Looks great. All the wear and tear really fit a CC Dread.

Lol SJM, I was literally just reading through your blog and thinking how nice YOUR rust looks! :-) like really just now!

the way I do this style of weathering is with a few simple steps.

prime entire model in metal army painter primer.

Then wash with Agrax, then nuln oil, then a watered down orange, then highlight edges and scratches using mithril or a bright silver, then I wash again with a couple more goes of Agrax and Nuln oil or maybe even a little sepia for some variation and just randomly apply scratches and edging in silver as I go! orange around the rivets etc and they're done

I'll have to give that a go when I move on to something more metallic, my models so far seem to be mostly fur and skin!

Really looks good, back of Ghazz power claw in particular.

Thanks dude! I appreciate it :-) I found painting the scratches and chips in between the washes makes it look deeper and more worn, plus if you want an edge on a blade you just leave it pure silver, or if you want more rusty then you add more orange wash, it's really forgiving!

What is this heresy of a sidetracked Damo!? i'll tell ya what it is, it's a Damo who's been reading Death of Antagonis and wanted to use his new metal technique to see if it can paint a metallic looking black weathered armour reminiscent of how I see the Black Dragons space marines I am pretty pleased with how they look too! excuse the actual models as they were rescued from my bits so there may be a line or two! but overall they're black, weathered and look dead 'ard! the bare head was an experiment in face painting as they are described in the book with a grey saurian looking skin if affected by the gene curse.

I think a squad is in order all together they'd look pretty good I think! not to mention they're fast to paint! real FAST! don't fret it's still Green 2015 but I had to delve into seeing if I could bring them to life........ I might make a Volos character.......

Yeah, I agree , the weathering works on SM too !
Not sure about the skin tone , they look ill ! Maybe it's the camera or maybe a wash of something is needed ??? Haven't read the book so probably entirely wrong !

I think they look fantastic damo... though the flesh is a bit pallid. (though it's not like there's none of THAT in the Imperium) However the flesh tone does match the feel of the rest of the paint job very well.

Thanks guys, the skin tone in the book is mentioned as grey on some brothers and their visage turns very reptilian/dragon with canines lengthened etc. so I went for a grey skin on one just to see :-) so fluff wise it works, other brothers will have normal skin and other more changed ones will have chaos-esque grey dragon skin!

Well, it's been a little while since I've managed to decently update you on my progress with the Greenskins! I shall make amends today and drown you in a glut of images followed by questions and more images!

what did I finish? I finished my 'Kan Wall' ....well, I finished 3 Kans and a Dread twas a simple technique but is something a little different than normal and while it looks simple overall if you really look closely at each model, the scratches and dents and weathering tells a story and is quite intricate I added oil along the pistons from 'ard coat and black drawing ink and gore with black ink & red ink mixed and a little 'ard coat

lots of pics sorry but you know me! I just can't decide











and the big boy! he's cool and as they say! 'Dead Killy'












Now for the next thing I received from Gitsplitta a few choice heads for my Bulldozer of Blackstone version of Ghazkhul Thrakka and they are amazingly cool and so full of awesome character I simply cannot decide which one suits my warlord and my theme the best? so I ask you all which one looks right at home? I have 2 which I prefer but I'll get to them in a minute!

head #1 I like this one as he looks sneaky and cunning and the goggles are kind of Kommando-ish

head#2 deranged and worn but not as much feeling?

head #3 I think this one is good with the jaw plate tying in with the Mega Armor fits nicely!

head#4 Crazy deranged head from Gits Cyborks! fits size wise well and the movement of the model matches but there's not enough skin shown to make a focal point.

head #5also a good tie in with the armor but isn't quite as menacing


O.k have at it! hope you like them and I'll be warlording it up soon!

Klankies look amazing.

I am torn between 4 and 5. Love how 4 seems to flow with the model.

#4 is awesome, would love to see you go with that one. Regarding the focal point, would that gaping mouth not help ?

Awesome as always.

But where can I find those heads?

Edit: Oh, I forget to vote... Number 4 looks the best.

Oooooh so much Orky goodness!
First off, Im still in love with your metals. It really has that industrial used feeling to it. The rust is perfect and the scratches.... ugh! Really REALLY great work!!


Now the head... Number 4. Absolutely 4. My favorite head of the lot.
I think you could easily make the skin a focal point still... Just paint it a level or two brighter or more intense than normal.

Really looking forward to Ghaz getting a head! (hur, get it? a-head... hurrrr.... Ill go home now...)

Cool, thanks guys! looks like you think I should use head #2!....No?.......#1?

:-) well, I'm actually going to use all of them for the heads of BB's Bodyguard of Mega armoured Nobz! bur for the man himself I implore you to gaze upon #3 again and imagine it painted and weathered up ;-) That's the one I'm gonna use because it's not too over the top crazy, I have a feeling my Kommando themed force is more Kunning and sneaky than crazy and nutty! so a face with a touch of thought behind it is there! his mates on the other hand can be as over the top as he hurls them forward into the enemy!

I'm glad you also like the Kans and Dread and weathering :-) I was worried they weren't flashy enough painted!

Well I was kind of right as my first idea was to use 3 Yes 3 so I will take it as a win anyway

I see your point to be a little refined with the Boss and have the maniacs to do his bidding

Agreed! Not to mention the colors you'll get from inside the mouth AND you can get creative with the metal parts around the jaw and head. Figure out how to paint the metal, metal, but in a different manner from the rest of the metal on the body.

That is such a true statement! when I get on a certain technique or colour I kind of go a little over the top trying to see where it looks good lol!
