I finished up this bad boy the other week, but hadn’t gotten around to posting it until now.
Here it is next to its brother…
If you’re curious about the arrows you can find out how I did them here. Thanks for stopping. Cheers!
Wow, oni, sexxxy! I've gotten my Rhinos about that dark overall (http://ondeathswings.blogspot.com/search/label/Painting), but I don't know about that highlighting. I mean I love it, but I don't know how I could do that with my skills. Do you have any articles on how you get those thin highlights or a video showing it off? Oh, and what kind of varnish or hard coat do you cover your tanks in?
@ SynnerG - Thanks for the comment. I'm sorry to say that I do not have any videos. I have a post that describes the overall technique, but applied to a different model (Imperial Bastion) and then a comment reply to that post that describes it a bit more in detail.Post can be found here - http://pitoftheoni.blogspot.com/2009/07/imperial-bastion-stage-by-stage.html...and if you scroll down a bit you'll see my long comment where I go into detail about my drybrushing technique.
Oh... as for the varnish. None of my models or scenery are varnished as I haven't found one that is 100% reliable.Here's a link to probably the most horrifying varnishing disaster to ever come to this hobby.http://pitoftheoni.blogspot.com/2009/08/when-good-models-go-bad.html
Ah thanks for the links! I just assumed a varnish was used by the glossy look on some of the tank. Is that maybe from like a heavy dark wash you added last?
Nah, that's just some odd reflection from the light source. I don't use a light-box or anything to difuse glare.
Hmmmm I love your red paintjob!!Very good work and very good blog.
Hello there!It's very nice to see another Genesis Chapter Battle Brother in the Warp... I mean on Blogspot. Our chapter is definately very rare.
