Heavy Gear Blitz – Utopian painting

Hello!

I’ve just finished off painting my second full combat group of Utopians for Heavy Gear Blitz – a Fire Support squad. As with all my models their various weapon choices are magnetised so I can field whichever variants I want, but I’ve only painted the one set of weapons for now.
