"Who's that? That's the Major."

The Major from Ghost in the Shell...

This is a miniature from the Rebel Minis Civilian Hunters pack (http://rebelminis.com/hunterspack.html)

I've been a big GITS kick recently and I noticed this miniature sitting on my painting table loose and I realized she made a perfect major!

I've attached her to one of my laser etched bases.





And from the show:

New Weathering techniques using enamels and worn effects from AK interactive

I've been working on one of my Hell Diver Power Armor figures and I wanted to try some of the AK interactive weathering enamels that I got.

I painted the trooper black, then base coat of light grey on the armor plates. This represented the primer coat.

I then brushed on a thin layer of the AK interactive worn effects.

Once that dried I painted on the base green color I was after.

I then put a little bit of water all over the model and using a stiff brush and toothpick knocked off some of the paint.

Once all of that was dry I put on decals (using the micro-sol and micro-set) and using the Nato Armor Wash (AK interactive) and Earth Enamel Wash (AK interactive).

This is what i've come up with so far:



I'll take more pictures soon, and i'm going to try and put together a cool "Scene" shot too.

What do you folks think?
