Rise of the Black Knight Part II: Getting there, getting there....

Things continue apace, which is good, because I have a bunch of AdMech stuff just sitting in boxes waiting for assembly. Weathering like this actually goes faster then the Weathered Penny technique, for some reason. Maybe it's because of the Ghost Arks and all their little crevices, maybe because after doing it so much I'm faster at it now. Anyway, still haven't figured out his heraldry yet. The way his shoulder plates look, it'd be a shame to just put a wet-transfer decal on there. 

Maybe I'll do something by hand...

Happy 4th! (Rise of the Black Knight?)

I started working on the metallics of the Knight Lancer with the intention of making the armor parts a split dark green/black (a darker version of the Forgotten Knight). 

Then I noticed this happened. 

Usually we black over this to start the next color, but I'm really digging what's going here.
