Haha yeah nerd thats a washer and a dryer. Though with 3 brothers, a second washer isn't too farfetched! xD


Bommas continue, mostly with priming the remaining bitz (lots of bombs!). Much of the weathering was waiting on getting new needles/tips for my airbrush, which have just arrived, in fact.

I got on a huge assembly kick, and put a good bit of work into assembling the Titan. You know, for a kit with rather limited directions included, it goes together rather nice and easily!



Feet and legs are ready to get pins.... soon as I figure out where to buy em from!

Nice building work.. you didnt put the war hound in the wash did you? If so add bleach. It will suck the chaos right out of it.. as it purges the unclean.

@nerd: Thanks! And I definitely will do. I rigged up the legs with pins today and daaaaaamn its tall!! (Pictures later)

@cormade: In the washer? Well yeah! How else could I get them so sparkly clean! Plus it let me add softener, so the warhound is now huggably soft!



So I've had a frustrating day... First it was the normal stuff, like family and the airbrush compressor spitting water (though after using it for a LONG time!).
Then I tried weathering the planes. And oh boy is it driving me crazy.


Burn/exhaust marks? Easy.




Verdigris on copper/brass parts? Ditto.




Chipping? Oh HELL no...




It kicked my ass in every sense of the word. So I'm relatively inexperienced in the ways of sponge chipping, but with a number of tutorials and what little experience I had, I thought it'd be -much- easier than it turned out to be. I kept trying to fix mistakes here and there, be it a blob of paint or a smudge, and ended up with what you see above.
The objective was to heavily weather the leading edges, because of course Da Burninator should be well known for flying fast and low (hitting the odd tree branch or stormboy along the way). So I put a bit more than what I normally would. Problem is, I think parts are overdone... Though that might be me staring at it for too long and frustrations taking hold. Whatever the case, the other two planes aren't getting anywhere -near- this amount of chipping. it'll be much more controlled and sparse.

What do you guys think? I know its not perfect, but did I at least manage to save it?



In slightly less aggravating news, Jaska got a number of details, including a badge for the Ice Angel Campaign. I ended up blending the two chapters' heraldries together, and I think it looks alright. A bigger one would have been better, but what can ya do on a knee?

I think it looks ok on the tail fin, but the wing still looks a bit off. Maybe needs to be filled in with solid chunks of silver? Dunno, I'd ask the Gitmista.

I think its cool Ramos. I don't know if its the pictures or not but the chipping could almost be a bit darker.

As for Jaska 2.0. The warp turtle ice angel badge is cool. I'll have to see how I can fit that into my fluff.

Lookin good! Yellow is a hard color to pull off but you make it look easy! The chipping looks really accurate. I work on aircraft and the areas you hit are the areas most prone to chipping. Also areas forward of guns.

Don't stress too much dude! perhaps try using a different sized sponge applicator to re apply some smaller areas of yellow? and then some brighter silver as fresh chips?

It is REALLY EASY to overdo chipping and rust with a sponge. Most of the ork vehicles I've done this on look like they've been through a shredder (and a rusty one at that). I've been working very hard to scale my sponge work back to a more sane level. "Less is more" clearly applies to any type of sponge work, be it chipping or rusting.

One question: Exactly how is the leading edge of the tail section getting chipped? Is he flying under trees??

I like nerdy's suggestion about sponging on a little yellow to break up the solid metal areas... or perhaps you could chip on a little brownish/orange in the most scraped-bare areas to simulate rust? That would break up the silver patches nicely. Just use a delicate touch. You might also consider a different sponge. I picked up some sea sponges from a craft store and they work nicely because the pores and much more irregular giving a more random pattern. If I do use regular foam, I use a tweezers to tear chunks out of the surface so its less regular.

Once you hit something it leaves a debris cloud that can fly into most any where/thing!

I like the chipping. I don't expect the Orks to be anything but banged up!

I do my weathering by sponging on black first and then painting inside with Vallejo Air Gun Metallic so it has more of a 3D effect, looks like this

Well thanks guys.... at least its not a total loss.

@nerd: The pics dont show it too well, but I did actually do the lighter color of metal idea. The chips are Adeptus Battlegray, Boltgun Metal, then finally Mythril Silver.
Bits of yellow, or even as gits suggested, rust, might get it to look a bit better.

@Gits: A sea sponge would be far better than what Im using at the moment. The nightmare began when I grabbed foam that I had cut out of a GW figure case. I knew it was pretty even bubbled foam, but figured it was close enough to the pluck foam and blister foam I had used before (chalk one up for me being an idiot). To start fixing it, I then moved to a scrubbing sponge, which had more variety in its cell sizes. It helped, but by then the damage was done.
I have since switched back to the pluck foam I normally use, and hopefully this'll give me more randomness and better appearance.

As far as the leading edge of the tail goes, I figured that nearly every leading edge would be chipped away, given the reckless piloting skills of orks. (flying under trees isnt too farfetched )

@GX: Thats a really nice pod. The process seems solid too... Might darken up the weathering nicely without overpowering it. i think im going to try that.


Well, with your help, guys, I think I know where to go from here. Hopefully after fixing the one bomma, the rest will be cake!

I like it beat up. I agree it should be a bit varied in darkness buy not as dark as GiraffeX Drop pod. It doesn't need a new paint job it need Bondo!

Alrighty. Round 2 went a bit better, and I REALLY scaled back the chipping. Im honestly too terrified of another fiasco to go too much further. I need a ton more practice at this technique.... ill never understand how some people do it though. The chipping effects I've seen are amazing (even the GW one looks awesome!)


So I dinged up the control surfaces and leading edges of the second jet. I took the advice here and kept it sparing and made the initial bit much darker (but not black!)



Don;t know if I want to go any further with it (same maybe a bit more on the tail control surfaces). They're still gonna get a bit of rusting powder on them, so the plain flat areas will be broken up with splotches of rust.

SL: Titan will be getting a Plasma Blastgun and Laser Destructor.

I think (based on what I can see from my phone) that you've got a much more realistic balance there. Nicely done.

And as Ramos said, I got the Turbo Distructor and the Plasma Blastgun. It is a sniper Titan, both guns have 96" range.

Second attempt is much nicer Ramos! the first is still good, keeping in mind that they are ORKS! they wouldn't give a hoot about the condition of their vehicles.

And yeah, its kinda nice having a list of projects on the table. OTL is going to be sending me more stuff to do for them, too!
So loooots of stuff to do!

Titan got legs pinned, so I could start to mess with posing. Just waiting on WM to ship me a few vehicle wrecks to use on the base before I start gluing it together. Mostly just uninteresting gap filling on that front.

As to the jets- Bombs and Rokkits are done and just need a little weathering.


The Jets should be complete tomorrow (finally!!)- assuming weather cooperates enough to flat coat them. At the moment, the only parts in need of paint are the grot turrets- and those are just yellow!


And sort of related, but this is what greeted me when I opened my pot of red foundation the other day....


Maybe if I water it down..... <.<
