Pitbull gear in Peace Officer Corps paint scheme

Another quick post with a model I’ve finished painting this evening. The Pitbull is a cheap and cheerful light trooper gear made by Paxton Arms of the Peace River city state in the Heavy Gear setting. It’s used by many groups, but is most famously deployed by the Peace Officer Corps of Peace River, who are basically a highly militarised police force.

I started painting this ages ago and since I’ve recently been trying to finish up models I’d started painting then stopped, it was an obvious choice. The sculpt for this one was a bit gnarly so I didn’t exactly go all out – I just wanted it to look decent, which I think I accomplished.

More pictures after the jump.
