MCP – Omega Red Painting Guide

Welcome to my latest painting guide! Omega Red hits the painting table. A fairly chunky model with some cool but very flexible tentacles.


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!
