With the previous NOVA Corp figure I had worked on, I had tested my idea to paint them in a sort of chameleon armor, making it look the same as I paint my usual rocky desert-like bases. In other words, painting the figure and base as one. I planned to do the same thing with these four figures
I prepped the figures in the usual way; soaking them in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish- soap added, then giving them a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsing and drying them. I then glued the figures to black-primed 1" fender washers with Aleene's Tacky glue, When they were dry, I gave the washers and figures' bases a brush on coat of Elmer's white glue, and dunked them into a course sand mix. When the sand mix had dried, I glued the figures to a tongue depressor with a couple drops of the Elmer's glue each.
Lastly, I gave the four figures and bases a lighter drybrushing with Americana "Buttermilk".
I then moved on to paint their goggles with Accent "Real Umber", and added some small reflective light highlights to the goggles with White paint. I then painted some of the assorted straps, breathing tubes, and ammo magazine with Folk Art "Butter Pecan". Lastly I painted the guns' muzzles black, and a small insignia on their right shoulders with Folk Art "Tomato Red".
