Monpoc Repaint

To inaugurate my new regime of smartphone based posts, here is a lovely Monsterpocalypse figure I have had on the go for over a year. I had such fun finishing him that Im inspired to dig back into the box and start another!

  1. Like it! I'm not terribly fond of such a crisp finish on monsters, but it sure as hell becomes this particular specimen. Suits the fancy carapace pieces I guess. Whats more the not-a scratch-on-it look kinda radiates the 'our weapons are useless' feeling.

    1. Thanks Tomo!
      The sculpt is super clean, so I just highlightes the edges (The original PJ had a tinted metallic on the carapace parts)but yeah, I want a real Toho studios vibe from these.
      I have 2 of each monster, so I could do a grunged-up scheme too I suppose...

  2. Not a lover of the model, however the paint job is quite excellent and it almost makes me want one!

    Your work just gets better and better! Black and red are probably the hardest to get right! Which you have

    1. Haha.. Thanks Keith! To be honest the credit goes to the old GW foundation paints (no longer available)Mecharite Red and Charadon Granite. The Mecharite gives a really solid base to paint red over. 1 wash, 3 highlights, done!

  3. WOW!!! I love it, that is astounding. Every time I see one of these posts I am tempted to take out my Monpoc and repaint them.

    1. Lots of red and black done well, Jacker. Plus the green ball thingy with the highlight is brilliant too!

    2. Thanks guys! When painting something this huge, I use a very old Mike McVey technique called "Feathering" which is basically just blending in stages with very thin paint.

    1. Thanks Ace! The secret to red is a clean, even basecoat, then don't go too crazy with highlights.
