Devastator Squad 3

The next Devastator Squad member, with the missile launcher, I used to experiment again.  I used a drybrushing of white over blue to create a "weathered" appearance and creating highlights on the edges of the armour.  I have not finished the base, and the photos are a bit dark because of low light when I took the pictures.

You can see the extreme highlight on the elbow and right leg (from the Marine's perspective) and the weathered appearance of the blue, particularly on the legs and arms.  The detail is also brought out on the helmet.

Deybrushing Boltgun Metal over black gives the edges on the launcher highlights and and overall weathered appearance.  Drybrushing Mithril Silver over the launcher tube gives that part a bright highlight.

And again, the weathered look on the legs.

The weathering is clear in the last image.  Note the underside of the left leg is "clean".  I am going to colour that when I do the base.  I am going to do something a little different with the base, but I need to go to the store first to get some stuff.  You can see the weathered and highlighted areas on the helmet, backpack and launcher.

It is a first attempt at some weathering and highlights.  I think it gives the Marine a more natural look than the pristine paintwork I've been doing.  Let me know what you think.
