Terrain Day! - Crashed Aquila Lander

On a whim I decided to go ahead and paint one of the two Crashed Aquila Landers that I have.  I think it turned out pretty well.

Here's the paint scheme...
  1. Prime everything blank.
  2. The blue areas...
    1. Overbrush of Macragge Blue.  An overbrush is like a drybrush, but with more paint.  Make is sloppy, but even.  This should leave lots of black in the cracks.
    2. Heavy drybrush of Caledor Sky
    3. Drybrush Calgar Blue
    4. Light Edge drybrush Fenrisian Grey
  3. The metal areas...
    1. Drybrush Boltgun Metal (or whatever it's called now, I have an old pot)
  4. The ground areas...
    1. Drybrush dark brown
    2. Drybrush ochre yellow
    3. Light drybrush bone
    4. Glue on some standard GW static grass
Start to finish (not including priming), this took less than 30 minutes.  If there is one skill you're willing to learn, it should be dry brushing.  It's endlessly useful.
