Hello and happy New year everyone!
So over the holiday I got some new MiG Weathering paint the brush able/ air brush paint , and some AK-Interactive weathering brushes. I got Dark Rust(A.MIG-041) medium rust(A.MIG-040) And light rust(A.MIG-039)
So I tried to recreate the 1950’s teal paint that all industrial Machines of that time seem to have. So I did a base coat of Thunderhawk Blue then Temple Guard blue, then using the AK weathering brush 576, lightly stipple the dark rust on first in random locations and near cracks or joints or edges. Next I use the medium rust and stipple around the dark rust trying to make a edge affect . Then a spattering of light rust just at the edges of were the rust meets the blue paint so it looks like newly formed rust that’s eating away at the existing paint. And finally i finish the rust look with GW Brown ink (Agrax Earthshade) but any brown ink would work to help take the brightness of the blue down and darken the rust a bit. . . . (Update you can see the difference of how bright the blue looks before I darken it with the brown ink , in photos 2 and 3 you can see I have painted the oil drums in the same blue )
I very happy with the results the brush works very well for laying down a random rust effects and can do oil streaking and water and grime stains very well. Also I feel the MiG rust paint works very well straight out of the bottle I used my wet pallet for all the paints I used on this GW tractor from the Sector Mechanicus Galvanic Servohaulers.
I’m very happy with the final results and can’t wait to finish painting the other pieces of the set like this.
I think it will make a perfect edition to my Necromunda and Killteam boards !
Thanks for coming by, See you in the Wasteland!
