Base - Space Hulk using Computer Circuit Board - Part 2
After looking at the base for a bit more I felt that I wanted to have some 'metal' showing through. I thought about just giving it a drybrush with Boltgun Metal which would give me the edge highlight I was after but then not the metal 'undertone' I wanted.
At this point I decided to start over and use a metal colour for the base instead of the dark brown.
Next a wash of 50/50 black and brown.
Followed by my custom 'Verdigris' wash.
Now you can see the metal showing through.
To finish off I used mt custom 'Rust' wash and all done!
I don't know how much different it would have turned out if I had just drybrushed the previous incantation but the metal is showing through and I think the result is better overall.
