Corridors amongst the Immaterium Sargassum


So I went away for a vacation for a couple of weeks. But I'm back, and with more terrain!

GW has been releasing some really great, and cheap (for them) terrain kits of late. I picked up the STC Ryza-Pattern Ruins (Really, there is an STC for ruins? How grimdark!). My first though was they would be great for the Immaterium Sargassum plans we have going, with full knowledge that I can also use them on the rare occasion I actually play 40k.

These were nice and easy to paint quickly. I could have put more detail into them, but I didn't really feel like it!

The first batch were sprayed with a brown through the airbrush. Then, I sponged on various rust colors; mostly Secret Weapon shades, but some Ryza Rust as well. After that, I sponged on some VMC German Camo Black-Brown, then several silver metallics to show where the rust was scratched away.



The second batch was painted in much the same way, but I began with Liquitex Dark Green and drybrushed the highlights on by mixing in an off white. I did paint some more details on this batch, since they're not covered in rust. But, not much extra work was put int to it!

  2. The power of the STC banks were that they had plans for everything. OF COURSE they have plans for ruins!

    Great to see what can be done with such sharply contrasting paint schemes on the same items.
