The miniatures were painted with a mix of acrylic paints over a black and dark brown undercoat, then washed with Games Workshop brown wash before the detail was picked out. A variation from the animated series colour scheme are the black eye sockets rather than red. I felt that the red eye colour just looked wrong.
The robots are varnished with a 'custom mix' satin varnish - 50% Kleer and 50% artists matt acrylic varnish. I have stated in the past that I feel gloss varnish just doesn't look right. The base is all matt.
One recommendation concerning these superb miniatures - I would suggest that any painter thinks about painting the individual arms separately and gluing the figure together when the paint has dried. The manufacture of the figure makes painting the rear of the gun very difficult once the figure is constructed. In addition any modeller who knows these miniatures will see that legs and poses have been altered slightly to offer some variation - cutting the base and moving the legs either further apart, closer or forward.
Each miniature is mounted on a 40mm round base and stands 45mm tall.
