(Editor's note - Adam presents two BIG projects for his PHR force - the mighty Type-4 walkers! I have not had the pleasure to face them yet, but am looking forward to fighting alongside them at the upcoming tournament!)
Coxer here with two new additions to my PHR force, the mighty Type-4 walkers – The Hades and the Nemesis (they're new to the clash and glimpse the nemesis all around them).
Both of these were gorgeous model to put together, I would say that the occasional leg still seems to disconnect from the body, and in hindsight a pin might have been sensible with these beasts, but as you can see these kits have about eighteen pieces each and thankfully few lines, so I was able to clean them up and partially assemble them fairly quickly.
Next was the Brown Ink and the panel lining – that was a huge pain, and a massive task, but I think it worked well in the end – it was very time consuming, but really adds to the definition. Finally I painted the blue, and highlighted that – I went for blue (after an initial grey) on the Hades' vents, as it was lacking in blue I felt prior to that, and just added to the scary nanomachine vibe.
I assembled the pieces and then weathered – initially grime streaks, then liquid dust (all over the underside of the thorax too) before finally dry dust and varnish – as well as the lower legs I also went for the joints to the body as that felt like they would be a great accumulator of grime. Lastly I added gloss varnish to the various lenses.
Anyway that’s the boys done, I hope you enjoy!
