Slayer and Reaper done

Howdy ppl,

I never got the chans to post this guy this Friday as i was a bit stress fixing last min stuff for school and here at home. I got to play the reaper one time on the tournament this Saturday but i know now that the Egaspy list was the way to go. But it´s no bigy to loose for me if you don´t loose you can´t get any better.

The end result was a lot better then I was hoping for, did one sloppy miss on him and that is the Slayer arms, the tubs in the back did not get any metal paint. But I will be fixing that some other day, now i just need to get this army in to shape.

And now it is time to show of some pic´s




Enjoy and leave me a comment on what you think ^^

  1. i think those two guys looks fabulous and the make my a bit jealous since I'm experimenting with a rust-heavy color scheme myself.

    May I ask what kind of base color you used before you started the weathering process with the rust pigments? Finding a base color that doesn't conflict with both the red-orange rust and the necrotite green gives me a bit of a headache. Jeez!

  2. Yes u may ask that np man.

    (this part is done whit Airbrush)
    I start out by giving the thing a cryx green primer then i make a 50/50 mix of cryx base and cryx highlight I then spray in on in a 50 degrees angel. when that is done I sprat some black wash on some areas where i need to tone down.

    when that is done I paint the metal give them black wash and give it some love to bring the colors back up.

    then I dab on the rust pigment where i want it and when it is dry i do some clean up whit the brush where there is a lot or to litel pigments.

    hope that helps.

  3. Thx, that helps quite a bit.

    The airbrush part won't be a problem, since I'm a happy owner of a good dual action gun. That 50° spray (know it as "zenithal highlight") was something I had in mind too.

    Interesting that your approach is more or less the reversed order of what I've tried so far. My test-model approach (sacrificed some plastic spoons and a crappy ww2 tank) was to prime the whole model with a red-brown primer, then sponge on some different rust shades and then use either the salt&hairspray technique or some liquid mask. Then I applied the base colors in the same way you did before I removed the salt/liquid mask, thus creating a chipping effect.

    Guess I need to sacrifice two more models (thanks god/barter-town I do have some old&obsolete metal chickens) and compare both techniques. Looks like your approach should beat mine in terms of time/model.

    How much time did you spend on that jack (from priming to the final layer of varnish)?

    Cheers, Karnstein
