Aurelius Legion Tactical Marine Weathering Test - Part Two
Ron at From The Warp was kind enough to take time out of his busy schedule to give me some ideas on improving the shading on my Marines, see his post here http://fromthewarp.blogspot.com/2011/09/hobby-focus-pushing-shadows-to-define.html
Well I took his advice and tried to achieve the look he showed in the picture above.
I used a mix of around 90% scorched brown and 10% chaos black for the shading.
This is not the same model as the original post but a second test I did to see if the weathering effect was going to look good over a series of models.
Another comment that made sense was from Mondel 'GAR' Garcia from the Dread Pirate Garness, that the eyes on the previous model was not up to scratch and detracted from the overall quality of the painting. I must admit that I seem to struggle to get a good paint job on the eyes for some reason???
Let me know what you guys think, is it better or not?
