a pursuit of fruitless endeavors and endless refinements

Fully Armed And Operational

Last week, I had completed the customization of my Aegis Orbital Defense Laser for Dropzone Commander but I hadn’t completed the painting of it yet. Since it was to be used in a game later that weekend, I had to get it done and I thought I’d share the final model.

I’m really loving the way it finally turned out.  The pick up of Army Builder’s Dry Rust effect really did a good job after I toned it all down with a heavy dose of Citadel’s Nuln Oil shade.

    Great job on the rust. Not too much, not too little, and all the weathering comes together. I never know when to go with Nuln Oil or whatever they call Devlan Mud these days.

    You know, stick a bat silhouette in front of the light and you can multi-task with a new signal in BMG.

      Yeah, I tend to default to the Devlan Mud for natural things or if the color scheme is “warm” and Nuln Oil for mechanical, B/W, and “cold” colors. I still have some Devlan Mud but it’s dying and I’ll need to grab the replacement (and finally figure out what they called it).

        I think warm & cold is a good rule of thumb for me to adopt. Now that’s added to my “Tips From Christian” 🙂
