Just kind of silly now. Throne of Everblight really goes from “horrific” to “goofy.”
This plastic kit was fun to build and easy to magnetize. I put some effort into the red, but kind of phoned it in on the rest. For the red, I started with zenithal priming, the applied yellow, orange and red inks. I washed with Secret Weapon Ruby wash, making sure to wick it off the brightest ares and large flat areas. Seems like a decent way to get a jack painted fast. Too bad I’ll probably never use this kit (all three jacks are terrible, rules-wise).
Berserker (also check out the metal one I painted ages ago)
I magnetized and painted Juggernaut 52 a while back. The rest of his parts were magnetized but I just got around to painting them. Nothing too impressive with the painting, except that I managed to get so close to the original paint job. Destroyer and Decimator arms and heads are new, Juggernaut is previous. (Marauder parts were used to make a non-magnetized kit)
Juggernaut (ie, the previously painted bits)
Kozlov and his [unofficial] character jack, Lesovik.
Paint strategy was zenithal highlight, then red, orange, yellow inks, then red ink again (probably should have skipped that step). Then Secret Weapon Ruby wash (okay, but not great for wide-open areas on Lesovik; great everywhere else). Black everywhere that wasn’t red, then metals and black wash, then details.
Slight update on this guy. While I was basing #40 and #87, I decided to base, matte coat and number this guy. Meet the new 52. #52 is magnetized, but only the Juggernaut bits are actually painted. He can also be a Decimator or Destroyer.
Here are the three of them together.
