So i'm still painting my Macharius Heavy tank (pictures in another post) but im unsure of what to do to the model to make it look like a tank - paint wise. Right now it has a dark grey base coat and ultramarines blue camo pattern on top, with some fortress gray additions to the camo on the way.
Basically im unsure of the techniques i should be using to make it look good. Sofar ive inked it, and i'm about to highlight it. But what other things should i do to the armor to make it look Games Day worthy?
I'll post some pics in a few days once i free up some space on the digital camera.
Thanks in advance.
I like to go over all my tanks wit a very gentle Boltgun metal DryBrush.
Just make sure the brush really is dry and the bristles seperated from each other.
You don't want to make a "ClogBrush" or anything like it. Dry.
Then give it a brown/black wash to pick details out and not getting the glossy Ink-effect.
do both the above - i.e. drybrush with a white or very light grey, and ink wash with dark ink (black or perhaps valljo smoke)
then consider scuff and scratch marks and mud. You can get special "mud effect aplicators" relatively cheaply nowerdays, I know Franksi found one
Everything you have been told is a lie!
So, as far as edges, everyone says Drybrush and not drawing the lines by hand?
