Ive been trying to get my weathering just right on three of my russes, ive done a normal (for me anyway) scheme russ with dirt weathering, but i was reading my panzer modelling masterclass and decided to go for a little bit of a challenge so here it is so far peoples comments please.
first tank in squadron
this is the rear shot of the hull (the turret still hasnt been started
this is a close up of the left sides weathering
this is the left side
this is the roght sides weathering
and finally the right side of the hull
i have done the second tank but il put that in the second post.
so what do people think needs doing to this as i really need some bullying to get this job done i started it so long ago but got sidetracked (pun not intended) by a lovely squad of conscripts.
Sorry for the grainy ness of the images they look loads better on my photobucket account. il give the link out to it if anyone is interested.
right these are the pics of the second tank. i think i went a little too heavy on the weathering but im not sure...
Again sorry bout the images.
for starters the turret shot
next we have a rear left shot...
then a rear left close up...
then a rear shot..
and finally a front right shot
these images are somewhat darker but you get the idea. This tank has "snow" on it that I made to look like slush.
Looking good. Really good.
I love the wearing, it (nearly) always makes a model pop, like I think yours have.
The winter idea is great it works so well on guards as they are one of the few armies that really are being bothered by the cold. SpaceMarines and other fancy soldiers don't really care about it but Guards are still primitive enough to let it get to them.
One thought I got when watching your tank is that some parts of it should be kept un-iced. Things that becomes warm when the tank is running. Like the exhaust-pipes from the engine. Maybe the barrels of the guns. You could even use gloss varnish to make it look like if the snow that used to be upon those parts has just melted and become water.
Keep the pics coming, I'm looking forward on seeing more of them.
