I painted this guy up for a local competition, and used him as a test bed for some weathering techniques that I plan to use on my Nurgle knight. He was primed silver then the metal was weathered using inks pigments and washes built up in several layers and colours. I then basecoated the red and black and used t-cut to "polish" the whole model, and highlighted the red parts.

Anyway he went down well at the comp, so I thought I'd see what you lot think.

Very nicely done, Cleatus! I love rusty exhausts and the grime/peeling paint look around the tusks looks very convincing.

I wonder whether some extra glints of a really bright metal (I use the old Chainmail) on the odd corner wouldn't add extra interest to certain areas? That said, I can see there's already a lot of edge highlights that are just difficult to see in your pictures.

It all looks good, so take this comment as a small improvement possibility rather than a criticism! On the claw, it would look really cool if there were some directional scratches in the black, leading away from the chain blades. Like the paint had been nicked an scratched as the blade bit into something.

Looks good. If I were to recommend something, I would go with typhus corruption, especially on engines and joints. I think it looks really grimy and dirty, and looks great on mechanical and oily things.

That being said, a little of typhus corruption goes a LONG way.

Oh that is one heaping dose of sexy weathering.

Subtle but noticable. Just right.
