Showcase: Re-Based Soviet Army

Motivated by a club event this past weekend, I spent the night re-basing and touching up my Bolt Action Soviet army. Went with a winter urban theme to suit my ongoing Stalingrad terrain project. Better photos to come in the near future.

WIP: Grots, Grots, More Grots

60 moonclan grots (pokas?) on the paint table. Airbrushed highlights and a wash.

Now on to a mind-numbing amount of edge highlighting before I do the rest of the details.

VMA Anthracite Grey (base)

Mixed in VMA Stonewall Grey (highlight)

4/1 mix of VMA Stonewall Grey and VMA Anthracite Grey (second highlight)

50/50 mix Vallejo Airbrush Flow Improver and Citadel Nuln Oil (wash)

Tutorial: Bronze Statue

All-in-all, took about an hour (aside from dry times) to complete.

  1. Stynylrez Black Primer
  2. VMC bronze airbrushed on leaving the recesses dark
  3. Citadel Nuln Oil Gloss all over, followed by Matte Varnish
  4. Drybrush of VMC Bronze and VMA Aluminum mixed
  5. Citadel Nihilahk Oxide applied selectively in recessed and watered down on the model
  6. VMA Dead White airbrushed from above
  7. Citadel Valhallan Blizzard applied lightly.
  8. The plinth was various greys airbrushed on with the above bronze effect applied to decorative bits.
  9. The basing follows my previous tutorial.
