I'm in a full on figure painting frenzy at the moment, so I decided to have a go at this one, it's been on a shelf assembled but not painted, for a long time.
I'm not really sure how I came by it, I think it may have belonged to my son as he was into the game a few years ago, I really haven't a clue regarding these type of figures soI have had a Google and I came across a picture of a painted one and I'm ashamed to say that I will be totally ripping off the paint scheme lol !

Here it is all under coated in White

The figure on the back of the killer budgie is tiny but full of nice detail

I'm used to painting wings, but they don't usually have feathers !
The wings are a push fit so at least I will be able remove them for painting

This is the shortlist for the colours I'm going to use for the "cat" part of the beastie

Main body and budgie feet sprayed with a mix of the sand shades and a drop of white

Then I went back over the belly with white

I'm still using my old "el Cheapo" airbrush as I don't want to dirty the new cheapo one lol ! It can still do a pretty tight spray pattern though

It's packed with detail Mike, and I'm well out of my comfort zone now but I'm keeping in mind what you said, and treating it as just another lump of plastic that needs colour, fingers crossed it turns out ok.
If not it will at least be a good learning experience and I can always strip it and start again

I mixed up an orange shade and sprayed it heavy into the recesses of the muscles, I'm using gunze yellow and Tamiya flat red, but the Gunze is semigloss so it's all a bit shiny at the moment

This was a pain in the neck and I struggled to get the look I was after

Over this a coat of clear orange

I wasn't sure if the stripes should go right under the body so I stopped here

I felt that my orange preshade was too orange, so I brushed some Vallejo umber wash over it and gave it a matt coat to unify everything

I'm using the White background as the camera was showing everything too red without it.
The chicken legs got a wash too

I really wasn't sure how to tackle the feathers, in the end I decided to give them an umber wash to darken the recesses between them and then I will be able to over paint them

I really like the sense of movement that this figure has
20150402_144803 by brundledonk, on Flickr
And this is where I'm at, I have given the feathered areas a couple of heavy coats of wash, next I think I will start highlighting them
