Deet posted his Aegis last week, and as I needed something to fill in for Darian's post while he's busy with Star Citizen, I thought I'd share mine.
I completed this defense line ages ago, but never got around to shooting a showcase for it. While it doesn't stack up to Deet's work (not much does) it still came out pretty well, I think.
The kit is a bit of a mess, as the sprue gates and parting lines are pretty pronounced on these old tools. A little cleanup, though, and the whole thing paints up rather quickly.
I applied an airbrush base of vallejo sick green, then dry brushed sick green and white for a highlight pass. I think airbrushed a light dusting of vallejo beasty brown from the bottom, to create the battlefield grime. Lastly, I washed the recessed with an oil wash.
I've had this imperial pilot forever. He came with the 4th edition starter set, Battle for Macragge. He doesn't really serve a purpose in a force org chart, but he sure has been the center of a lot of tugs of war as the objective marker in several games!
