Whether to weather or not.

I've been messing around with my first Mercenary jack for a little while now - I've tried out several different weathering techniques as I wanted my mercenary jacks to be very different from my fresh and clean Cygnar jacks - I wanted these things to have a strong scrapyard chic and to look like they have taken some damage and also seen some years of use or misuse.

Below is what I have achieved - I am happy with the techniques although Im still unsure on my feelings towards to model as a whole. The usual parts of my painting I am proud of are nice clean blends whereas this model is definitely a lot rougher. I don't dislike the effect yet but I may try it out on another jack before I commit to the look or try to change it.

Any comments or feedback would be greatly appreciated.


  1. Looking great Luke, your weathering technique is very good.
    Lets see some more warjacks soon

  2. It looks good bud!

    Just a thought, but given the pirate theme, perhaps a salt crust effect on parts of the jacks?

  3. Thanks guys.

    Mark, what do you mean by salt crust? I like the sound of it but can't really think of what you mean - could you find an example image?


  4. BAM!
