Fanguad, what are you washing the quick-and-dirty doctrine with?

I didn't feel like painting my Black Diamond today, so I thought I'd start cleaning a Pacer Bot - a fairly simple model in the Cerci Speed Circuit faction. Then I figured I'd assemble it. And then prime it. Oh, and while I have the airbrush out, I might as well prime the base, directional highlight the mini, base coat the mini and base. Then I looked at the studio paint job and decided to get started on that - just the blacks and whites. Then I did them all. And decided to do a little bit of freehand (the design on the upper pods) to match the studio job. Then I got the airbrush back out and painted the yellow lines on the base and sealed the mini.

Long story short, I painted a mini, start to finish, in an afternoon. Seven hours, including watching several anime episodes.

Image Image Image Image
The base is Badger Opaque Green over white primer. The street is 80 grit Emery Cloth sandpaper, with VMC Yellow Ochre lines painted with a stencil I created out of plasticard.

For the mini, I used Vallejo German Gray Primer, then Vallejo White Primer from upper angles all the way around. I then used VMC Fluorescent Magenta as a base coat. RMS Pure White and RMS Pure Black for all the accents, with some leftover VMC Basalt Gray and RMS Rainy Gray for the highlights of the nozzles and exhaust. It's a vehicle, so it has a nice gloss coat, which unfortunately interferes with my pictures. Also, the pictures don't properly capture just how bright that magenta is. It's the same color as the studio paint jobs for Princess Malya and the Pacer Bot.

Here is Darkspace Iron Chef, aka “Solid Chef” or “Solid Snack”. Solid Chef sits on a 50mm base.

The primary colors are various shades of grey, matching the rest of my Black Diamond rank and file. In order of darkest to lighest: VMC German Grey, RMS Armor Grey (there's not much of this), VMC Basalt Grey, RMS Rainy Grey. The primary component of his fur is RMS Chestnut Gold.

I’m very happy with how the carrots came out, but I am most proud of his eyes. They are fairly large and I was able to get Derek Schubert-style eyes going on and he doesn’t look too walleyed. I used the same matte vanish as on my Black Dragons but didn’t spray from so far away, which has eliminated most of the graininess.

Looks good. The eyes are great ... any chance of a close up?

I'll try, but I can't guarantee the camera will cooperate. Here's the tutorial I used for the eyes. The only difference is that I put down a layer of white under the iris color - I find that putting color straight over black comes out too dark for my liking.

Leapin' marmods!

He looks great. Crisp painting and plenty of contrast between the various greys.

Here's a closeup, so you can see the full extent of my dust and lint.

Great! Thanks for the link to the eye tut'. If my minis had eyes the size of pennies, I could do that.

Dust and lint be damned - that quality work is great!

Very inspiring work all round. If I may, a couple of questions about the vending machine.

What colour/s did you use, as the shade of red looks pretty close?

Which font did you use for the logo?

And again, love your work.

There are some Coca Cola fonts available online for free. I like Loki Cola, because it has both versions of the capital C.

I think it was Loki Cola that I used, but like Götz said, there are a bunch to choose from. As for the red, I think it was Badger Air Opaque Red. I've got a couple reds in that vicinity - P3 Khador Red Base and MSP HD Brilliant Red are pretty close. The logo was printed with a solid red background. The color was slightly off from the paint, but a tiny bit of blending and you can't tell.

Thanks Fanquad & Götz,
have downloaded a couple of fonts (inc Loki Cola) and will see if my limited skill matches my vision, once I get some more figs at least. :)
