Rusty Bin

Moving along with the Gaslands vehicles I wanted to try out something different and see how the Games Workshop Typhus Corrosion paint works. So I thought I'd paint a rust bucket.

This was a simple conversion, I added a driver, some side panels/armour and bumper from the Implements of Carnage set, along with a pair of machine guns on the bonnet. Then I painted it in the Typhus Corrosion

The paint took a little while to dry, and I also gave it a second coat as it's quite thin paint. Nicely though, it dries quite blotchy so it gives an uneven feel straight away. When it was completely dry I drybrushed the entire thing in Vallejo's German Orange. This is a bright paint and I was uneasy about using it, but I needn't have been as it really worked well with the Typhus as a base colour.

The grainy texture of the paint was perfect for the rusted effect with the drybrushed orange. It's an excellent, quick rust application, especially over large flat areas. It will come in very handy for painting the underside of vehicles.

If you are interested, I am selling a few boxes of Warlord's 28mm Napoleonic figures, I have Peninsular British and Late war French for sale and all are sealed and brand new. The British set has  24 metal and plastic figures, whilst the French box contains 28 plastic figures. They are easy to construct, full of detail and a great price to start off or add to a Napoleonic collection! Click on the pictures below to see more details:

And last but not least, the latest video on the Storm of Steel Wargaming channel is about the Battle of Kampar fought between December and January 1942 between Allied Forces and the Japanese Imperial Army in Malaya. Have a watch here, and please subscribe to the channel!
