119 - Chimera Progress: Part 8

Another update on the Chimera's. But fear not, as they are nearly battle ready.

With the weapons and stowage completed, it was now time for some drybrushing. I toyed with the idea of going over all of the tank with a drybrush of GW Bleached Bone, and decided on just going for a light cover. It picks out the details quite nicely and adds a little bit of depth to the tanks.

I also added my "mud" to the lower parts of the Chimera's. This was done by stippling on GW Calthan Brown, followed by a heavy drybrush of GW Steel Legion Drab, and then finished with a light stippling of GW Baneblade Brown.

The tank commander was completed as well. I did run in to an issue with the heavy stubber, but that has been solved and it's position is now final.

I'll be giving both tank's a couple of light coats of varnish in the morning, before the pigments are applied. I'm not going to go as heavy on the pigments as I did with the Shadowsword, but I want them to have a little bit more wear and tear.

Thanks for reading.
