Relic Knights (Pt.2, More robots & more girls!)

More Relic Knights stuff today. Big robots! What's not to love about big robots?

Let me start with this KS exclusive couple, Betty & Lug:

Betty's the girl
I considered painting the big robot in yellow, as officially suggested, but I finally kept it into the white & orange palette and I think it works.

Kind of iRobot, one could say
Next one was a little bit tricky, the Royal Wrecker. This is what I got:

And not a single instructions sheet
I had to paint before mounting some of the stuff.

Hard time looking for shoes
After some trial & error (and about a thousand layers of white), I finally got this:

Without instructions, ha!
Looks dizzy, but the pilot is not drunk, I promise
I must say that mounting this one was a little challenge, but in the end it was easier than expected. Only minor issues with mould lines and no mess at all making pieces fit into each other.

More stuff coming soon. Though I maybe show another different piece before, I'm working on another different robot...

Stay tuned!

    1. At first I panicked, but later on I managed to make everything fit in the correct place... I think. If you look at the mini and you don't think of Picasso, then I succeeded...

  2. I don't envy you painting all that white.

    1. Well, the only secret here is patience. White priming, a first layer of a white/grey mix and then layers and layers, each one adding some more white to the mix. They have to be diluted, or the effect would be quite shitty. By the 200th layer or so you may begin to see the results :D

  3. Yes, good job. While I was looking at them I was thinking the same thing as Conrad: I just couldn't face such vast swathes of white!

  5. Your whites are amazing ... non-painters won't know this but whites are sooooooo difficult to paint. :)

    1. Thank you! They are indeed! Xo
      They are driving me a little crazy, but on the whole I think that white suits well these minis!

    1. Thank you! The aesthetics are a real change, and some of the minis are quite challenging, so I cannot complain! :)

  7. Lug worked out particularly well in that District 9-ish palette.

    1. Thank you! Ha, I didn't think of that, but now that you say it, you're right! :D
