Next up is a couple Armigers!
On my first I decided to experiment a little and marble the top carapace. In general I try to experiment or do some thing a little different/new on just about every model I do. Whether its a conversion technique, decal technique, or painting technique to name a few possibilities.
In this case it was a painting technique with my airbrush. I saw a random facebook post that mentioned something about a 'dryer sheet' method of painting marble. And that was basically the only information provided. . .so I decided to give it a try!
So this is for sure a new weapon in my painting arsenal. After this I did a bunch of Adeptus Titanicus panels too!
Other than that I painted the rest of the model like the Knight for the most part. Just changed up some chassis colors. I did the enamel wash over the marble too. And the final result.
For my 2nd Armiger I decided to try something new. Over on the Heresy30k forum a member posted their technique/process on how they acheived a beaten copper look on the armor panels of their 28mm Warlord. I think I got the overall look down but it seems to just look better on the larger Warlord armor panels because you have more room to play.
So that was a fun little experiment. And the next time I do a set of martian bases I will do a little tutorial. The next thing I want to experiment with is adding pigments to the bases! I have a bunch of colors of pigment from Secret Weapon ready and waiting.
I also painted up a random objective, and as you can see the Armigers are magnetized. Plan is to eventually get some alternate weapon options.
A little sneak peak at what I am currently working on.
Now. . .what could this little guy be doing?
