Since the last post I applied a once over of burnt sienna oil paint. That was rubbed off with an old rag. Then I applied a loose wash of black and brown oil paints to the bolts, gears, and joints. After that had dried I covered the model in Testors Dullcote. I then applied clear gloss Tamiya paints to the the lens in the center hatch. Mig Jimenez fuel stain was added to all the pistons and joints. The model was glued to the base and the legs and feet were dusted with some Secret Weapon Miniatures powder.
The Easter egg was textured using a rotary tool. I'm quite happy with the combination of the texture, Rub 'n Buff and washes/oils. I think its really believable as metal.
Green Stuff Industries Tentacle Maker. The saw blade is polystyrene sandwiched between two brass gears from the craft store. The rest of the arm is polystyrene with a large bead at the shoulder joint. All the brass couplings were treated with a three color patina wash.
The claw is all polystyrene and it moves. The grease in the joint is from Mig Jimenez.
The big shoota' is made from polystyrene and a casting of a Gatling cannon I also scratch built and molded some time back for my Imperial Guard.
