Here's some wip

Not sure what to do with the relief. Some desecration is needed. Maybe some crucifixion. ....

This seems weird done with time to go and it wasn't a single model, didn't really like the casting on these and means didn't enjoy so these aren't as good as normal from me. Lightning looks weird when out of focus too is a bit sharper than it looks.

^^^ I quite like them TBH, although the focus is a bit off for some of them. Maybe take a couple of picture with only two or three models at a time so we can get a good look at the detail?

I finished up my Battlewagon tonight. I've been trying out new paints and new techniques galore recently, and I wanted to avoid a "clean" look on this vehicle. Gone for a clanky rustbucket. I've got some Mek Guns, and Killa Kans to get around to, and I'm going to revisit my Trukk too.
Adding Rust and grime is really effective, and pretty straightforward. Obviously I've gone a bit overboard here, but I was really enjoying the way the effect works and got a bit carried away.
Still, it was fun to paint.

I forgot to add, I left it modular, so that I can configure it however I want for any game. I wasn't going to bother with the 'Ard case at first, and quite like having the Kannon over the cab, but thought I do it all anyway, and keep my options open.
The Kaptin and the blanking plate have a tendency to fall out though, which is annoying. I may have to weigh them down somehow. Anyone got any tips?

Some sacrilegious graffiti? 8 pointed stars and the like over Imperial insignia etc, bullet hole damage and the like, covered in spray paint?

And it looks great!! Very impressive and it certainly looks well battle worn

I haven't even got a base coat on my Trukk yet

Wow mate, that looks incredible! Great work with the effects, but even the checkering is great and the whole model seems really characterful! As to weighting... Considered wrapping a jewelery chain from a cheap jewellery store around things? It would still look in theme if you chose a dull one, and will lend the weight you need.

Cheers Iraqiel & R_Squared, there's some extra pics in my project log in the signature of half the group at a time which is better in focus.

That's a really cool battlewagon mate looks exactly as it should in my eyes great job.

DaisyDuke if in doubt put a giant chaos star over the defiled aquila instant chaosified, you could use some of the banners you get in infantry kits/extras from the tank kits if you have the spares they should help
