So over the weekend I did up a test coloring for a Vanguard trooper. It is for my friend's box set as he wanted his to be white like in the original box art.
I followed, though slightly less steps, the steps of Jay from over at Biohazard Painting as he had made a great little tutorial on how to paint them up using GW's new paints.
This is how he sits after some work.. still need to clean it up a bit, and finish off the gun.
|I know there is a mold line here, but it was a test model. It might get stripped and redone as it is.|
Sorry for the blurry shots.. they were taken from my camera before heading off to work this morning! Will do better ones once the other test models are created.
I think the Vanguard and the Halo character's armor look similar enough. So I will do some more tests on them and see how this goes. I can also see a bit of battle damage being added to the armor as well since they will be fighting off the strain quite a bit in the coming weeks!
Let's see how it goes and stay tuned for the finished photos of the first set of Level 1 Strain models. Just need to touch up a few pieces, and then paint up their bases.
