However, I looked at the dried version this morning and it's not quite so gross and distressed. I'll be adding some Martian Ironearth and perhaps some Valejo Red Oxide texture in places to make it a little less plastic model and a bit more futuristic Grim Dark fortification. I'll then be adding Hunter Green. I also thought while I was at it I'd also throw in a Defence line and Comms Relay too!
I currently have a real sense of hobby momentum, which is only hampered by the lack of time and setbacks that are slowing progress. I really want to get a number of projects done so I can start playtesting the Dark Angels list I have in mind for Blog Wars X.
But this is still great progress and even though it's a second Bastion and defence line and not really on my new Hobby Season list the progress, even if it was thwarted on the first one was so quick I think I can chuck these into the mix without delaying other things too much. Even if I can rectify Bastion 1 and postpone completion of these then the effort so far won't be wasted as it'll be a head start for when I do get chance to complete it, like those 20 genestealers waiting to have their bases painted...
Love the gritty mucked up look. But everyone knows I'm a total sucker for weathering.ReplyDelete
Rest assured it will look nothing like this at the end, it'll all be covered up *sad face*, sorry Grey.Delete
I think the weathering on this one works really well. It will be interesting to see both bastions side by side when completed, to see the different effectsReplyDelete
Sorry NafNaf, it'll be painted the same as the other one - DA green, I had thought about one being green and one Ferron Red, but given I needed a spare in case the first one failed I automatically thought to have it green too.Delete
It would have been nice to have this as a derelict but when the shadow/grime wash dried it didn't look half as good as this so it was better off Co wring it up anyway.
