Painted Kromlech Claw Arm

Filed under: Modelling

We’ve had a few bioniks come up in our GoMo campaign so far, but most haven’t been painted yet. In a previous game during an intensive day of play (we managed about five games, one of which will have a battle report) one of Grimlug’s Ladz received a claw arm. Now there’s plenty of power klaw models out there, but we wanted to try out one of the new Kromlech claw arms (available from MaxMini), so a hand was dipped into the communal bitz box.

Flamekebab posted some images of his finished yoof with claw arm along with some step-by-step photos over on the MaxMini forum last night, he’s contributed to this site before and was more than happy to let us use his images:

After undercoating the arm in black, it was lightly painted with Tin Bitz (GW) (not fully painted, not quite drybrushed).

Then it was drybrushed with Gunmetal Metal (Vallejo):

The rest of the model was painted and then rust was added to the model’s metal surfaces. This was done using this method.

There you have it. Click on the images for bigger versions.

    I’ve also put a lot of rust on Grimlug’s Ladz’ trak, Spike. I’ll see about some photos of it soon.
