Many people have gone with a fairly monochrome colour scheme, because the mini looks pretty uniform; wires, cables and shielding all over. Most monochrome colour schemes look great; some how mine looks plain and flat. I'll have to come back and tart him up a bit. I might shade the shielding on the top surface of the weapons (shoulder pads?) and ink the pine cone weapon.
I think this is the best OSL I've managed, but it is still a bit off. I think the green need to be brighter, but whiter looks odd and it's already 90% yellow and 10% green. I'll need to read a bit more.
I am a little disappointed with the figure. There is a lot of shading in the metallics (4 shades, from a dark gun metal to bright silver) and 0-3 layers of smoke ink. The blue is Tamiya weathering powder "Burnt Blue". There's a "Burnt Red", I might try this on the shoulders. To tie back to the other Strain, I have painted the weapon tentacle the zombie flesh colour. Not bad, but overall not what I hoped.
