I got given the big guy for my birthday a week or so ago- I've just about finishes painting him and have (ideally) 10 days to get him painted. there are some bits which need finally sticking together still, but I will be painting it in sub-assemblies- something I've never really needed to do before. As you can see, I've converted it a little, and hope to have the modelliing and at least the undercoat done by tomorrow before I go to bed.
The sub-assemblies are:
the 2 disintegrators
I will use my usual scaly green based scheme for the main bit of the vehicle, with the armour painted scab red/red gore. I'm tempted to do the slave in a similar manner to Princess Leia. not sure quite if this would work. The big blobby looking thing on the back is a force field generator, i.e. the one that makes him landraidered.
Haven't managed to get a great deal done today, hopefully tomorrow or Tuesday will be more fruitful.
So here's a little bit of WIP for you. These are actually YESTERDAY'S painting- todays has been done, but I can't take photos of it right now. Anyway, Vect is coming along nicely, I'm happy with how the actual vehicle is turning out- a lot of scaly green and black. I still hate painting vehicles though. Oh, and I've finally worked out how I'm gonna attach the guns- the dark lance needs repositioning after many hours of painting caused it to snap off. Anyway, enough chinwag, some pics:
Right, here's yesterday's progress. Note the DL on the top of the driving station. I'm trying to do skin at the moment, its coming on OK, but there's one or 2 bits I'm not happy with. I still need to touch up one or 2 bits of scaly green on the main body. But its coming along nicely and I'm happy with that.
Right, I've got a lot more done today. I like the force field generator on the back, I'm happy with the black gloss effects on the "tiled" bits and floor. I might try for a marbled effect on the chair, though I'm not sure quite how to do that. I'm really happy with the skin on the slave, though I'm not sure about the bikini. I think I'll do some more extreme highlighting, like on the front. I'll carry that on through the rest of the model. Vect is mostly done. I need to detail and the hair though.
You've inspired me to convert my own Vect. I have the throne, slave girls and 3 unassembled Ravagers and a veritable ton of bits.. really, about all I need is Vect himself, or a reasonable proxy.
