Ork Land Raider Battlewagon (painted)

Ork Land Raider Battlewagon (painted)

Well, you've all been clamouring to see some (all!) of my conversions painted. So, I've rushed one through just to prove that I can paint! I just prefer making ...

Base colour is a mix of Bolt Gun, Tin Bitz, Dwarf Bronze and Black. I use this on all my Ork vehicles instead of black. Mix varies a bit for some variety.

Blue bits are Ultramarine, shaded and highlighted. Then the fun began .....

1. Overall wash with MiG Dark Wash.

2. Drybrush with a brush dampened with thinners, vertical strokes to take wash off high spots and give "runs".

3. Fresh scratches on wear aread made by dabbing with stiff sponge scourer (e.g. Scotchbrite) that has been barely dipped in Mithril Silver. See side gun positions.

4. Partial washes and spotting with MiG Dark and Light Rust Washes. Look at the Deff Roller spikes for spot wash effects.

5. Application of MiG dry pigments. I used Old Rust and Standard Rust for rust, Lunar Dust on the steps and doorways, Track Brown on the tracks and Rocket Exhaust on the exhausts and weapon muzzles.
Either brush on dry with a fairly stiff brush and then set in place with Pigment Fixer, or paint on the pigment fixer first and then dab on the pigment with the brush

6. Spot washes with MiG Oil and Grease Stain Wash and thinned MiG Engine Grease oil paint, plus a few blobs of the oil paint as grease blobs. See the axles along the lower hull. Track link joins are done with the oil paint wash.

7. Fuel leak stains around tank/drum fillers made with Lifecolor Tensocrom "Fuel" and "kerosene".

8. Rub over the track links and weapons with a solid graphite pencil.

I think Orky vehicles, especially looted ones, should be rusty, oily manky old things. This is my first attempt to bring that idea to life. I decided not to go down the "mud" line, other than some boot-dust on the footboards. All you get then is a muddy vehicle, and that wasn't what I was after.
