Last week I finally got my hands on the last part needed to complete my decimator build, now given that the weather here isn't very consistent I started spraying at the moment I got.
Hopefully with this log I can give some good examples on how to paint an iron warriors vehicle.
I'm not gonna bother with pictures of the tank in it's undercoated and basecoated state as these aren't needed for we all know what 2 colours go first in this case.
1. undercoat of chaos black
2. basecoat of boltgun metal
3. coat of black ink
Right now the tank will look very dark, almost to the point of beeing black but this is okay there's more layer of brighter colours to follow which will be added asap once my camera is recharged.
GO! I'll race you cos that is frigging awesome, I'm always jealous of baneblades, but I know if I bought one I'd feel slightly ashamed I spent that much on one tank.
It's my own build, no FW kit for this beast.
Update time, this time I added 2 colours to the tank.
1. drybrush with chainmail
2. highlight with mithrill silver
This makes the tank very bright at some spots while at others it's still dark, the contrast between these 2 will be softened in the next stage when the tank get's a wash with badab black.
That looks like it is off to a good start. It is good to see the nd result of this model. I have to get a Baneblade and do it up some way. I think that you should consider that this tank is probably much bigger that your normal Iron warriors tanks. Because of that it may require some more attention aside from just being bigger and taking more time. More details and attention to small areas of rust for example. I have found on my Gargantuan Tyranids they need a different treatment from even the biggest of my normal ones because of their bigher areas. Keep this up, it looks good.
That's a great looking tank.
Some very well thought out conversions, I particularly like the use of chains.
Is that part of a Cities of Death sprue, that you used to cover the Mechanicus Shrine on the back?
2 small parts from the manufactorium.
Thanks for the advice Leech, I'll see f I can get my hands on some MiG pigments.
