Just finished the first mecha-man figure. I went for a black / bronze colour scheme on this one.

Awesome! Just awesome!  :o  :o  :o

I´m desperately trying to convince myself that they will look terrible in blue metallic, so that I won´t have to buy a load for my evil machines army!!! Would look great for the "Butler´s Jihad" setting I wanted to game...

Sinister, but surprisingly cute as well... :D

It looks great!

Very nice. I was thinking of a similar color scheme.

What, no glowing sinister eyes? ;)

That scheme works suprisingly well, i can't wait till mine arrive.

I got to say I don't like it.  Maybe it would look better in person.  The problem I have is the figure is so cool that it deserves more color to bring out the detail.  I am thinking some type of non-metallic metal (NMM) paint scheme.  A gold NMM scheme would probably be perfect.

Gold NMM

For NMM gold use the following colours:
GW:
- Snakebite Leather
- Skull White
Foundry
- Lemon Shade
- Lemon Light.
If you only have GW paints you can use yellow mixed with Snakebite Leather instead of Lemon Shade and yellow mixed with White instead of Lemon light.

The picture shows where to place the colours.

Hi guys,
I have sent all your orders out so your Mechas should be smashing their way through your homes any day soon.

Mahon: The Mechas are 28mm scale but are little stocky fellows they fit in well with Dick Garrison Figures and of course the Captain Gamma figures.

As regards little red beady eyes: The Mecha-Men do indeed have such eyes, its just hard to make them glow so as to be soon fom the darkness of their cowl.

I have had some preview photos from Dr. Bob Olley in his genetics lab and the next two Proton Rangers will be out hopefully before the end of the month.

These will be Klug Pluton and Jek Starkiller. And I'm quite pleased with them even if I do say so myself. :love:

Oops sorry...... :oops: I should have said the Mecha-Men and Captain Gamma are available now from me via my Email address.

I do have a website.....sort of. Its just a matter of attaching it to my Domain name and then then sticking it on its hosting space. ( Do I sound like I have any idea what I'm talking about?) :?

really nice although model could benefit from some more final highlights :) anyway I remember in one of old he-man (and the masters of the universe :P ) cartoons skeletor had a swarm of similar flying robots under his command; they had buzz-saws instead of "grabbers" but still similar ^^

OK so I went home and viewed this topic on my laptop computer.  The pictures look much better than they did on my work computer.  After viewing them from home the paint job is much better than I first thought.  Good job.  Still I think you could add some more detail, like adding glowing eyes and maybe a different color or two.  I still think the NMM method would really bring these guys to life.  Too bad I suck at the NMM method.  :lol:

Hi guys
as I mentioned above, the colour scheme is just my own preference. I did ask Craig what the 'official' colour was and he said white (think stormtrooper) so I'll try and do one like that next.
I'll try and add red eyes to the next one but the 'sockets' are cut out on the figure so it isn't going to be easy..

Tri3, I know what you mean about nmm looking good although like you, I suck at it   :lol:  
Plus I paint my figures for gaming rather than display so can't afford the extra time needed to do it    :P
