This plastic battlewagon kit was released by Games Workshop on the 3rd January 2009 and I picked mine up on the 4th January. I had hoped to paint the model quite quickly, well nearly ten years later, maybe not.
The last stage I left the model was back in 2010 when I had drybrushed the black parts of the model. It then got left for a while, well it got left for quite a few years! So I recently unearthed it from storage with the intention of finishing it off. Having constructed the model, shading it with washes and some light drybrushing, I wanted to add some more weathering.
What I wanted was to get both a dusty and rusty look to the model.
I drybrushed the model with more XV-88 then doing a lighter drybrush with a mix of XV-88 and Ushabti Bone, before finally using some Ushabti Bone.
I then took some Citadel Dry paint, Golgfag Brown and using a smaller drybrush added patches here and then across the model to represent rusty or rusting patches on the wagon.
With this model, less is more, so I think I might go back to the model and use some weathering powders.
I still think I need to rust up the tracks more, as well as the death roller.
