Let’s talk Battletech: Miniatures – Continued a.k.a The Daily DM Planned Better

Hey Dear Readers, today I’m going to continue on with painting my Battletech minis. I don’t expect this to be a very long post, mostly because I will be priming my two Inner Sphere mechs, and doing a base coat on my Clanner mech.

Also, update on my shipment from Catalyst Game Labs, I got the link for my downloadable content, which I am guessing/hoping means my stuff is being shipped.

In any case, on to the painting:

Here we have my big boy, my 100 ton Atlas. Ain’t he a beaut!

It’s Primer Grey time!

This guy really is big, it took me two large dollops of paint to get about 2/3 of him primed…

And I still have a ways to go! Also, it doesn’t help that he has tons of nooks and crannies.

Two more dollops of paint got me done. I may see something later after it dries, but I’m calling it good for now.

Now for the Black Knight.

I’m still working at priming the base, but for all intents and purposes, he is done. Now he and the Atlas just have to dry.

Last, putting on the base coat for my Mad Cat/Timberwolf.

I was looking for a good color, a dark blue, to match the blue for the Sigma Galaxy. And I found this:

Personally, I think it’ll turn out great, especially after shading is done.

Here we are prior to painting, after being re-primed:

I know the other day that I said that I was going to go with the Rasalhague Galaxy paint scheme, but I ordered Ghost Bear decals and don’t want them to go to waste. I know it won’t be 100% accurate due to the fact that the Sigma Galaxy uses a green hued decal, but I think I’ll just be fine with the regular decals.

Here is their paint scheme:

A nice dark blue with gray highlights.

So here he is with the base coat. Remember though that the blue will be a slight shade darker once I get done with doing shading.

Although it does look very similar to a certain blue of ultramarines, they are different. This one is actually a little lighter. If it wasn’t so dang expensive, or I had actually thought about it, I might have used Macrage Blue. C’est la vie.

In any case, what do you all think? I hope you’re enjoying this little installment of me painting my metal battlemechs. Let me know your thoughts in the comment section below.

Until next time, Dear Readers…
