This week’s Miniature of the Week comes to us from Brian Compter of ScrapYardArmory.com, who painted up this vivid Warhammer for his Classic Battletech lance.
Brian described his painting and modding efforts for us: “I painted this miniature for a friend who intends to use it as a commander’s ride in his mercenary force. You can see one of his lance mates in the background.
On the base of the miniature, you can see the battle scarred remnants of the ever familiar MadCat Battlemech. I spent a lot of time fretting over just how I was going to get the miniature to pose stepping up onto the MadCat torso. I was worried that I wouldn’t get the hips straight and end up with a ‘Mech more suitable for a limbo contest than the battlefield. Everything ended up alright though.
This miniature was fun to paint. Once I started it seemed to paint itself really. Sometimes I think some colors are easier to work with than others. Green is one of those colors for me.”
If you head over to ScrapYardArmory, Brian has some more pics and a more detailed description of the step-by-step process that went into this ‘Mech. Plus, the site is a great resource for fans of Classic Battletech.
