Looks very nice. I just hope that paint holds up. I recommend you seal it if you haven't already.

I'm not a fan of the Games Workshop paints for minis. They're too thick for my taste, so you lose a lot of detail. THe metallic colors also tend to be rather odd. There's 1 or 2 "normal" metallics then a bunch in really weird tints. I mostly stick with Tamiya for metallics and Testors for normal colors. Tamiya has the best metallics, hands down. Note that I never use Flat Black. Flat Black is too runny. I find Testors Aircraft Interior Black provides a much better finish.

I used to be big into Battletech, and here's some of the minis I painted. My earlier ones varied widely in quality, but my later ones were much better. http://members.cox.n...t7/gallery.html

I used to use reaper paints, till I found Privateer Press Paints (P3), though I doubt, strongly, that either of those would hold up to paintball.

and, while the stock looks a little strange, I think overall it's a good job, and a good looking marker. I have my reservations about that nerf body being able to hold up to paintball impact, but time will tell, no doubt.

thanks Gen! I used to paint warhammer figures alot so i just used that experience....and the same paints 2!

Oh yeah? I may have something to use all my half pots of paint on now :D
Wonder if I have enough Boltgun Metal to paint my Tiberius's...

That thing looks awesome man.

Thanks Pirate. The silver parts of my gun are boltgun metal. I just used a dry brush approch over top of a black undercoat. Less is more!

Boltgun metal with a small dap of Chaos Black always leaves that Nice Dark and rough look.

When acrylic paint is too thich for detail work...a few drops of water as a thinner make things much easier to work with.
