I’ve finally splashed some paint on a couple of Mantic vehicles that came with my Warpath Kickstarter – so, so long ago.
Anyway, I had 3 of the models and 3 plague conversion kits. I’ve made and painted one of each so far and haven’t decided what to do with the final one.
They were spray painted with AP’s Angel Green, airbrushed in splodges with some Vallejo German Camo Bright Green to lighten it, then totally coated with AP’s Strong Tone wash. A drybrush of Vallejo Khaki, then the fun of a few details, the wheels and weathering.
I really love all the plastic Mantic vehicles. So few parts, but they make fantastic looking vehicles without hours of cutting 130+ pieces from a sprue and mold cleaning (like current GW kits). They nearly always come with enough parts to make and magnetise all the various weapon options as well. There are various weapon options, all magnetised for the models below – I forgot when doing the photo’s and just used the one that was currently attached.
For my Plague and Rebels factions in the Warpath Universe, I use the same colours as the GCPS – I guess both of those factions steal the regular equipment. I didn’t ‘over plague’ this one so the other factions could use it if necessary.
As you can tell from the pic below, I had great fun weathering and damaging these models.
