I made some good progress on the hull. Vallejo Surface Primer black was applied with my airbrush for a smooth and matt basecoat of black, then I drybrushed the edges with Mechanicum Standard Grey and Administratum Grey. Finally I used a sponge to apply chippings of Army Painter Gun Metal and Shining Silver (Leadbelcher and Runefang Steel). Overall, pretty simple and quick to do, which allows me to spend more time on the details.
As you can see, I removed the details of the front hatch and used plasticard and an icon from the Baal Predator sprue to create a matching design for the Death Company Rhino doors I'll be adding later. What do you think?
