This took less than 24 hours start to finish and I love it to bits. I may regret not making the drum magnetic so I can swap it from model to model. It might be better to have it on a hero, or some other more pivotal or durable model, but it looked so cool. I love how the drum came out.
The simplicity of how I do these is so appealing, I wish I could be just as quick on other armies, maybe I'll be that way with my Death Guard...
It had to be finished for a game the following night, it was worth the effort as he did get to speed them up in at least one game. However, he speeds them up regardless, so if something does need to charge that's within 12" I can't sound the drums.
The drumskin though! A blob of Burnt Umber art acrylic allowed the varied texture and opacity. Then a few stray scuffs with bonewhite and he was done.
