I finally got around to posting pictures of the last pieces from the Ancients starter set. Here we have the mechano-crab and the robo-shark. Or, if you wish to get all 'official' on me, the Chariniform Light Assault Mech Construct and the Exoform Salvage Mech Construct.
I am more satisfied with the results on the crab than the shark - I was more patient in my painting and used more translucent colours to get a nice blended colour from the legs up. The idea in my head was that the metal alloy is quite reflective, so the colours we see are more a reflection of the surrounding colours (ground below, water above) than the actual colour of the mech. I hope you enjoy them regardless.
Finally, a group with all of the 'Ancient' friends together:
Apart from the initial five figures for each faction, I will also be painting up a leader for each group. I am going to finish the groups first though. Any comments or suggestions welcome!
