Painting C & C style
« on: April 23, 2019, 10:02:07 pm »
Hey,

I have finally started painting my AD collection. I want to use C&C3 color schemes as this game really reminds me (and probably a lot of others) of this good old franchise.
Someone had posted some pictures on facebook already but there were no colors mentioned in that article.
Therefore I want to share my thoughts:

GDI: Yesterday, I started using Zamesi Desert (GW) as Basecoat and washed it with Seraphim Sepia (GW). The result was a little bit too brownish-yellow for me.
Therefore, tonight I plan on basecoating with Zandri Dust(GW), same wash and highlight with Ushabti Bone (GW).
Edit1: Zandri Dust matches the GDI colors - I will use that color scheme. Stay tuned for pictures.

NOD: Currently I plan to have a black basecoat and Dawnstone(GW) or Stormvermin Fur (GW) as highlight. C&C3 NOD units also have a lot of Red so I plan Mephiston Red/Evil Suns Scarlet as second colors.

In both cases I use Gunmetal (Army Painter) for the tracks and guns with Nuln Oil (GW) as wash.

I'll post pictures once I'm satisfied with the results :-)

Awesome! I look forward to it. Josh Percy's industrial metal feel ones are already evoking memories of Total Annihilation, too!

Would be happy to see some of Joshs industrial metal minis!

Here are some pictures of mine - WiP.
I still want to add a second color (canonical Orange for GDI, maybe even a third like a yellow brown), decals and have to highlight the Shield Generator.

The Ushabti Bone highlight is a little hard for me at the moment. As the pics are rather close up I'm not sure yet if I will correct that... from a distance they will look fine I guess (as usual).

Some smaller Update - including NOD.
I'm getting there, I think. For the red parts of NOD I tried to mimic scorpion legs (at least a little :-)).
For GDI the markings have to be a little less curved I think.

Not sure about the finally spot for the decals (currently it's just printed on normal paper: For NOD maybe at the center of the Front and nothing on the sides...

GDI 2 Player Start units are done (apart from the decals)!
I've started working on the Wombat but maybe more NOD will be next :-)
