Hi everyone. Im new here so bear with me Smile

Me and some friends has decided to make a Desert themed campaign, and I wanted my Dark Eldar to fit the setting. As such, I am inspired by movies and games such as Mad Max and Fallout, and I will make my DE like Post-apocalyptic raiders (sorta).

What I wondered was if any of you know of any DE with rusty armor or something that would fit this theme? I will start painting them soon, but I feel I must have a clear vision of how it will look before I begin.

I imagine makeshift armor and a lot of rust. Raiders with tattered sails and a battered prow. You get it. Anyone can offer some help here?

This is one nice "Desert Camo" Venom with nice "tribal" design on it, may be exactly what You seek. Or at least good inspiration.

Some inspiration of quite a different kind.
He has a tutorial on salt-spray-weathering somewhere in there as well.

Thanks guys.

A mix of the both should be what im looking for. The colour scheme of the first one and the weathered look of the second one.

Ill be sure to post some of my work as soon as I get the chance Smile

It designed to work for airbrushes but can be used with spray cans too.

If I can give You advice from my experience (learnin' the hard way, hur...), try to not laquer salt. Spray *paint* is ok, spray laquer (even colorful) is not. Gonna stick and You would have REAL problem with getting salt off...

I also would like to try with sand - same thing like salt except it does NOT dilute with water. Salt may make weird things with paint actually.

Awesome Smile

I was actually thinking of having more rust, and also modelling on some "spare plates" to give it a more "ramshackle" look. Sorta as if its built with parts form other vehicles.

Anyone know how to make tires? Like, jeep tires, hanging from the sides or something???
