Firestorm Armada Relthoza Battleship Complete

Relthoza Battleship

This Brood Class BB is in keeping with the “grey” colour scheme Will had in mind for the Relthozan fleet. The challenge was to make it not look too bland when it was done – and I think I’ve succeeded. The paint job is simple really, and I can go back to the model for future paint sessions for additional details, but it had to be ready for battle at yesterday’s gaming session. The paint process is below:
1 – Drybrush the entire model with GW Fortress Grey
2 – Block in select superstructure with GW Hideous Blue
3 – Pick selected details out with PP Menoth White, silver and Solar Orange
4 – Highlight selected, grey hull parts with clean, light grey lines

Didn’t get to use this ship last night though – Will’s Sorylian BB wouldn’t accept its flying stand – he has to drill a deeper hole for it. This seems to be a common flaw in all his Sorylian ships – the bases don’t fit their inserts well.

  1. looks awesome man, question. primed black and drybrushed grey? from the photo those greys look too smooth to be to be looks like you just block painted around the lines…anyway looks great..these ships are cool.

  2. Thanks John – I’ve got drybrushes for all occasions. This particular one was a 1/2″ flathead. I skimmed the surface of the model with that brush about 3 times – this keeps the paint from getting in the detailed lines, and eventually builds up an opaque surface. But ya, I wiped the brush dry every time to keep the liquidity of the paint from clogging up the many many recesses.
