Finally! Pictures of My Secret PHR Project
I've been working on these guys for quite some time. After the Helios were finished, Mega Mike suggested that I do something different for the walkers and/or the rest of my army. So with input from a friend at my FLGS, I chose orange as an accent color. The effect is quite striking, although it looks in like these pictures the Orange is a bit washed out and looks more yellow than orange. I took these pictures with my iPad in the FLGS at about 5:00 PM today, which was a bright, sunny day in Mesa, AZ. Two of the walls of the store are all windows, so there's lots of natural light, plus the fluorescent lights overhead. I'm going to try to take some more pictures after the sun goes down to see if I get a truer color, but I suspect I'll just get a lot of reflections from the overheads. If all else fails, I'll take pictures tomorrow in my backyard, where I get decent natural lighting at dusk, but I wanted to get these posted (as I wait for gloss varnish to dry on the latest batch) so I can try to post on the Hawk Forum and enter these guys in the July Painting Competition.
I got the Nemesis and two squads of Ares/Phobos/Neptune, along with two Junos (with both turrets magnetized to run each as either variant) and a third Neptune finished quite a while ago, probably two months ago or more, and was working on another two squads of Ares and Phobos, three more Neptunes and four Mercury Drones when I got laid off (June 16th), and that derailed me for about a month. But I've been working on finishing those up for the last 2 or 3 weeks, and they're almost done!
But for now, more pictures of the first batch:
