2 updates in 2 days?  What is the world coming to?

The last week, alongside the Blood Angel Sergeant in the last post, I finally got around to finishing the Razorback I've had for nearly 2 years...

I'm really chuffed with the result, particularly the battle damage and "dirtification".

The Crimson Fist chapter symbols came out well too, plus the lettering on the scroll, if a little off centre, looks reasonable.

Most of the highlighting was done with drybrushing - not something I use much these days, but seemed the best method with a tank (without much freehand on it). 

Colours used (DB = Drybrush)

  • Blue: Regal Blue, Ultramarine Blue (DB), Ice Blue (DB), Skull White (DB)
  • Red: Scab Red, Blood Red, Solar Macharius Orange
  • Metal (apart from weapons): Tin Bitz, Badab Black wash, Boltgun Metal (DB), Chainmail (DB)
  • Battle Damage: Chaos Black, Chainmail, stippled Tin Bitz
  • Grey: Adeptus Battle Grey, Badab Black wash, Codex Grey (DB), Skull White (DB)
  • Dirt: Scorched Brown (thinned), Calthan Brown (thinned), Dheneb Stone (DB), Skull White (DB)

This week I've set myself at least 2 miniatures to finish - one is Haldir from LotR (Elf Archer Captain, friend of Aragorns, gets killed in The Two Towers at Helm's Deep - Movie version), and the other is an old Empire swordsman.  If those two get finished, I have an Eldar Warlock to get on with.


  1. I still think the tank needs bird poop on top....maybe some smashed bugs on the, er, windscreen or whatever serves as a windscreen. :P

  2. Nah, you don't want bugs and bird poop (although that would be funny). It's WARhammer! You want bullet marks and dents from running into things (and enemies) - you know, manly stuff.
