Artillery Barrels

OK, so after two years I've finally given in to having a section of the FORUM specifically set up to discuss painting techniques, display examples, show your latest projects and chat about this vital part of the hobby. Manufacturers please feel free to post up your sculpts, ask questions about what the gamers are after and generally promote your work.. no charge! Painters, please also feel free to post up your work for comment and critique. I can't promise the unreserved adulation characteristic of some other fora but I would hope you'd get constructive and measured comment!

Artillery Barrels

Post by Glorfindel » Thu Jan 09, 2014 11:16 am

Hi chaps,

I've just finished off a French artillery piece and thought you might be interested in seeing a pic :

I am really pleased with the colour of the barrel. This was simply a white undercoat, liberally covered in GW Shining Gold and finally a GW Badab Black wash. The latter paint sinks nicely into the crevices and leaves a pleasing dusky finish.

Cheers,


Phil

Phil,

I can second that those barrels look very good, even they are not used by Frenchmens :wink:

The Saxon version of those guns.

The Colours are Metal Colour: Classica - Pale gold for the gun barrel, Humbrol Enamel Black, and Vallejo Deep Yellow for the metal works.
Ah, some Vallejo Oiled Steel.
