Holy Rusted Metal!

VoltRon:

Great tutorial for rusted metal bases!

Metal is hard to maintain. It get’s gritty, looses it’s luster, accumulates rust and eventually falls apart but that’s why we love it. It grows character with age. In this post I’ll cover my technique for painting my favorite of all metals, the rusted kind. Come sit, and paint with me.

Rust1Firstly, I designed these 55mm bases for use on some of my Infinity models. By using sheets of platicard, corrugated cardboard, aluminum wire, and even a BIC pen, I was able to create an industrial look. I highly recommend trying this project out to any hobbyist. Just go nuts and have fun.

Rust2Once the bases were built I spray painted them using Army Painter’s Platemail Metal. It’s not the best surface to paint on being that it’s so glossy, so I also sprayed a coat of clear matte varnish over it.

Rust3Next is a heavy wash of P3’s Battledress Green. I like to mix in a little bit…

Is Three Wolf Moon still a thing? Here’s my take on it…

Why the lack of Circle Orboros updates?  Blame my painting spree in preparation of WMW.  The armies I’m painting are just…all of the place.

Everything is somewhere between 25-50% done (minus the Skinwalkers and Ghetorix ugh) and I keep jumping around as to avoid any kind of burn out in this crucial homestretch.

But I did want to share some progress today…

Sigh…why do I do this to myself…

So I’ve had a change of heart since last we spoke…after playing some more games practicing my Menoth, I came to a realization.

I was burned out on Menoth.  I’ve been playing them for a few years straight now, minus the 6 or so months I broke off to play Rhyas last year.

So I’ve done an about face and will be playing Circle Orboros at Warmachine Weekend this year, eKaya and Kromac to be precise.  Yes, with only a month of practice.  I going to have fun not to take the whole thing, but hey, who knows?  Maybe I’m a Circle savant…

Updates to come…

The (Short) Road to Warmachine Weekend

Myself and two friends have decided to make the trek to St. Louis this year for Warmachine Weekend!

So you know that that means:  PAINTING SPREEEEEEE!

I’ve chronicled last time what my new Menoth paint scheme will be, now it’s time to get to the nitty-gritty.  With my recent move winding down, I’ll have more time to devote back to painting.  But this post really isn’t about painting, it’s about the lists I’ll be bringing and why.

Read on True Believers!
