Machine Wraith (Cryx) 👻

This time it's 100% blast from the past. 
That oldie machine wraith model has been staggering around my painting station for several years, and I got it don't even remember when did I get it. When I found it - it was sealed with thick layer of dust and was a friggin' mess. So decision was made to bring that nasty Cryx construct back to existence - another piece crossed off the list of shame.

Official paintjob is pretty dark, but I rather wanted mine copy to fit remaining Cryx force painted so far, so there's rust, dry pigments and such. After model was varnished with Revell matt it was kinda satin rather matt, so I airbrusheded it with another layer of varnish - this time Vallejo. Whole piece got that "mist" filter (no idea how to name it) and it took another layer of hand applied varnish to make most of it disappear. No idea was is the matter of temperature or varnish itself but I was seriously afraid the model would have to be washed and repainted. But it's more than fine for gaming.

I used to underestimate it back days - until I managed to possess first enemy warjack and turn it against own force. It's pure joy watching enemy smashing own (possessed) warjack in hope to shake evil spirit out of the cortex 😈







EDIT:

I now can see all those pics are kinda blurry. Hope to take some re-shots when the next Warmachine model is painted.

    1. Dzięki 😉
      Nie za bardzo miałem pomysł na niego ale za jakiś czas spróbuję wygrzebać bliźniaczego ducha i spróbuję znowu - myślę o znacznie jaśniejszych szmatach tak, żeby kontrast był znacznie większy 🤔

    2. To może dobrze wyglądać, mógłbyś jeszcze przewody pomalować w różnych kolorach, jak kable w wiązce elektrycznej.
