It is possible that Citadel created these figures for a Battletech licence (or perhaps a similar in-house game), because in actuality, these giant robots are anything but:
|'Scavenger' is barely larger than the Eldar Ghost Warrior or Paranoia robot!|
That said, I recently acquired myself a Scavenger, and aside from being a little disappointed that he is underwhelmingly not a giant robot (I had never had one of these 'bots in hand before), I was more than happy to lavish a quick and dirty paint job on the fellow!
After removing him from his solid base, and rebasing him on a 30mm slotta, I gave Scavenger an industrial yellow paint job, complete with plenty of exposed primer, grime and chipped paintwork.
The metal areas got a little bit of rust, but overall I was aiming to keep it quick and simple. Including basing, this guy took less than 2 hours.
In hindsight, I wish I'd done the eye-slit red instead of orange - I may go back and redo it, but for now I'm content to leave him be - the newest addition to my engineering crew.
|'Scavenger' is a multi-purpose lifter/breaker unit, designed to support maintenance and engineering crews.|
