1. I went through and blacked out everything that I wanted black or metal. P3 Thamar Black and Vallejo Air Steel were used here. I stippled P3 Morrow White along the edges with blister foam.
2. Black was highlighted with Minitaire Coal, sept markings in Minitaire Nebula Red. I had added glows in with Minitaire Ghost Tint: Purple but didn't end up liking how it overtook the mini. So I went in with Minitaire Saddle Brown and Coal to make burn marks on a lot of the metal an ends of the plasma guns. The armour recesses / shades were painted with Minitaire Nautilus Blue and P3 Thamar Black at a 80/20 mix ratio.
3. I figured with something called a Nova Reactor this thing would have a lot of excess heat being generated (and considering in the fluff the suits are killing their pilots with radiation). Using Secret Weapon Exhaust Black I went around the metal node things to make it seems like they are burning the suit from the inside out. I used Secret Weapon Dark Earth on the feet to match the base.
Tonight I am going to finish him off; I need to do the red on the head, make the lenses look like lenses, grasses for the base and possibly something else cool with the plasma gun and sigils / nova intakes
