    Due to the great reaction my Iron Man Unleashed custom brought, including many inquiries into how I did the battle damage, I decided to do another. This time I really stepped up the battle damage with advanced techniques for detailing and weathering, and documented the whole procedure.

    Read how this figure was customized in the guide:

    Battle Damage Guide

    Paints used:
    - Krylon Fusion Flat Black
    - Krylon Brilliant Silver
    - Pactra Racing Metallic Red
    - Testors Model Master Acryl Gold
    - Testors Model Master Acryl Flat Black
    - Games Workshop Citadel Mithril Silver

    The painting procedure is quite involving so instead of typing it twice just read about it in the above guide...
    Thanks for looking!

    Wow, love the tutorial, very detailed, its awesome. I was wondering why you used georgian oil paints for the backwash towards the end instead of using just the testor or other paints for the backwash? what airbrush is that your using?

    thanks!!

    Thanks for the feedback guys, a lot of work went into the tutorial.
    I use the oil paints because they work very well when applied over acrylics (first sealed with Future for a gloss surface). I know there is much debate over what paints to use, drybrush with, wash with, etc. Everyone has their preference. The Georgian oils are also cheap and found at Wal-Mart and easy to thin. I'm not set in my ways and always open to trying something new so if someone has a better suggestion to use I'm all for it.

    My airbrush is an Iwata HP-CS.
