WIP: Deimos/Lucius Vindicator (Part Four)
Right, after some quality time at home, it's time to get back to painting. On my travels, I picked up some new weathering products, AK Interactive's Dark Streaking Grime, and Africa Dust Effects. I'll produce a more in-depth review in the near future, but for now here are some of the results.
I want this tank to be heavily weathered. The way I see it is the daemon that has possessed it will not allow others (baring the trusted Warpsmith) near it for repairs; perhaps it sees its battle damage as scars of honour and as a testament to its strength. Therefore, I plan to add a lot of grime and rust.
This is the back of the tank where I've been going to town with my AK products. So far it's just got a bit of the Dark Grime and some Rust Streaks. Despite the Dark Grime being made for green tanks, it seems to work very well on my blue vehicles. I now have the urge to go back to other vehicles and add some of this.
I've also been working on the gold, and some runes. The current gold layer is the usual Gehenna Gold.
The Runes are being painted mainly around to the chains, to suggest powerful binding rituals. When complete, they will be painted with a fierce glow. The technique I'm using is this one.
That's all for now, but keep up with current projects on Facebook and Twitter.
