So I am on my last two units for my Algoryn Combat Force. The first are the Targeter Probes, and the second are the stalwart AI squad. I am still working on these.
Nonetheless, I have bought them and I resigned to painting them, simply because I did not want to buy another blister pack. This models are solely for gaming and their paint job reflects this.
Don't get me wrong, I really like the concept of drones for a futuristic setting, but I prefer the plastic drones of the Concord, which are much more cleaner.
Next up are the AI Squad. These figures on the other hand I like - and a lot. Unfortunately, there are only 5 different models which can only be diversified by changing heads. Once again their are only 3 different heads, so the variation is slim. Hopefully in the future, things will change with more plastics for the Algoryn.
Below, I have a small and short tutorial about how I go about speed painting them. First I give them a good medium grey primer, after which I paint up the basic colours as neat as possible. The less colour variation - the faster the process.
The next step is to give them an enamel or oil wash. I prefer enamel as it dries faster.Don't over do it, and try just to direct the paint into the seems. I went a bit overboard, simply because the Algoryn armour is a mass over overlapping plates. This makes selective washes time consuming.
