Geeky Hobbies: Sunday Afternoon Painting Work in Progress

So here is my steam powered super robot I’ve been working on for a bit. I still need to paint the arms and do a whole bunch of detail work. I’m going to add some rust and aging effects, some dirt, and some corrosion on the brass piping still. I’ve been working on this one since Christmas, but that’s what happens when you’ve got deadlines.

To totally establish my geek cred, that red lettering says Larry Correia, and the green says Monster Hunter, in Ordic. (Warmachine’s equivelent to Portuguese). :)

It looks great, Larry, but can it take Howard’s battle-wagon?

Utterly SHINY! Speaking of geeky, I took the liberty of giving you mental telepathy and human max expert levels on every type of firearm known to man for the RPG scenario I wrote up for CONvergence 2013. I reckon you’re at least as cool as Tommy Monahan

I never thought of Ord as Portugal, but now that you mention it, I can totally see it. I was thinking a mix between Spain and Scotland, before.
