Titan Update - bulkhead


I have painted the back bulkhead to try out the internal colours. I used acrylics and then oil paints (burn umbar & purple) to create grease stains. The rust is courtesy of MIG Powders.

  2. Looks brilliant, lovely colour choices and as Cyborg Trucker said looks like it would have been great fun to paint! :)

  3. That is disgusting, well done! I particularly like the rust on the pipes and floor. The purple seems a bit bright to me, especially competing with the bright green. I'd guess a mild wash of devlan mud on the purple would stop the green and purple arguing. You're on a roll, well done!

  5. I am jealous! I love the way the rust is turning out. I am not a fan of the purple either, but it is extremely well done, and does make the organic growth look really good by contrast. Have you used purity seal on this yet? You mentioned problems blowing the pigment off, and if your alternatives work this well then I will adopt them immediately.

  6. Dear Guys.
    Thanks for the kind remarks. I do see colours a bit different to normal people but the cans are Chaos additions to the warhound Titan so I wanted to make them stand out as unnatural. Mindful of your remarks, I will probably restrict it to those two cans.

  7. Um....., in the last sentence 'it' meaning the colour purple.

  8. Brilliant job. All these great examples you keep showing are convincing me to get some of those powders.

  10. Dear Master Darksol & Christian

    Thanks, I appreciate the encouragement.
    Powders are tricky but worth it. I am slowly learning how to use them.

  12. Hi John,
    Dunno if anyone mentioned it yet or if you found it by trial and error, but if you are having issues with the powders blowing off you can try one of two things.
    For a dry look you can fix them in place by dabbing on white spirits to make them stick to the oil washes below. don't get too carried away though as it can ruin that hard work you put in if you get too rough when applying.
    For a "wet" look you can blend them on using some GW 'Ard Coat, just make sure you let it dry for a while before sealing (you can make mud and wet slush for bases by mixing your powders with water effects too!).
