R2-D2 and C-3PO
Star Wars Legion - Republic Clone Troopers
For the most part, these dudes are all drybrushed with various silvers. I started them with a black primer coat followed by a heavy drybrush of Leadbelcher.
To give them an oily metal feel I wash the entire model with Agrax Earthshade and let it fully dry. This gives the model a bit of a brown tinge to it as well. Which in turn makes the model more interesting to look at.
After the wash is dry it's time to go through the spectrum of silver. I drybrush the entire model with Leadbelcher again, followed by Stormhost Silver and Vallejo Aluminum Air. Similar to Threepio earlier, each brighter highlight is focused higher on the model.
The armor plating is painted using Citadel Contrast paint. The plates are first painted with Gor Grunta Fur, followed by Flesh Tearers Red and then another layer of Gor Grunta. Letting each layer fully dry before the next is applied. After the final layer is dry, the plates are drybrushed with Stormhost Silver to add some wear and scrapes.
I still need to add some mud effects to the newer one, but he matches pretty well for being painted a month apart!
|More progress on the beholder diorama happened this week, as I started adding ground cover and vegetation to the model. There's a lot of work to be done yet before I can get to painting it though, as I need to add more rubble to the ground and perhaps some flowers to the vines.|
But I'm loving how this is coming together so far.
That's it for now. There's a lot of things happening so far this year and I'll try my hardest to keep up the updates.
Until next time, you can catch me on Twitter and Instagram.
