Space Wolves Drop-pod #4

I had never tried weathering effects on a GW model before. After watching a few videos from Ichiban Studios and the likes, I thought I would give it a go.

What could go possibly wrong ?

Famous last worlds, hey ?

Now the method, was really a madness, to be honest. I started out by dabbing Vallejo Air Gunmetal with an offcut of sponge. I took care to focus on areas that I thought would have high amounts of wear would have occurred. 

I found that the sponge method is a little inaccurate, so I had to go back in and dab some GW Technical Tyhpus Corrosion, to dull it down. After this I added back Ryza Rust. Everything was going fine so I got a little cocky.

 I had some Vallejo rust  pigment that I thought I would dust onto a few surfaces. So far everything seemed to be going to plan, or so I thought.

Can I just say, pigments are really easy to stipple on, so much so you tend to lose track of what you're doing. And in this case, that's exactly what I did, or rather over did.

In the end my Wolf Blue was looking more like a Blood Angels red drop pod. So I had to crack out an old tooth brush and scrub a bit, but that didn't seem to shift the pigment.  

In the end, I sprayed isopropyl alcohol to fix the pigment and went back in with some Vallejo Air Somber Grey, then again with some Vallejo Game Air Wolf Grey.

And this is how it turned out...

I might still need to go back in finish up some interior detailing, but really I am not sure if I will , at the moment.

So, what do you think?
