Zentraedi Battle Pod

"Run, puny Micronians"
I've added an N-scale pedestrian to the base.

After starting out by painting up Rick Hunter’s Valkyrie, it was time to add some bad guys to the collection. Here is a few pictures of the first Zentraedi battle pod I’ve finished.

The standard Zentradi Regult Battle Pod.

The Palladium plastic sprues are quite easy to work with if you’ve got previous experience with assembling models, and the Regult Battle Pod sprue kit offers a nice variety of poses, from running, standing or swooping/flying.

As I’m building a Regult Recon Squad for the Robotech RPG Tactics rules, I need a further 5 Regults, a Quel-Regult and a Glaug leader to complete the unit. These are now on the painting desk. 

Variations of the battle pod.
Standard, recon and artillery.

In other words, the “Micronians” are in for it!
Thanks for stopping by, all comments are welcome.


  1. Very nice indeed! Do you mind sharing you recipe for painting white?

  2. Thanks Jonas - sure I'm using a GW palette for this project:
    Base color is Celestra Grey. Then midtone with Ulthuan Grey and finally highlighting/edge tracing with Ceramite White.

    1. Thanks, much appreciated! Have tucked that away for when/if I do some sci-fi stuff in the future.

  3. Very cool! I'll definitely be adding this to my blogroll. Looking forward more of your fantastic models. Who knows what next year brings, but for now I'll have to enjoy Robotech through you. :-)
