Desert Defence Ernie [World War Robot Inspired] Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:16367  
Name:Desert Defence Ernie [World War Robot Inspired]
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Pulp Characters
Creator:New_World_Order  
Date Added:July 23, 2009
Base Figure:Peanut Can, Gashapon, Matrix Sentinel, Etc

Another WWR inspired custom...

After doing a lot of these "hammered metal feel" paint jobs... I've decided to try a DESERT-style one.
(I decided to take the same decals as the ones, the existing 3AA exclusive Desert Attack Bramble has... so that they fit together)

The figure's about 8 inches tall
and somehow I think... that's my best paint up to now.

I used a peanut can, a gashapon ball, tentacles of a Matrix Sentinel, and some various stuff I've found...

Ernie's Backstory:
Ernie's are spin-off's of the Bertie bots.
They use the same Body to save production costs, but have more flexible arms, to do non-combat work at the field.
Aside from combat they are also used for easy repairs on bigger bots, as well as building trenches and similar work, where flexibility and strength is needed.


thanks for any comments. :)

Hey Blayne
Thank you for the kind words..
I use no-name acryl paints...
and I started to spray the whole figure black...
then I looked for a good colour for the basic color..
I mixed 'terracotta' with yellow, white and black....then I added some brown stains... then some black ones... than I drybrushed him with some silver paint...
and in the end gave him a black wash...
that's it.

Great paint job with this guy - what kind of paint / process did you use to simulate both a rusted and windblown desert look for your robot?
I'm hoping to do the same with a post-apoclyptic 'killer cyborg' (similar to the mutants from "Fallout", and would really value any pointers.
Cheers,
