Drybrushing the Steam Tank

After “washing” the Victorian Science Fiction Steam Tank from Ironclad Miniatures I gave it a relatively light drybrush.

I used a combination of Vallejo Middlestone and a mix of Middlestone (882) and Ivory (918), and a large brush.

Now a side view.

Here is the Steam Tank alongside a Foundry Gunfighter.

Ork Aircraft Traktor Fuel Bowser

One of the Forgeworld models I have always liked is the Ork Aircraft Traktor and Launch Trolley. Ideal to go with my Ork Bommer.

Sadly this is now no longer available, so when stocks were running low (back in 2006) I bought one.

The model consists of the plastic Wartrakk and some resin pieces.

Having put the model together and started on the paint job, I wanted to tidy up and neaten the weathering, which seems to have worked.

Having put the model together I initially gave it a white undercoat. Having re-looked at the model I decided that I wanted the dirty rusty metal look I had given some of my other Ork vehicles, so I gave the model a black undercoat. This was then initially given a drybrush of Tin Bitz.

I then gave it a drybrush of Boltgun Metal.

I also used some Blazing Orange to add rusty streaks.

Drybrushing the Gunwagon

In a post the other day I showed how I drybrushed my Ork Looted Rhino. I used the same technique with my Ork Gunwagon.

I had given the Gunwagon an ink based wash, after this had dried, I gave the model a drybrush.

This brings out the detail, but I did try and avoid being too heavy with the brush.

I will now need to go back over some of the metal details to lose some of the the dusty dirty look.

I also want to go over the front “teef” and add some weathering and scratches – well do you expect Orks to look after their vehicles and keep them clean and looking like they just came out of the showroom?

Drybrushing the Rhino

The next stage of the modelling journey for my Ork Looted Rhino was to drybrush some detail onto the model.

I had given the Rhino an ink based wash, after this had dried, I gave the model a drybrush.

This brings out the detail, but I did try and avoid being too heavy with the brush.

I will now need to go back over some of the metal details to lose some of the the dusty dirty look.

There is still some work to do, in particular I still need to model the front top hatches.

Drybrushing

After giving the Inquisitorial Stormtroopers a wash consisting of Chestnut Ink, Scorched Brown paint (which helps remove the gloss of the ink) and some water to thin the wash down. I then drybrushed the uniforms with Desert Yellow.

The sergeant and the heavy weapons.

Next stage will be the details.
