Slow progress on this project this month, and even less time for updates. My hope is to have something to show for Armies on Parade but that may be optimistic. A deadline always helps with my productivity.
Bases (I tried to take pictures at every step, but they probably don't correlate 1:1):
-Drybrushed VGC Stonewall Grey then VMC Dead White
-Metal Painted VGC Gunmetal, then VGC Brown Ink
-Wood painted VGC Charred Brown, Drybrushed VGC Earth, VGC Heavy Brown, and VGC Bonewhite on Edges.
-An oil wash of lamp black and van dyke brown was applied
-Secret Weapon Rust Brown, Rust Red and Rust Orange pigments were applied to the metal.
-Secret Weapon Dark Earth, Green Earth and Ancient Earth pigments were applied where I thought soil might show through.
-After sealing the pigment, bases were given black rims with a Liquitex acrylic paint marker - a breakthrough in base rim painting.
-Airbrushed VGC Gunmetal
-Zenthal airbrush of VGC Silver
-Lamp black oil wash to recesses and burt umber oil wash all over
- Drybrush with VGC Gunmetal, sealed with Testors glosscote.
-Three layers of AK Heavy Chipping Fluid
