Monday last week I decided that I wanted to try something fun / show something different at the Horus Heresy Throne of Skulls, so I decided to hit up 3 Basilisks and take my Castellum. It was a true race against time, so I had to ask Kaelo to give me a hand with the work (mostly while I put little Nathaniel to bed).
So as you can see I achieved it :)
So to start. 50/50 Leadbelcher was airbrushed onto the tank.
Then zenithal and zonal highlighting with Thinned Runefang steel was used to break it up.
After that it was purity sealed (heat gunned to prevent frosting in cold weather).
Then the main chassis had black segments painted.
The tracks were then re done with Leadbelcher.
The brass details were picked out with Warplock to Runelord brass.
The sides (left off til this stage - yet silvered beneath the masking tape you can see above) was sprayed Averland Sunset base then to Yriel yellow at the top.
I then added transfers. Cut nice and close to the decal.
The whole tank (- crew) were then glued together and purity sealed again.
I then splotched Burnt umber oil paint in places over the tank and flooded with white spirits (by this time it was 02:00 before I had to be up at 05:00 so no photos of this stage but if you search death guard Medusa top left you can see a guide on oil washes).
