|Forget the promise of progress and understanding, for in the grim dark future there is only rust.|
|Color selection completed, now let's resume ignoring the state of the work-area in my shed.|
|Black primer applied. Instantly taking away the toy look.|
|I know gun-fu!|
|I should've used an airbrush, but I was lazy (and it feels ok).|
Then I applied a few sprays of neon green followed by even fewer neon yellow. And there (I think) is the answer as to why you would want neon paint.
|Let's not take a bath in that.|
|Dry paint! Dry like the wind!|
One challenge I definitively have is to make something equal to Typhus Corrosion. I consider this Citadel Technical paint as almost equal to using black magic. It applies a bit like a thick wash, dries with a nice corroded texture and covers the area with a grey/green/brownish/blackish color. I used it earlier while painting my siege towers and I want to use some comparable effects here. Unfortunately the GW pots of paint are way too small to cost-effectively use them on terrain.
I've checked around on the usual Facebook groups (and Googled) but so far no one has a homebrew recipe. Any ideas are most welcome, but I suspect I'll be experimenting with paint, pva, sand and floor polish is in my foreseeable future. No problem as the browns I used need more than a day to dry properly (damn you cheap aerosols!). In the meantime I can start on a second set of four plates, in all humility I think this project has enough merits to start expanding it.
