I'm not dead! Just haven't been in the 40k mode for a few months. But I'm back to finish some Blight!
After Spraying the model Black, lay down a coat of Vallejo Rust, followed by Vallejo Sandy Brown in a splotchy uneven pattern. Then Mix Vallejo Sandy Brown with Vallejo FIre Red and spray one more splotchy layer.
After letting the rust layer dry fully, spray the model with a coat of clear matte (I use Vallejo cause I'm a Vallejo Product Whore). Then spray the model with hairspray and sprinkle salt on it.
Spray the entire model evenly with Vallejo Pale Green.
This is where the fun begins. I sprayed the entire model with a thinned coat of green Ranger Distress Crackle. The thinned coat will not crackle much at all…but it will overlay a zenithal lighting effect on the green. I then took a brush and applied heavy coats of the crackle paint to larger sections of armor. NOW THAT CRACKLED.
After drying, remove all the salt with a heavy brush and warm water. Let it dry over night.
At this point the model is looking pretty weathered, but it could use na extra kick to amplify the crackle effect. I sprayed the entire model with a very thinned wash of SWM Algae Wash. After drying I sprayed a super thin coat of SWM Amethyst Wash, and then a final super thin coat of SWM Blue Black Wash.
And BOOM! Decades of decay in 2 days.
I'm very excited about how this army is going to look in the end. More to come soon :)
