I like to use a platinum paint drybrushed on the 'muzzle' of a plasma weapon to show its heated up.

Magician made a good point with the plasma coils and heating (2 good methods described by Magician and Rindarus). The way I do the heating wear is a light tin bitz drybrysh over a brazen brass drybrush (there 3 techniques to choose from).

Glad to see I am not the only one who has Black Legion and Dark Angels. Keep up the good work, and keep us posted.

Well I did put some Tin Bitz around the muzzle so I guess it needs more.

As for brazen brass they don't sell it around here anymore and its one of the discontinued paints so I'm not putting much stock in it, though I do have all the other metallics.

Okay so I tried out some Black Legion today cause I was bored of Green after putting 2 layers of Green on my rhino.

Here are my two choices what do you guys think?

This one done with a dry brush 50/50 Codex Grey and Chaos Black (Though the paint was a bit too wet and it got covered a bit too much)



or

This one done with a Dry brush of Tin Bitz (I realize that I have to go over the gold again... for some reason doesn't paint on black as well as the silvers)



My goal is for a rough looking soldier, as I don't feel that chaos should be new and shiny it should be old and dingy, dirty, and just down right nasty.

Looking good! Water down some Chestnut ink or Brown Ink from Reaper and brush over it (wash it) if you want the additional feel of dirt built up in the recesses. My hat is off to you sir.

Looking great. I really love the 'Rocket' Launcher pose. As for the Chaos, there are tons of ways to make them look worn. Some dry brushing around the hard edges of the armour gives it a worn look. As mgtymouze said some brown ink or Chestnut ink gives them a good dirty look. Some actual scrapes in the armour (previous battle damage) can give a good look to them if done well.

Keep up the good work.

I'm a sucker for tin bitz. I usually use tin titz, then a dwarf bronze lightly drybrushed over it for an antiqued bronze look (btw, a green ink/ wash over that makes it look aged/ tarnished)

Looking good man!

Tin titz eh EL?

I shall tell GC

I use a mix of black and boltbun as a base coat for my CSM metal then bring it up with Boltgun for a darker look but Els suggestion sounds good.

Looks good so far Trent, coming together nicely.
