It’s Remote time baby! After painting a bunch of regular infantry for my Corregidor army, I decided it was time to paint up a Zond or two. What’s a Zond? A quick look at the Infinity website tells us, “Basically, it is a kind of semi-autonomous robotic porter, a high-tech beast of burden.” So let’s get to it!
As you can see here, the base is already done. I usually dry-brush bases (which is pretty messy) first then move onto the more neat work. It also looks better on the table to have all my bases finished even if eveything else is a work in progress.
I also did a quick base coat of metallic paint followed by a wash of black and a base-coat of orange.
The initial coat of Jokaero Orange acts more like a primer for this coat of Fire Orange. It would’ve taken a lot more coats of this color to get good coverage. Too much paint bad!
Next I added a wash of Phoenix Red. The key to making a nice, smooth wash is adding a bit of Flo-Aid and water. I keep a separate dropper bottle of Flo-aid/H2O mix (1/20) at my paint station. Use it! 🙂
This step is all about contrast. I used Reikland Fleshshade to define the spaces between the armor plates.
And finally a highlight of Marigold Yellow. Afterward I went back and picked out any mistakes or rough areas.
So there you have it. Orange is done. Later this week I’ll post the next color, BLUE! Oh snappy!
