Particularly larger-shelled bullets, like a bolter.

I saw the one on the GW site, and disliked it.

Paint the hole black. then paint all of the hole except the very hole in it whether a point or flat. then paint the sides of it boltgun silver or if you prefer, a dark shade of whatever colour the armour is. Then highlight it up as far as you want.



PS: Oh and anph, sorry about the delay with the cloak tutorial. I've been cooped up with school recently. the holidays ended on the day i bought the paints. I still need to do the tute. I'll do it tomorrow maybe.

Ok, no problem.

I have nothing but time.

I was thinking about painting the hole a darker shade--i really want an exploded feel.

I'll have to work on it myself i guess. I'll figure out a good method sometime, ill post it i guess.

Bullet hole go here:

it is a sticker, but you can see the grey field along with the black spot for the hole. The top of teh black spot paint dark grey 9or whatever color your armor is0 and then paint the bottom of the black spot with a highlight.

Has anyone ever tried drilling out a bullet hole or making a small indent in the model than silver around the outside and black in the small middle part of the hole??

That's what I would have thought to do... By actually putting a hole in the model, you can then use a knife to create stress fractures and splits/rips in the armor. Then, using typical drybrushing/layering/washing techniques, the hole can be properly weathered. If on an extended campaign, maybe the vehicle should have a few rust streaks from older damage.

that's what I do for my bases, I uses a layer of textured plasticard sheets they sell at my local hobby store, then use a drillbit for the holes, a hobby knife to cut in some cracks surrounding the hole, and I paint the inside of the hole black.
It works pretty well.
