Blood Rain Kabal signature patterning added to the Tantalus



 I got the fracture pattern applied to the main hull, the side vane wings and the rudder.  Its a base of P3 bone jack, a mid tone of Menoth White Base and a top highlight of, Menoth White Highlight.   I actually paint in the white blotches over a black base and highlight each one individually instead of working up a big white base and painting black lines over it.  I end up having to paint the black lines in the end to tidy up fuzziness around the white areas anyway  but I've never had good results with the patterning with that method so I always return to color blobs.

The twin forked front made it easy to keep the blob sizes consistent.  I find I always need a to look at a reference when doing this over several areas, or several vehicles ( I have a set of three Ravagers where one of them has noticeably different patterning which is when I started using the internal reference), or the size of the blobs changes which changes the feel of the pattern.
 The rudder has had some basic block design painted on and the red work up has begun although there are no photos in this batch.
I'm happy with the look of the wing vanes although I've noticed a couple of areas of clean up fail on the blade and rudder.  I'll tidy these up and repaint.  Fortunately the fail is on the metallic area in both cases and is just a little trimming/sanding along the edges which should not be too much trouble to repair.

  1. The fractured pattern looks superb. Very nice work.

  2. Thanks Sendraks!

    Its a fun patten to paint up and gives a big effect for the amount of work that goes into it... as opposed to the red areas (these photos just show the bottom base color of red so there are 7 or 8 more layers to go to get to the top red color that matches the rest of the vehicles I've done in this series) which take forever and are, at the end of the day, just red!
