Finally managed to get some paint on the Ordo Xenos bases – mostly done, just some pastels and some color nuances after each model is mounted.
Here’s a quick step by step, in pics:
Vallejo Model Air Rust is slapped on roughly:
Black and VJ Rust is smeared on for variation:
Ryza Rust is drybrushed onto the PVA/bicarb patches:
Boltgun Metal is sponge-dabbed on the edges and random patches:
After a gloss-coat, black oil paint is washed into crevices and used to add to the oil streaks and a second drybrush of Ryza Rust is applied:
Thanks for looking!
