Sector Mechanicus Galvanic Servohaulers - The little one WiP

Afternoon #warmongers I've been #paintingwarhammer the littlest Galvanic Servohauler. You may recall I wanted all these elements from some lucky acquisitions of Warhammer Conquest to be weathered and rusty. I thought I'd shared some WiP pics but this appear to be it, from prime to three quarters done! I started with all sorts of browns and orange as a base and then just sponged on some yellow for the paint. Instead of a reductive technique - removing the yellow through salt, hairspray or chipping medium I tried the additive technique. It seemed easiest to me and although it's far from perfect I'm getting to a point where I'm happy


The red canister was a last minute choice, so I still have to do a number of things to weather it in and make it not look like the afterthought it really is. That said, it should match up with my Genestealer Cult Sentinels which is half the reason for the colour choice, but also if I go down the yellow route with my Adeptus Mechanicus elements they'll fit with them too.

But it's yellow, my favorite colour, and it looks awesome on Red Planet BASE! So I really don't need any other reasons than that.

  1. Looks excellent Dave the yellow weathering has worked really well imo.

    1. Cheers, I could probably keep going on this, just need to settle on some of the lense colours so I can box it off. The plan was to do the other the same but a small part of me is thinking other colours...

    1. Like Wall-ee. Pretty cool, it'll look nice with some of my future containers, the other servo-haulers and the sector mechanicus terrain which will be done in the same way...
