Well, it's been a while since I posted, but I am pleased with these minis. One is a Hurley drone, painted in the blue-grey colour scheme of my Vanguard figures and the other is a Hurley conversion, battle damaged from a hit with Strain nano tubes sprouting from every orifice.
I painted the regular Hurley second and I am much happier with the result. I did not make any deliberate changes, but the shading is less obvious. As always, the minis look better in real life, the shading does not look as abrupt as it does here.
Here are the pics:
The smoke damage around the blast hole is Tamiya's Smoke weathering compound. I like it.
