Here was the teaser :
Now the eagle eyed amongst you will have recognised the old Gunwagon (now OOP) minus the gun, making it some sort of heavy armoured battle wagon I guess ?
The idea was that I should do a little tutorial to go along the build so I tried to take pics at every major step of the process !
First part was obviously to prepare all the parts (there were quite a few) :
A little glue work with added weight to let the tracks set real flat :
I also sanded the bottom of the whole thing to ensure the tracks were fully in contact with the ground at all points and avoid anyirritating wobbling. (Skeletons just having a laugh for scale purposes)
Now the dreaded moment of the undercoat revealing any problems !
I then loosely sprayed a ix of brown, orange and kakhi paints around the vehicle for a rusted base (I strongly got inspired by my my friend Shoeba9 O'Paulface for the rust part )
And drybrushed the whole thing with leadbelcher
The rest of it was just :
- washes (brown and black mostly with some blue and orange to provide more variations)
- foam weathering with a dark neutral brown and leadbelcher
- rust streaks with skrag brown then cadmium red
- a bit of typhuis corrosion at the lowest parts
- silver lining on some edges
As you can see the wagon fits with the rest of the ar... FORCE and will be a great asset for some fast support !
f I don't get the chance before, I wish you a very happy time for winter celebrations !
