I started out by priming the Achilles black. I then painted it with a base coat of Regal Blue. Following that up with a base coat of Boltgun Metal on the silver areas, Dwarven Bronze on the gold areas and then P3 Hammerfeld Khaki on the bone areas. These spots then got a wash of Devlan Mud.

After the wash had dried, I painted the silver areas with Chainmail. The bone areas got a coat of P3 Menoth Base coat. The gold areas got coats of Shining Gold and then Burnished Gold.

The yellow areas were given coats of P3 Rucksack Tan, GW Golden Yellow, and P3 Cygnus Yellow. The red areas were painted with P3 Sanguine Base, Sanguine Highlight Khador Base and Khador Highlight. The white areas were all painted with multiple layers of P3 Morrow White.

Finally, I filled in the blue areas with Ultramarine Blue, then a layer of 50:50 Ultramarine Blue and Ice Blue, and finally an extreme highlight of Ice Blue. My last act was to add some writing on the scrolls with a .005 Micron pen.


  1. Nice one mate - I like how you've customised it with the brass etch. I've been tempted to pick one up but think I will hold out until they get the Mark 2B back up.

  2. I picked up one of the Mark 2B's back when it first came out. It is a nice kit - there are picks of it up on my Flicker account. I'm eyeing the LR Armored Proteus right now, but not so certain about how soon I will pick it up.
