MCP – Guardians of the Galaxy Commission

Another batch of Guardians and my 3rd Rocket and Groot!

It makes life a little bit sweeter when they’re to be painted the same as I’ve done before, as that means I have guides…

I really enjoyed every one, again. MCP models are so crisp, characterful and dynamic, they offer a really enjoyable paint no matter if you’ve painted them before.

Take a look at more pictures of this commission below, and if you would like me to paint some of your models get in touch.

MCP – Construction Site Painting Guide Part 3 – Shack

Welcome to my latest painting guide! Today I’m covering the shack from the Construction Site terrain pack.


You can help me do more!

I make these guides for everyone to learn to paint, but they do cost money, time and resources. If you enjoyed this guide, you can donate £1-3 to help me make more!

Donate via Ko-Fi Donate via PayPal


Prep: Fully build the shack and undercoat black.

A note on drybrushing: When covering larger areas, especially on terrain, I prefer to use drybrushing. This technique requires you to add a light amount of paint to the brush and then remove most of it. Lightly brushing over some kitchen roll until only a small amount of chalky paint is left. When brushed over a model this hits the hard edges but can also be used to build up in layers to create a gradation in colour.

A specific drybrush helps greatly, especially on larger models. Something like this or this.
