Sacrificed and damaged

It's been a while, I have still been working away on my Alpha legion project. I need to take stock and have a look at where I am I the updates, but first I have a few of the latest pieces that I have been working on. I know ther are more but I'm not sure which ones I have posted before, I'll take a look later and follow up with some more WIPs.

As everyone and their wife seems to have been doing an Age of Sigmar conversion post, I thought im light as well be no different :) these are still very much WIPs but they are coming along nicely, I really like the effects on the armour, the turquoise is developing nicely.

/// Fluff Warning ///

These are to be my Devoveo, the sacrificed and the cursed.
They have made the greatest sacrifice and have devoted themselves to Khorne, there will be other devotions in the near future, but one squad a t a time. These few follow the teachings of Omegaron, and let their souls be used by the ruinous powers, casting aside their humanity for the chance to save the souls of others.

/// End of fluff ///

I have also been working on expanding my mechanised decision, but in he spirit of the army so far, they are reclaimed, battle damaged and not in the best of conditions.

There are a number of techniques used on the these models, salt weathering, dry brushing, oil filters and washes, and chalk powders. They are still WIPs and still have a way to go yet, but I'm please with the results so far.

 First up is my ebay rescue land raider, i cant remember the colour scheme, but it needed a dettol bath.

(helpful hint, dont wash the dettol off, until you have scrubbed all the paint away, it jsut turns into a gooey mess)

Close up of the weathering.

I will do a propper description of the techniques used, but in brief, paint the rust on the areas you want it to be revealed in.
Cover those areas in salt.
Spray undercoat colour.
Add more salt.
Spray top colour.
Wait until this is all dry and brush off with a tooth brush.
Continue weathering with oils and powders.

My count as Chimera, Im not overly keen on the GW model, but this one from Puppets War, is much better in my opinion.
 Last but certainly not least is my battle scarred battle tank.

More work on these is needed to be sure, but soon they will be finished.

These are my first attempts at vehicles, never even owned vehicles before, but I'm loving these dirty hulks, definitely more of them in the future.


  1. I'm blown away by the weathering work you've done. It's beautiful!

    1. Thank you, the next vehicle that gets the treatment I'll post a diary of the techniques used.
      Thanks again :)
