Rackham Clone Nefarius

This is a Christmas GB project, for year 2012. This group build is kinda fun and scary at the same time: It's  agroup build where participants randomly pick the modeler he is going to give a christmas present to, and at the same time, receive one from a friend who pick his name. The main purpose of this Christmas Gb is to encourage and give a chance to modelers to try out new genre of kits which he had never tried.

Well, for a person who prefer to build it big, I'd got a war hammer miniature from Kong. Thank you so much bro! Besides that I gotta know that this is a special edition for the manufacturer's 1000th miniature.

This is a white metal kit. basically cleaning is pretty much simple as this is a very nicely casted kit.

For painting, the first time I use Vallejo acrylic for a full kit paint job. Learning about blending, highlight and such. The main mistake (I think) I made is instead of a white color base coat to enhance the game color of the body, I use silver. Yes, when there is sufficient light, the silver base does give  a very vibrant and lively color. However, when light is not abundance, the whole kit looks extremely dull.

The armor/silver part, I use Mr hobby Maziora, duo tone/color shifting, paint. Which the effect is quite subtle, but i just can help to love it. The silver part looks, silver, purple, green, all together in different angle. I did spray a little extra clear color onto certain part to further enhance the color, just that this clear color do not move, appear/disappear as the color shifting paint.

After that, since overall it's not that great of a paint job, gotta do some extra finishing/display to distract attention. Yes, I hv made n put it into a round glass globe.

This is a pretty exciting experience.....
