The Grimgerde was a kit I instantly fell in love with the moment I first laid eyes on it, and much to my surprise I was given one for christmas. Unsure what to do with it, as I really like the original colors and design I wanted mine to stand out. So I snapped the kit and mulled the build over in my head a few times, before deciding to paint the kit in the style just like one of my close friends uses for all of his builds. The entire kit was broken down, any mods were done, and seams were filled, and then I separated everything by the color it was going to be.
This entire kit was painted by hand, with Vallejo acrylics. Every surface on this kit received no less than 3 coats of paint. I primed using a matte black primer, applied via a brush, and then I built my colors towards the end goal gradually mixing different shades of paint to help ease the transition. The texture on the kit comes from Dry brushing every color onto the surface from multiple different angles to help hide the brush strokes and provide some level of uniformity to the completed model.
