After giving up on the Rail Golem with the deadline for the Wyrd Painting Contest 3 days away, I drove up to the LGS to sulk. Hanna was back in stock, and the gears in my mind began turning again. My ambition was stoked once more, so I purchased her. That night, I assembled and primed her.
Caution: follow the instructions when you assemble her! I didn't at first and it caused an unsightly seam which I did not have time to fix.
Over the next two days, between work, I painted her up and got her entered in the contest. I probably wont remember all of the colors that I used on her, but I will try my best.
The robot is airbrushed while Hanna herself is hand brushed.
Vallejo Game Air:
Vallejo Game Color:
Livery Green (I think)
Started out with a Sombre Grey basecoat
I added some black to that and sprayed it from underneath.
Added more black and sprayed where the light and dark meet.
I let that dry and cleaned my airbrush. I sprayed white where the highlights would be.
I got Hanna basecoated. I forgot she has blue hair.
I refined the robot some more with the airbrush.
Hanna got her first layer. A lot of people that left comments on her liked the Tome. It is Charred Brown and Scarlet Red.
With the airbrushing done, I added the Hexed Lichen for the OSL
I honestly don't remember if I did any more airbrushing or not. I painted the seat with Charred Brown.
Hanna is getting pretty close to completion. My Freikorp will follow a similar neutral scheme.
I glazed Hexed Lichen on the back half of her.
I am brightening the OSL. You can see the newspapers here. They are black and khaki, lightened with Off White.
Now that she is mounted, I can do the final OSL and highlights.
I wanted to break up the large metal surfaces with some rust and weathering. This was really hard to do because I was so proud of the NMM. The rust began with a glaze of Charred brown, and I filled it in with Parasite Brown. I added the glaze around each rivet to help them pop.
I think I added mixed some Livery Green, Sombre Grey, and Off White to drybrush the cobblestones with. I didn't want the Sombre Grey cobblestones to blend with the Sombre Grey Robot.
I did some NMM on the book with Charred Brown, Gold Yellow, and Off White. The book cover is Charred Brown, Scarlet Red and Off White.
I did the text and images on the newspaper with Sombre Grey, Black, Khaki, and Off White.
I glazed in the shadow with Hexed Lichen and Black.
I was very happy with the end result of the model, as well as the amount of good comments that it accrued during the contest.
