I got the Reaver base coated in its intended scheme. It is pretty plain, but the last of the old ebay paintjob is gone forever.
I sprayed it black, then drybrushed up with some Tinbitz for the base hull.
The armoured plates used the new GW Foundation Paints: Fenris Grey with a Boltgun Metal trim. It still has long way to go, and has virtually no fine detail yet, but this is a “basic state” I can build up from.
