I spent the day assembling/painting my first two war-walkers. I'm not overly thrilled with the results. First off, I don't much like the kits. I spent some time trimming the fat to make them more resemble 2nd edition walkers. I trimmed some fins and protrusions. I assembled the damn wing-armour wrong and then had no choice but to do them both the same way (already glued one wrong!).
I dipped the driver and tried dipping the white parts which worked horribly. Stripped and repainted them and then left the driver (who now clashes a bit with the non-dipped stuff). I may go and try to touch up the driver with some white paint.
I dislike the looks of this new war walker more than I thought but now that I have them painted and built I'll run them. The only thing I'd dislike more...is working with multi-part metal kits (such as the old war walker). If I get around to re-doing my war walkers I'll sell these off on ebay.
