SFD Giant Robots - Scavenger

Hello,
For today's post another classic Citadel Miniature, one of the SFD Giant Robots this time called 'Scavenger'.  Sculpted by Bob Naismith in 1984, the SFD Giant Robots had a limited release in 1987 via the Spring 1987 mail order flyer for use as Warbots in Warhammer 40,000 Rogue Trader, see page 42 in the  rulebook.

This is my third robot finished from this range, I went for a different approach and painted it very difference compared to the other two I have painted previously which were sharp and bright.  I went for a really waethered, dirty, damaged appearance to reflect it's name Scavenger, started off with the colours of a JCB or CAT plant vehicle and then distressed the paint job with washes and weathering powders to extreme levels, luckily here in Birmingham UK it's been like a building site for years so I have had plenty of reference material and everytime I made it dirty it just wasn't dirty enough compared to what I was seeing on a daily basis.

You can read my previous post on the first two I painted a couple of years ago here and you can read some of my ramblings and own theories on these Robots here.

    1. thank mate, it's quite disheartening at first to kind of destroy a neatly painted miniature :)

  3. That's my favourite robot in the range and you've done a stellar beat up paint job on it! I've got one similarly painted in my engineering crew :)

  4. Love this! Love to see it alongside some Marines for scale – I can't work out what base size it's on!

    (P.S. You've repeated the front and back shots.)
