Mantic Corporation Rangers

I painted these guys for Joe at Mantic Games to use in demo games at stores and trade shows. To speed things up I started out by airbrushing them with a dark brown color and then hitting them again with successively lighter colors with the airbrush held a high angle. This created a nice zenith light source effect and lessened the amount of blending I would have to do with a brush. To finish the armor, I highlighted the top/left edges with a lighter brown to emphasize the light source. Skin, fabric and webbing were all added in next with a brush.

Next up: ten Veer-myn for these guys to duke it out with.

PS. I'm still getting the hang of the settings on my camera, so bear with me!


  1. Looks cool! What camera are you using to get these shots?

    1. Thanks, its a Canon Rebel XS. Nothing too fancy.

  2. I like your earth-tones, Marc.
