This time, I think my favourite vehicle in my army, aside from the Land Speeders. The humble Drop Pod.
It was really great fun to paint I actually like the overall effect. It's been painted with the most "battle damage" of all my models I think.
I have used various methods to paint these, washes, drybrushing dark color (such as Chaos Black) and more washes. You can see the effect in closeups.
You can see I used carious different washes on the metal surfaces. Normally it is not a good idea to apply washes to a large flat area as you could get a blotchy result, but since it is a Drop Pod that enters via atmosphere it actually looks good!
I drybrushed the lower part of the hull with Chaos Black trying to make burnt smudges left by the atmosphere entry. I also washed the lower metal part a lot.
The stripes on the doors were painted using Ron's great tutorial, alas I could not find a link right now. But everyone knows where to look, don't you?
The interior itself was great fun to paint as well. You probably cannot see it, but I painted the cables using thin lines of grey to represent the reflection of the light, taken from White Dwarf's Spave Wolves tutorial.
I like painting screens, can you tell? Those display status of each individual Marine mounted in the harnesses, while the top shows the angle of descent.
And that's it. It's also a break from the Space Wolves. Expect something... new, soon!
Also I wanted to start by apologizing for not posting in a while, but the I read this and reconsidered! :D
