I finally got around to finishing some of the Heavy Gear kickstarter Plastic Jaguars. Decided on the armour colour and then getting it was one of the hardest part, partly due to the lack of guides or feeling like the ones I did find did not quite have the right armour colour I wanted. I was not 100% happy with the base colour of my heavy gear miniatures so decoded to try something else.
As you can see they are far less yellow than my last attempt and the use of washes does much to improve the finished result.
These are one part of the Northern Army Plastic set which costs about $60 US and has 14 models in total.
I used the following paints from Reaper, Citadel/GW and Vallejo ranges.
Reaper Dune Shadow (61104) with Citadel Reikland Fleshshade wash
Reaper Ash Grey (61126) with Citadel Nuln Oil Wash
Reaper Skunworks Gunmetal
Reaper Adamantium Black (09124) for the weapons and power plant
Citadel Mephiston Red
Reaper Sparkling Blue (09104) for the eye Lens
