Anachrony: Mini Painting

Just a few shots of my recent painting attempts at the exosuits in Anachrony. I really enjoyed the minis in this game. They’re very detailed and a nice departure from the “creature-based” sculpts I’ve been painting recently. Not having painted many “mech-like” objects, each was a learning experience and experiment.

I struggled so much with the “octopod” legs and must have painted them three or four times.  My overarching plan was a worn, rusty, much-used look for all of the suits but those legs really threw me for a loop. Getting good coverage inside the legs was also a struggle. Don’t get me started on getting good coverage for yellow. Ugh.

This was also my first attempt at a textured base. The planet in Anachrony is supposed to be uninhabitable without the exosuits so I stayed with dirt and rocks and didn’t add anything green. I hope that came through in the final product.

My Kickstarter copy of Rising Sun should be arriving in a month or two and I’m really looking forward to painting those minis next.
