The machines I am painting for a friend of my dad are all done in a "Blood Lord" Computer scheme of bone and red with a little gold and silver thrown in for a good mix.

I'd love to see pics of them...

Been a long time since I've run into that bad-ass.

You didn't thank god. I just remember that when I saw him I knew I would have to commit a fair number of troops.

My "bigger" Machines and more specialized ones tend to have unique schemes.

Dreadbot is the display one (from the packaging).

I tended to use a basic red and bone accents on snipers, succubots, and runaways, and bone and purple on Assault Fiends.

I posted pics of the BAP and FROG BAP in the media gallery.

Who did the paint job?

I love the blue colouring on the FROG.

Wow, fantastic work. I love your choice of national color schemes. But the Superfortress is the real star. Is the nose art free hand or a decal?

Dude!! Great to see all your UNE troops again, its been years since we played. In fact, I don't recall seeing the Canadian paint schemes with the extra black camo pattern & red visors - they are particularly good! Seems to me you just had Canadian troops in flat olive with black boots when last we played...

Love the American & Swedish units too.

Really?

The OD with black were the first ones I painted.  They were my first UNE commandos!

Hey thanks.  I just didn't feel comfortable with bright colours on the UNE.  Even if disruptive patterns and such don't fool the machines and futuristic sights, I figured it would be in honour of the previous generations warriors.

The nose art on the superfortress is by hand with brush.  She is Katie II, in honour of my Regimental museum's universal carrier, aka Bren gun carrier.
