I'm going to Adepticon in April, and my team is bringing a Nurgle Themed army, 1 Blood Angels Army, 1 CSM army, 1 Space Wolves army, and 1 Renegade Guard Army.
I'm building the Guard Army.
Here are some Pics, I'll comment as I go.
Lets start with the best, Tanks:
The army, all its tanky Glory (Minus the CSM piece).
Rusty primed tanks, the ones on the right are varnished. we used Krylon Camo Brown spray to prime, then did a scorched brown/blazing orange mix airbrushed on, with splotches of blazing orange.
2x Chimera, 1x Manticore (Hellcannon) varnished and ready for the next step.
2x Vendetta varnished, hanging dry on the antlers of an elk...
Blood Angles Tanks
Space Wolves Tanks
Then we applied a thick coating of hairspray, added some salt for masking, let it dry for like an hour, and applied our colours with an airbrush. Space wolves got some cathacan green, Blood angles something between vermin brown and bubonic brown, Guard started with Graveyard Earth and went through Kommando Khaki and Bleached bone. We did a perspective highlight with bleached bone mixed with the base colour on each set.
Airbrushed Guard Tanks
Airbrushed Blood Angels
That was all Sunday.
Yesterday I unpack my Guard and begin the weathering, man it takes a while to do!
I think it may be a bit overdone on the guard tanks, and we'll definitely do a little less on the marine tanks.
Its all good, cause nurgle loves rot.
Keep in mind, this is just step 1 in the weathering process, I've just taken warm water and an old drybrush and scraped off some paint. we may have overdone the salt, it leaves big bare patches, near the treads specifically.
More to come as I proceed through the rest of the tanks!
Next Step is weathering the other 2 tanks and 2 vendettas o_O...
Then I'll be applying highlights to the weathering, and after that I was planning on just using the GW washes, never used Oil Washes...
I intend to Varnish them once more after the highlight step.
Then painting large scale graffiti chaos symbols on the tanks...
Beautiful work! i'm about to start painting a vendetta so i'm trying to brush up (no pun intended) on techniques, so thanks!
