Trooptastic # 6: Rusty Templars.... of DOOooom!

The repaint/overhaul of the first squad of Marines is well underway. The rusty parts are done. I've simplified my rust formula down a little bit thanks to the new formula dry medium Ryza Rust. Every thing starts with my "standard" black-brown base (which, if you haven't seen before is basically 50/50 Scorched Brown/Chaos Black - slightly thinned with acrylic matte medium over a grey primer) Then its these 3 colors....

Stipple on one color after another, catching edges where it looks right. I may go in with a little ink here and there to get some details, but that's basically it for "tabletop". And I'm pretty happy with the results.Plus, its easy and fast.

Next, its on to the green parts and then the details. More to come. I may or may not be able to get in a post before Christmas because of a seriously crazy schedule. If I don't, to all of you who visit the Mekkshop I just want to say thanks for checking in to my little corner of the interwebs, Happy Solstice, Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukkah (belated), Happy Boxing Day, Happy Kwanza and any other holiday I may have forgotten. If you happen to be imbibing, have one for me... I'll probably be working.

Cheers Ya'll!
