All three are very lovely :mrgreen:.

My favourite is Miss Messabout in green and yellow :).

Nice weathering on the red duo though :).

Cool. Can't spot either of those minis on the hf site though. Which is the male one?

Oh they're great.

I can't help but think you need a couple of blue ones too!

Kev prefers the heavy helm of the male so it's likely that or damn close to it will be the helm in the plastics.

Good! Was just unsure how to paint the vertical bits on the visor....

Loved the guns, would love a veteran with some facial cybernetics/burns as it would be fun to paint.

Mate, those look great! I especially like the heavy troopers - the weathering looks excellent! How did you do it? Was it with a sponge?

Thanks mate, yup. The orange sponging doesn't show up but really makes it work.

It's old red gore and new scarlet from GW 50/50.  Over a Halfords red spray primer (it's really nice as a base for flesh and reds/browns and super matt).

Weathering is still tricky, getting to the smaller areas is always a pain.  I'd love the do the ultra clean stuff that you do sometimes but I always enjoy making things look used and grotty. When these are in metal I'll have another go.

I do like the red versions of the troopers especially with the gold visors. The Green colour scheme works for me makes her a bit retro raygun.
