Terrain is everything - Thermic Plasma Conduits - Rusty yellow

Afternoon #WarHamFam and #WarhammerCommunity I've been #PaintingWarhammer on my Thermic Plasma Conduits. Next up Colvin & Co. Burnt Sienna stippled and drybrushed on. 

I mean, when this stuff dries it feels like rust. 

I may have to try this as a final coat in future, rather than an intermediate application. The things is, rust is so diverse there's now reason it can't be different in the same setting.

Sure, you want consistency on the tabletop and the same techniques tie everything together. I love that, I really do, but I'm also about experimenting.

Taking those opportunities to challenge how I do things and explore different ways [like the variety in my Nurgle Blood Bowl team]. And in real life things do look different and incongruous. You don't always get colours that match or compliment each other sometimes they clash and look odd. 

I'll continue to play with that even if I know the safer option might be aesthetically more pleasing to the eye.

That said, the yellow makes them look very different.

Sponged on Colvin & Co. Gamboge as I did with my Preceptor Weapons.

Kept the rust showing through in places.

Added Valejo Game Effects Dry Rust to all the pipeworks and fans.

Also on the control unit to help break things up a bit.

I knew jumping onto these so soon after the Haemotrope Reactor would pay dividends .All the same techniques, just a few little details I'll need to pick out next, more highlights and ways to balance the weathering and rust effects.
