WIP: NOVA Open Ironstrider Base & Guns

I used similar colors to the rider, but skewed a bit darker and less saturated to make sure the focus keeps moving up from the base to the rider. Let's see how it goes...

This will get some weathering down the road...
The gun casings where a bit different from the black I used for the rubber hoses and such too.
 The it was onto the base. The skull was wet blended with these colors:
 And the sand was tinted with a few glazes.
 This will get tons of martian red powders later :)
 A simple and strong base to build on.

Next Post: Basing and shading the Ironstrider!

Thanks for following along. I hope you are enjoying this project and remember; you can't spell paint without a little pain.


  1. Sweeeeeeeet. That base is fantastic - good stuff, man!

    1. It gets way better. Wait until it hit it with the martian red powders ;)

    2. OMG Zab. OK I'm waiting.
      Brilliant stuff.

  2. Looking sweet so far dude, looking foward to seeing it with the martian powders

  3. Very impressive results with the metallic paints. :)

    1. I like tmm, hard to photo but great for getting textures and age and wear :)


By all means have your say, but please keep it civil.
