MCP – Captain America & War Machine Painting Guide


Welcome to my latest painting guide! Today I’m tackling the the amazing Captain America & War Machine set.
This obviously has a few similarities with the Steve Rogers Captain America, so check out that guide for some close ups of how to paint the shield.

I need your support. Because my guides takes time and supplies to do, any support you can offer would mean the world to me. A supportive message in the comments is enough, but if you have the means why not send me a gift on Ko-Fi or PayPal. Thank you!
