Greetings, fraters!

 

Here is my third video tutorial, "How to Weather Zone Mortalis Bases". My next video will be on how to paint and weather a Dreadnought Drop Pod from start to finish. Next Saturday (if everything goes well): how to prime the Drop Pod and do a rust undercoat, in preparation for chipping effects. 

 

 

I am not a commission painter or youtuber. I am just making the videos which I would have liked to have when I started. If you have any requests for future videos, please let me know. 

 

Regards,

Cool stuff my man!

Subbed after the first video.

My process is pretty similar to yours with a few differences:

 

In case you care:

gloss varnish

put on ak dark brown wash pretty much straight from the pot in large spots around my recesses and everything I want highlighted. When I am done with the tenth guy its pretty much dry on the first one. so I immediately start removing the wash again.

I take Q tips and dip them into odourless thinner to wipe it off again.

 

I propably waste a bit of paint by using it unthinned, but I feel like I save a lot of time. The varish will protect the paint underneath anyways, so I am good on that front and I am also able to reactivate a bit of the paint thats on the surfaces and manipulate it into a filter / crusty dirt.

I wear plastic gloves and old clothes while painting. Helps me to test colours on my legs or hands as well biggrin.png

 

But yeah it is a messy process but I do like the rough approach, makes me feel like a mason

Hey, I just realised you're located in Germany also. 

 

Masonry indeed, I love the analogy.
