This time I went for an Adeptus Custodes terminator. So far I have based the brass armor plates Mournfang brown and the red Khorne red. I have found a product that helps make paint cover nicely called Liquitex Flow-aid. But this time I added a little to much and it has left the paint a little on the shiny side. I am not worried about this really as the flat sealer will take that away later.

I tried to keep there gear worn a bit but I wanted to make it seem in much better shape then the rest of the army to represent how close they work with the big mek.

My wonderful wife got me this for Christmas. I have wanted this guy seance before I started playing warmachine because of how cool I thought it looked. Now I need to do the rather large amount clean up that this guy requires. If you have ever played with resin casting you will see a lot of little things on this that show that the molds were getting old when this one was poured.

But seeing it next to my original Landraider makes me happy to see the improvement.

Ok it was time to take a short break from painting my Landraider I have bean working on for a wile. So today I thought I would show you how to do mud effects for tanks. first off the supplys you will need are
1: wood glue (this bonds the sand and paint to the tank better then paint on its own)
2:brown paint (I like the cheep stuff for this because it takes a lot kinda like terrain pieces)
3:sand(I prefer my mix of cheep kids play sand and some slightly larger gravel like the brown stone you can see below this)
4:water(you need to thin the mixture out a bit)
5:something to store it in or at least mix up your batch in(I used to make it in a paper cup this time I had an old empty paint pot)
I like a 1/1/1/1 mix personally but each batch I tweak a little till it looks right
I try to get to around the same consistency as GW paint straight out of the pot perhaps a little thicker
This is what it looks like on the tank with just this mud mixture
And finally these are some finished products. The Landraider has a thicker batch that had a lot more glue and sand in it the rino got a more standard batch the rino was also dry brushed heavily with a darker brown then lightly dry brushed with bleach bone.
the landraider was a darker brown to start with but was also dry brushed with a few other browns
I hope I gave you something to play with and we can see some more texture out there on the tabletop battlefields.
