Now the thing I have learnt with the Clamavus is that this model should be painted on the sprue!. I am a firm believer in building models and then painting them as this usually creates a better bond on the contact points. However I wish in this case I had made an exception as there are lots of awkward areas that can't be reached once the model is built and I know they are there...mocking me in their unpainted...nay! naked form!
This model was painted using mostly Vallejo colour range paints, unless stated otherwise.
I started undercoating the model in Grey
Next I painted the cloth with GW Mephiston Red
Then I painted the staff with chainmail (72.053) but I wasn't keen so I painted it bright brass, which was still too bright so I rummaged through my paint collection where I found a dark metallic paint called Tinny Tin (72.060) which was exactly what I was looking for!
The speakers, control panel and backpack were painted in chainmail
Next I painted the pistol holster, tapes, cable to the speaker staff, boots and any straps in GW Abbadon Black
I painted the radiowave locator in Stonewall grey (72.049)
Then I paint a button on the tape deck and some cables with GW Mephiston Red
Next I painted the remaining cables in Iyanden Darksun (GW foundation yellow) then added black stripes
Then the flesh was painted with Tan (72.066)
The exterior of the book under foot was painted with Charred brown (72.045),, and the pages painted with plague brown (72.039)
Next I washed the whole model in AP dark Tone
Once the dark tone was dry I highlight the armour with Stonewall grey (72.049)
The cloth was highlighted with Bloody red (72.010)
The flesh was then painted with Dwarf flesh (72.041) and highlighted in GW Elf flesh
The base was then coated in GW Astra Granite debris, washed with AP dark tone, then highlighted with stonewall grey, and the edge of the base of painted black.
