When last we saw our intrepid AT83 Brigand, she was bright red like a fresh strawberry. I am experimenting with picking out the details and I like the way the wash of Devlan Mud has dirtied it up. After all, blood doesn't dry red. It dries a dark rust, a brown, and sometimes a black. The wash interacted with the spray paint in an interesting way, spotting up in places and generally taking on a texture that implies pooling and clotting. I couldn't have done it better if I planned it.
Tracks blacked in, turret, hull and hull gun lined with one coat of Devlan Mud.
I love the spotting on the bottom of each of the three armor blocks. The clumps of mud on the road wheels and lower hull are painted black as a base coat.
Close up on the turret to see how the wash has picked out the rivets. Some of its texture may be seen in the glare at the bottom of the frame.
Here's a close up of the texture. To me it simply screams out that the tank is soiled by something more sinister than simple red paint.
Any weathering tips you might have, please post them or links to them. This is my first big vehicle project and I can use all the help I can get!
