Just a quick paintjob I did for a friend for his birthday. There's some blue hues to some of the metallic silver paint, but it's really hard to see with this lighting setup. I need to get my white levels better balanced. :/

Can I ask how you removed the piece that was originally covering the hammer at the back?

*nods* Should be able to get a hold of those! I guess you just patch up any holes with something?
Hypercats's avatar
HypercatsProfessional Artisan Crafter
Yeah, or you can just leave them. They're not really holes. You'll see when you cut the bits off.

thats cool but is that the settler pistol from rage?
Hypercats's avatar
HypercatsProfessional Artisan Crafter
No, but that settler pistol is pretty cool looking. I was just going for some dark metallic colors and dark woodgrain.

shurely different to my postapocalyptic Version, but pretty cool. I love this steampunk-style. :-)

Yeah I managed to pick up a couple of these and just wanted to see what it looked like with a quick paintjob. It's a fun shape and I'll probably do some more higher detailed paintjobs on them later.

Looks great reminds me of hellboys gun

Yeah it's a good chunky shape for a revolver. You could probably paint one in a flat/matte black with silver highlight and use it for Hellboy cosplay.

Thanks! I have tutorials if you ever want to try it yourself.

would love to see them! I was even looking around for one of these guns, looks like they don't sell them anymore.

Yeah, the Lanard X8's been out of production for a while now. If you're lucky, you can find them on Amazon for $25, but that's a bit steep for me considering I saw them as low as $3.99 when they were in stores.

Ahh, I should have recolonized the name. I remember watching this awhile back, good tutorial.

Thanks, it was my first video, and I know it rambles, so I plan on making a much shorter version soon. I've got the process down to about 2 hours tops now.
