Just a quick update today. I've been prepping the armour panels for painting (man that's a lot of gold trim to go down!!)
I went with the same colours as the Reaver, the Legio Astorum Legion. For the blue i went for the mottled effect to match the Reaver. I also happen to think it looks rather cool!
The reverse sides of the panels were sprayed with Vallejo Gunmetal as some of these areas would still be visible after being stuck on.
The other area that needed a bit of attention before i started on the trim was the knee plates. These would of course look great with a bit of extra detailing, so the left knee was done in yellow.
The right was quartered in white and turquoise. Both knees will receive Legio Astorum transfers when its finished.
Next up is the mammoth task of the gold trim....ergh...
