Warlord Titan (Part 10 - Collar armour and Shoulders)

 As I've been working through this model I have been pushing myself into areas of painting I've never dabbled in before.

I started off in my old comfortable way of drybrushing the hell out of it and painting armour in basically solid colours. By the time I had completed the model up to the hips, I was starting to appreciate that this approach - whilst fine for anything up to the size of a tank - was starting to fail.

The model was looking too flat and "slabby".

So I decided to try to vary things up a little and introduced the red & silver "trompe l'oiel" stripes and checkers. I'd never done anything like them before and (whilst I will fully admit my approach is very simplistic) I'm pleased with the results.

So I've decided to try to go a little further and attempt (without a safety net) a little freehand painting:





Stay tuned for more (if you're still awake 😋).

I've also added some shoulders to the model ready to hang some arms off and support shoulder armour:



Done some weathering too 😁.
