Monday's menu: Salted Warcaster

I can only assume that he's served with cheese...

o/

Sell, my salt experiment on Lt. Moen is complete and the verdict is....I dunno. It does look all good & rusty, but it was really kindova pain in the ass to do. When it came time for me to remove the salt it quite often didn't want to come off, so i had to brush harder which in turn took some of the paint off. Or in a few places when it did come off (whether for the reason above or otherwise) it took the primer with it down to just the bare metal, so maybe this technique is best used on just plastic?

(sorry for the grainy photo, my camera isn't the best on focusing in so close on tiny minis)

The tutorial I used demonstrated the technique on an old rhino, which has large & flat surfaces. So perhaps this technique is just best for such models, or more likely, its best to try it on less detailed models till you get the hang of it, and only then do you try it on a highly detailed infantry model like this...

In person it looks pretty good though, and for a one off 'throw away' paint job, it came out fairly well I think, while satisfying my random urge to paint a warmahordes mini (and I do get that urge on occasion).

I showed this to Murl & the following (and inevitable) conversation took place:

Looks good, we should play.

No.

Oh come on...

No.

Please?

No.


At which point I got a dirty look & he handed the mini back to me, lol.

Isn't it the best ranged AT in the game. S10 ordinace barrage with d3 hits is nasty. It's also symbolic if the leaf blower.

Madival, I was being sarcastic.

madival said...

O..... I personally never thought they were bad at least XD

Madival has noting to complain about... He has those big damn cannons that don't move and monoliths.

I haven't fielded monoliths since the new book released and my big cannons aren't ordinace and are 175 pts. Also, they can't move and be effective. Necrons have good things, but they pay the points for them.

Why don't you two go & argue on Madival's blog.

CHOO CHOO! All aboard the Off-Topic Train!!

I don't want to go to Madival's blog... some goofy thing about pirate /clown Necrons... reminds me of the Imperial Forestry Service and makes my head hurt. ;) Besides, you are posting pics of a warcaster... I'd rather derail this fail-train. :) What's next Battletech?
