1/100 Unicorn Gundam 03 Phenex - Custom Build

Gundam Guy has just posted an amazing set of images of this quite beautiful "Phenex" suit. It even comes with a 'full psycho frame'... whatever that is. Gilding on this scale is really touch-and-go. Things can look awesome or utterly abysmal, but in this case the modeler TORI has landed the right side of the divide.

  1. ZOMG That is amazing! I find it fascinatig that from dioramas to gundam to 40k there are so many "in house" styles of painting but rarely do we borrow from from different schools.

    You're probably one of the few with the washes you use and the gloss bases and the gold leaf for instance.

    Imagine a Space Marine Terminator painted like that!

  2. I agree with Minitrol, but when it does happen, it is frequently glorious. One such topical example is here: http://exodites.blogspot.com/2013/07/xv104-riptide-conversion-finished.html

    I hope to do something similar sometime soon, because I'm a sucker for cheap giant robots in my wargames.
