Here's what happened today;
I went with the Davion Guards I muted all the colours in the scheme the blues washed out and the red is earthy the white is off white and it'll settle down more with weathering (see those elementals). I tired to be very light with paint coat to let the base show through. Why the new Davion Guards well I wanted white to paint its that simple.
The legs are glued. I aped the pose on the MWO concept poster which is easily achievable with the joints I designed for mech (articulation in the ankle, knee and hip). One could go for a more extreme striding pose but my patience doesn't equal the amount of fiddly glue time it what take to do that.
You'll see some more updates over the week as painting goes on
