Another part of the painting forays over the past couple weeks has been a revistation of the World Eater project. This time I wanted to do up some infantry using the techniques I had employed on the Dread. The idea was to paint white; but a weathered, battered white that was actually interesting to look at.
Obviously, size was a seriously confounding variable for employing a full range of weathering techniques usually structured for a much larger subject. In this case I was forced to minimize some of the elements and also chose to do a fair bit of dark lining along the joints and grooves in the armor to ensure a more consistent, solid looking weathering.
Airbrushing was also employed differently for these guys, with the blue and white components kept separated and assembled later after detailing had been applied individually.
I also ensured to employ a mix of iconography, so as to give a personal feel to each individual warrior.
Next up I'll need to finish this squad. I also have a fairly alternative take on Angron lined up that should turn out quite swish.....
