Yesterday evening I spotted something lurking on the floor to the side of my painting desk, part-way finished - my extra NSL hover vehicles. I also realised that I probably need them for the game of Gruntz I'm planning for the Scattergun Gamer when he pops into the club during his UK trip in just over a week. The only steps left were the basing and to do go over some bits with satin or gloss varnish.
I did the basing last night, at which point I remembered the note I wrote to myself when I did the previous batch of vehicles - to add the basing mix before priming and painting everything! Today I've brushed off the excess sand and grit (especially where it had got onto the plenum/skirt of vehicles), painted the basing texture, added some patches of static grass and done the spots of gloss/satin varnish.
Anyway, they're all done now. The colours didn't come out quite the same as the original batch of vehicles - I think I used less of the Hull Red for these and the camo colours airbrushed through mesh seem to show up better this time.
Righty-ho, pics time:
