My Painted PHR for Dropzone Commander

Hey, folks.  Just a quick post to really just get some pictures up on the interwebs so I can then post them up on the Hawk Wargames Forum (

I know some people don't like it when the sensor domes on the PHR models are painted a contrasting color to the bodies, but I liked it when I did these guys, and I was in an almighty rush to get a sizable force painted up for Valhalla last October.  The blue on the bodies is actually a Minitaire Ghost Tint, color "Plasma Fluid".  It's somewhere between a wash and an ink.  I painted on a basecoat over a white primer (Citadel) and then for the second coat mixed the Plasma Fluid with the Minitaire Retarder, which lent everything a kind of "aquatic camo" look.  I liked the end result, so, being pressed for time, I ran with it...

Hope you like them!

    1. Hey, Mike. Thanks! More to come (just not right now... I've got a game tonight and tomorrow night, and my wife and daughter will be gone as of tomorrow noon until Monday evening, so I'm taking the rest of this week of to get some serious game on!)
