Industrial bases in 28mm

Posted by Kekso on 20 Feb 2021, 15:03

Here's step by step how I've painted industrial bases from Necromunda set Plalanite Subjugator Patrol.

After cleaning, washing and priming I've painted bases with old Citadel metallic paint Boltgun Metal. I think that any standard metallic paint will do (e.g. Vallejo Steel).

Image

After that I gave them generous amount of dark wash. Nuln Oil in this case, but again, any will do.

Image

This is my magic "secret" when I paint rust. Rust Set from Secret Weapon (USA) is amazing product.
I've started with darkest and finished with lightest. I was applying it with sponge.

Image

Then I started to work on hazard stripes. Firstly, I painted yellow base.

Image

Next thing was to mask parts that I wanted to remain yellow. I've used 2mm Ammo by Mig masking tape.

Image

After painting black, I've removed masking tape and I've applied some yellow with sponge on black parts and some Boltgun Metal on all hazard stripes.

Image

Finally, I did some more washing and weathering as explained above. I've painted sides of bases in black and I gave nice coat of varnish to all 6 bases. And here is final result:

It is crazy that you turn new things into old and worn out.
And to top this I say: "Wat a great work Kekso" !

I really like the step by step with the color bottles and the result.
:yeah:

Dali your skills just keep expanding farther and farther.

I don't have any current projects that call for post-apocylptic industrial bases, but if I did, I would be racing back to find this post.

I am now speed-painting some figures for Necromunda, but I do not put such effort on basis. Your bases are indeed super cool!

I'm making these for painting competition. That's why I did my best.
Unfortunately, they won't be finished in time. :eh:

Plus, my miniatures club encourages us to write articles for our website. This tutorial will be one article.
