My first Aura Battler Dunbine kit, the awesome Zwarth - The Black Knight, is already assembled and basecoated in black. You can find a pic of it here :
This model is huge : 21 cm high, 20 cm long without tail, wings, shield and weapon. The wings and shield will be painted separately and assembled after. I'll go for the traditionnal black scheme with flesh parts in orange/red/yellow. this should be done quite fast.
