I'm not sure if this is the corect section to post this so I'll just take a shot at it. I want to make some slimy, swampy looking sections on m DeathGuard bases. I don't want this to bee the whole bas and sometimes I just want it to look like the power armor is leaking disease. Does anyone have any ideas that would help me?
What I have done was to use Water Effects and the color I wanted underneath and then gloss varnish... the more gloss varnish the more slimer the look...
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me
I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...
I have to agree water effects would look great for a puss filled rotting nurgle base, it's also great if you want to get a waxed type look.
If you dont want to shell out the $25 US for a bottle of water effects you may be able to find some at the local hobby lobby or modeling supply store i.e. woodland scenics (i think thats the brand name) that is slightly less expensive.
you can get a cool sludge effect if you mix varnish, green ink and model railroad flock. slimy enough for you?
That is not dead which may eternal lie,
for in strange aeons even death may die.
if you want a drippy look on armour or of rocky bases then some classic pva glue is for you. the more water you mix with it the more it runs down the base. Just add some color to it and lightly brush some on. I have seen this work out very well on cliff edges and running down bloody walls.
The Great Plague meets The Devourer of The Galaxy. What does that make us?
I shall not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will allow it to pass over and through me. And when the fear has passed I will turn the inner eye to see its path. There will be nothing. Only I will remain.
Oddly this is the third time in a day or two Im posting on thsi subject, but yeah water effects is great but expensive and not somethingI would suggest using it on models. To messy and you might not get the effects your want. Instead use a glossy finish and a small brush to make the shiny areas you want. If your feeling really daring then you could also tinting it with green but remeber the colors of the base will show through and add to the finish.
Hey. I know this is a really odd technique and I only discovered it be chance, but try dripping superglue onto PVA (white glue) and let it dry. You get a really nasty pockmarked mould type effect.
