Ryuken-​Roku Paint­ing Tuto­r­ial

I received a request recently to detail how I painted up my Bat­tleTech vic­tor 9k in Ryuken-​Roku colors.

Impe­r­ial Navy Cruiser Paint­ing Tuto­r­ial

I was asked for a tuto­r­ial on how I painted up the cruis­ers for my Impe­r­ial Navy fleet for BFG. It’s not too com­pli­cated but it will take some time to pull off, so let’s get started.
