Got a little more work done on test can. Pipe got painted gray, and I put two heavy washes of agrax earthshade all over.


The wash pooled/streaked quite a bit, but it's ok because there is a lot going on top that will cover it all up. Going to bring the color back up with a few drybrushes, then there will be some chipping and grimy streaky-leaky stuff added.

Gobert, I thought about hazard stripes are but trying to do that on round objects terrifies me! I think I'm going to leave them off for now, but they'll definitely get added to any platformer areas added to the pieces going forward.

Thanks,

MegaDave

Nice work. The washes over the primer have created a very fun industrial yellow that fits the theme perfectly. Scratch-built terrain is so fun to look at, the way that it elevates the piece so far beyond its component parts. Looking forward for the "grimy streaky-leaky stuff" because that is my favorite part of all terrain features.

Looking nice and dirty now, Agrax Earthshade really is an amazing paint! Fair shout on the Stripes, i did wonder if your precision riveting might have made it easier to do on the horizontal bands. I look forward to a return to stripes with the platforms though!

Oh yeah, I'm not done with the hazards. Just need something a little more rectangular.

Tonight I got everything drybrushed up to their starting colors and a highlight, then chipped it all to hell.

I used the basing paint to create lumpy areas that will end up as rust piles. I thought it was a good way to cover up some areas I wasn't completely happy with. Can't do anything else with it until it dries, so have a good one!

Thanks,

3D rust is great. Oxidization is beautiful. Looking great, in a broken-down way.

Love the name for your terrain, you should trademark it Great work on the first piece, you found a good color scheme there!

Thanks! I'm liking it even more with the orange on it. Did a great job of covering up some gaps.

Glad you like it, never know until you try I guess!

Got the rust and oil streaks done tonight, as well as finishing the rust.

Used vallejo acylic model washes for the streaks and oil stains. They're pretty neat, a little more pigment that the gw shades.


I didn't like this gap, so I decided to cover it with some plant life.


It covered it alright, but fun fact, that vallejo acylic wash takes forever to dry and the flock started getting stuck in it! I was able to brush most of it off, but be warned if you ever use it.

Letting all that dry and hopefully should have all the final details finished tomorrow. I'll be making the plant life a little more irregular as well, can't have it looking like a pipe cleaner!

Thanks,

Ooh, great solution with the seam there. I've never tried modeling fungus before! Do you think it would take a wash well?

Thanks, I thought it was a decent solution. I've never washed it before, but it would probably soak it up and stain it, so for color variation it'd probably work. I'll have to do some test fungus sometime!

Finished the old can today, clearcoated and everything.

Pretty happy it with how it turned out, being a soup can and all.

Bulked out the greenery a bit as well.

Now that I have a color scheme and know the rivets won't fall off, I just have to figure out exactly what I want to do with the rest of those cans!

Thanks,

Grand dirtiness. The creeping fungus is a nice touch.

Looks good MegaDave! I particularly like the lumpy rust and dripping grime. One thing if I may, is that a light pencil mark might be better to mark out the positions of the rivets. The pen marks seem to be showing through. Still looks great though

That Abaddon sorcerer is gorgeous! This is also inspiring me to give contrast a go.
