Well through a combination of having another week off work and entering it into the Army Painting Challenge I've finally started painting my Krios Venator.









This is one of my favourite models and its an absolute pleasure to paint. More people need to get a Krios in their lives.

Managed to also snag this for £10 the other day

Altough the model is blah, your rust/weary paintwork is very impressive!

That is the way of chaos: always to cause distress and dicotomy.

Never mind chaos, it is a great model. I realy like the blend of high-tech in a 19th Century casing. Keep it up!

Good to be green

Finally finished my Krios Venator and I'm so proud, absolute pleasure of a model to paint, can't wait to get a Triaros, standard Krios or Ordinatus -when it eventually goes up for Pre-Order-.

Looks great. My immediate thought when looking at that part is it looks a bit flat in the pic. More than likely due to the pic and not your painting.
I have a suggestion, for you Loli, to improve on it. On the green coils, which look good as is (though flat), if you take the green you used for them and mix in a small amount of yellow, it will give you a lighter shade of green. Brighter as well. Then go over the outer edges of the coils carefully, of course, and it will make them stand out better. Also, possibly giving it a hint of a glow.
If your really brave you can continue doing the green/yellow mix in successive brighter layers and get an actual glow effect.
