Miniature Monday - Yellow Kastelan Robot

The final Kastelan Robot, so far, this guy's look eluded me for quite a bit before I finally settled on something that was fun and a bit tongue-in-cheek. For this robo, I decided to paint him up with yellow armor, but I wasn't sure what to do for his accent color.

Finally I had the wise idea of making a Star Wars reference with him and gave him a red arm, like our boy C-3PO from the Force Awakens.

All this comes from his yellow eyes. It was the last head I had to do and I couldn't come up with anything that was interesting. Then I realized that C-3PO had yellow eyes and the path was set forth.

Originally, after I had decided on the C-3PO reference I was going to give him a silver leg, as he appeared in A New Hope. Then I thought about doing a silver leg and a red arm as a double reference, but finally settled on just the red a itself and I'm glad I did.

The whole point of this project was to have fun with the robot models and to make each interesting. I think that objective was completed successfully.

There's really not much more to say about this guy that hasn't been said about the other robots. I love having all 6 of them on the table. The uniqueness of each robot really makes them stand out on the table when compared to the other models in the army.

So, I think that's about it.

Until next time, you can catch me on Twitter and Instagram. Check out YouTube for the Let's Paint series and other videos.
