Superb work.

Love the grass and corrosion effect on the standard, really pulled that off well.

Yes indeed, that is top work! The corrosion and the soil/grass really give the impression that the skeleton recently climbed out of its burial. Contrasts really well with the pale bones, too.

Just gorgeous as always. I don't use rust effect a huge amount, but I've recently bought a bottle of this stuff -

- and it's amazing. You've got to remember to shake that bottle until you hear the ball bearing rattle though, otherwise it doesn't work.

The instructions on that make it sound kind of fragile for regular gaming use rather than "sit in the display case" model kits.  You had any problem matte sealer altering the color on you?

No, but then I've only put it on small areas thus far. It's kind of random how it looks when it dries, but that's why I like it, because it's realistic (well it does contain real rust dust). Nick's rust effects are gorgeous, but he uses rust on so many of the models so much, I thought he might like to play with it like I did! They also do a verdigris one.

Thanks cubs, I found a retailer here in Sweden carrying the stuff. I'll give it a try on some future project, although I think I'll stick with my current technique for these skeletons for consistency.

Posting a pic of the backside as well. A lot of work went into the stippled texture of the cape so it would be a shame not to show it off.

Lovely cloth texture effect there, just like a woollen cloak.

Yeah, it makes sense to keep your technique consistent but it is fun stuff to use and you just slosh it on and wait for it to dry! It's like a chemistry experiment, watching the different colours form. I think it's designed mainly for use on larger surfaces, like vehicles and such, but it does work on smaller stuff too.
