Part of the CSO Diorama at GenCon 2012 the Eyleuka was heavily modified to represent a custom variant fitting the theme of Solaris 7. This is probably one of the most ambitious mods I have done so far. Maybe it doesn’t look very spectacular, but the main work involved removing a hole side torso which I replaced with an underslung heavy laser. Overall I am quite happy with the result.
The color scheme is that of a new Solaris stable, created specifically for the diorama – Zhan Youshi Stables. I won’t give you more details about the stable at this point, only that it has been canonized and I hope to see some of the background I have written appear in one form or another at some time *crosses fingers*. For the paint scheme I knew I wanted to do something involving teal or turquoise. As accent color I chose a light tan as it is fairly neutral and would let me experiment with a few effects without making the mini to busy or too colorful.
BattleTech is 6mm (1:285) scale.
