Frustrated. And as a result, I've put this aside for a bit, even though I know I should just soldier on.
The problem is that I didn't get the results I expected from the salt chipping method.
It worked, but I miscalculated. Scale wise, it's probably "accurate". But visually, you can barely tell.
When I did this on my Tycho AFV, I felt I put too much salt down in too few areas of concentration and I didn't really like the results there. So this time, I sprinkled it more lightly, but it turned out to be too lightly.
The other mistake I made here is that I didn't really think about where I wanted the rust to appear. I concentrated mostly on what I would consider "wear areas" without really thinking about it. I did this because I was thinking it would save me some effort if I didn't paint the rust undercoat on the whole model.
What I learned.
- paint the whole darn thing like a rust bucket.
- use more salt.
I'm glad I decided up front that this was going to be a practice model for an RCon entry.
I just hit Google for Death Eagle Space Marines. You should get several of the old ads.
Or Death Eagles.
Now that I look a little more closely, in the second picture, the fourth miniature (looks like a female holding a lasgun) might be "Female TPR Bush".
Stuff Of Legend Link, the last image has what might be her.
I guess I am going to Hell.
Have made dinner, it is on the table and I have fork halfway to my mouth when my wife says "You know what day of the week it is?".
- Pause -
It is Lent.
As an Episcopalian, I [we] am/are supposed to be observing certain dietary proscriptions.
I'm not just eating meat but actual Bacon on a Wednesday, during Lent.
I had Bacon for lunch as well.
