Finished this Warhammer 40k Imperial guardsman Las Rifle. Started with the Nerf Longstrike took off the flip sight it came with and used the more military look of the recon flip sight. the gun was then sanded.
Next came several coats or gloss and matte hammered metal then several coats of forest green and a few coats of flat black for Pistol grip/stock area. Next came mixing sterling silver and metallic silver dry brushing to give it that dropped , beat up , dragged overall OLD look.
After painting was done I looked over where some paint had gotten under the painters tape and it gave the rifle a even more aged look. The final top coats have a rippling effect created to look like there is rust under the paint that is trying to bubble up. I really am glad that Spartan-06 is happy with this commission It was a LOT of fun to do.
