that did not turn out the way i hoped for.
i do not totally give up on pigments... but that is too much of a mix of "improvement" and "mess-up".
So, pigments are out for the moment - i will need to experiment with alternative techniques with those.
For the pledge, that plan is cancelled.
However, pigments (on the Chimera) are not all i did in the meantime.
The weapons received a few more washes and are done (Stubber, HKM and bolter as examples on the photo).
More washes on the wheels and tracks, those will need a few more, but they won't torn out as dirty as i intended.
Tools, grips and stowage got finished... sufficient, i would say.
Several edged on the Chimera/LR already received a treatment with graphite. Subtle, but effective.
So... last mile.
