Planta

I did not use any metallic colours and tried to give them a more organic feel. The drives of all the other races were done in blue, for the Planta I used

  • 70.957 Flat Red
  • 70.911 Light Orange

something which in my mind looks more like natural fire than artificial drives.

Everthing I would have painted as glass on other ships I painted as an eye. In hindsight, the pupil should have been much brighter...

To add further to the organic look, I painted some of the potrusions like horn:

  • 70.941 Burnt Umber
  • 70.977 Desert Yellow
  • 70.847 Iraqi Sand

Eridani

I painted the eagle (?) iconography in yellow, windows in blue and some parts in metal. Finished for the washing step.

Planta

Finally I am trying to finish these ships. Over a dark green base coat which I forgot to note down the exact colou, I applied several layers of highlights by mixing in more and more of 70.857 Golden Olive.

Eridani

Finally I am trying to finish these ships. Over the 70.985 Hull Red I left off from, I spraxyed

  • 72.712 Vallejo Game Air Scarlett Red
  • 72.772 Vallejo Game Air Terracotta

This was topped with a drybrush of 70.957 Flat Red.

Hydran Progress

Finally I am trying to finish these ships. When looking at them I was not happy with the blue, not enough contrast, so I resprayed them in:

  • 72.720 Vallejo Game Air Imperial Blue
  • 72.722 Vallejo Game Air Ultramarine Blue
  • 72.723 Vallejo Game Air Electric Blue

I then painted some parts in metal colour (weapons and drives), and everything I considered to be glass in first white, then yellow. A darker spot of orange was then highlighted with a dot of white.

Planta

I airbushed a basecoated with 74.602 Black Surface Primer.

Eridani

I airbushed a basecoated with 74.602 Black Surface Primer. This was then airbrushed with 70.985 Hull Redfrom a steeper angle to leave the black as a first shadow.

When I tried to apply the next colour, the airbrush behaved very strange, making strange noises and blowing colour out the top of the reservoir... I discovered this as the reason:

:-(

I ordered a new nozzle already...


[Eclipse]
Hydran Progress

I airbushed a basecoated with 74.602 Black Surface Primer. This was then airbrushed with 70.899 Prussian Dark Blue, then a mix of Dark Blue and 70.925 Intense Blue and finally pure Intense Blue. Each lighter shade was applied from a steeper angle and on smaller areas.

Terran Republic

I cleaned the yellow player's ships of flash and basecoated them with 73.601 Grey Primer through my airbrush. I then sprayed 71.001 White followed by the base colour the basecolour, 74.602 Black Surface Primer.

I am not sure, whether I will drybrush some edge hightlights (yellow & white) before applying a wash, yet.


[Eclipse]
Terran Conglomerate

I cleaned the white human player's ships of flash and basecoated them with 73.601 Grey Primer through my airbrush. I then sprayed them 71.001 White.

After painting the cockpits, weapons and drives, they will receive a wash - no more highlighting.
