Martini is the radioman/crystal ball operator for the platoon. He’s a Tech Four, two stripes and a T, but stripes are hard when the whole thing’s barely 3 inches high.
The odd thing in his right hand is a post I used to support the model as it gets printed from the ground up. I can try moving it up or down his arm, but I can’t go too far or the model doesn’t print. Real miniatures print the arms, etc. as separate pieces and assemble them, and maybe that’s the way I should go, too.
The crystal ball is painted with an iridescent paint that I think worked out quite well, even though it’s more micro-glitter than true iridescence. I don’t know if there is an iridescent paint out there — the ones I tried looked odd on Hammer’s Slammers iridium tank hulls. But I had to try — I mean, what’s more iridescent than unpainted iridium?
