What we need:
- Piece of foam
- Old brush
- Black coat in spray
- Astronomican grey
- Tallarn flesh
- Brown ink(citadel)
- Brown ink(vallejo, used at the end)
- Thraka green
- Baal red
- Ogryn flesh
- Gryphonne sepia
- Camo green
- Devlan mud
- Badab black
- Scorched brown
- Bestial brown
- Dark flesh
Firstly I basecoated piece. I used spray Montana(for writers – graffiti spray) 2g colors. It gives facture. It doesn’t matter what you use for basecoat. I just tested my new spray.
I painted piece with base color – 2:1 mix of Astronomican Grey and Tallarn Flesh (no. 1)
From this step is needed old brush(see photo) to get final effect. I was painting form up to down(it’s important) in this and next steps. I used paints in order:(Remember to water down paint):
Brown ink : thraka green 2:1(no. 2), brown ink : thraka green 1:1(no. 3), thraka green(no. 4), thraka green not watered down(no. 5), baal red(no. 6), baal red not watered down(no. 7), ogryn flesh(no. 8), gryphonne sepia(no. 9), brown ink heavily watered down(no. 10).
I painted piece again with base color(heavier watered down), but leaving upper coat of paint(no. 11). Direction of lines is important!
I put layer of camo green leaving more pigment on down (no. 12). Direction of lines is important!
Again I used washes/inks like in step number 3, but heavier watered down. Now watered down I shaded armor with Devlan Mud (no.13, then with Badab Black (no. 14). Direction of lines is important!
I took piece of foam, then watered down Scorched Brown and dipped foam in Scorched Brown(no. 15). Then gently pressed on armor
I highlited rust with Bestial Brown leaving some Scorched Brown on edges
Final highlight with Dark Flesh leaving some Bestial brown(no. 17).
(Optional) Bottom edges of rust I highlighted with Camo Green using 00 brush(experience is needed here)(no. 18). At the end I shaded whole armor with watered down Brown Ink(vallejo) (no. 19). Unfortunately this step is almost invisible on photos ;/ .
I hope you like it. Sorry for my english. EMA!
