PBR: taking a dip

A small update...
The large number of figures to paint is a daunting task (I can't imagine sitting through the whole thing in one go). The strategy is to paint the base colors in assembly line fashion. But then focus on a couple of figures at a time for shading, highlighting and details.
Here's the first two taking a dip:
As you can see, I've only poured the resin halfway through. Tests show the resin doesn't attack the paint, but I was afraid that it might generate too much heat and melt the plastic. Better safe than sorry.

PBR painted

After a marathon weekend session of weathering, here are some results. Painting was finished the weekend before. As usual I airbrushed Tamiya acrylics as the overall basecoat with some pre-shading. The red bottom was also Tamiya acrylic.
This weekend is all about weathering.
