redacted» colors of «redacted»,«redacted», and «redacted».
As you can see, the effect I’ve gone for creates quite a «redacted» with the «redacted».
Finishing touches include using «redacted» for the weapon barrels and ‘Mech’s joints. I’ll also perform a painting method called «redacted» on the «redacted». You can see a close up of this here:
After applying the appropriate decals. An overall dull-coat spray is given to the miniature to seal and protect it.
Finally, here is the finished product!
After all these years of speculation, anticipation, and even «redacted». I hope you’ll enjoy presenting this new paint scheme to your «redacted»!
