Step-by-Step Guide - Imperium SRS Tokens

Recommended Posts

Have your Tempelhof Battlefleet from Dystopian Wars pre-ordered, and are looking forward for your fleet embarking in battle on the rough seas? 

Daz has spent some time this week painting up the Imperial SRS Tokens included in the set. 

Follow the steps below to achieve this effect on your Imperium SRS Tokens:

Step 1 - I applied three coats of white using an airbrush held at a forty-five-degree angle to the token. I also ensured that the direction of the spray came from behind the waves as you can see in picture two. This will give us a solid foundation to create the illusion of water.

Step 2 - The token was given a coat of dark green (P3 Gnarls Green) from directly in front.

Step 4 - I gave the token a dry brush of pale green (P3 Sickly Skin) and once again ensured that my brush strokes were focused away from the front.
