Adventskalender: Die dunkle Tür 17
Heute wird es düster, denn wir besuchen ein Projekt, das sich ganz den dunklen Ecken von Age of Sigmar widmet.
The Dark Age of Sigmar – AoS28 ist ein Online-Projekt, das sich primär in der dazugehörigen Facebook-Gruppe abspielt. Im Kern geht es dabei um die finsteren Ecken der neuen Reiche, also alles, was sich abseits der leuchtenden Schachtfelder und der regulär bewohnten Gebiete abspielt. Hier wagen sich nur besonders abgehärtete oder verrückte Individuen hin, und es lauern Kreaturen, die wirren Alptäumen entsprungen scheinen.
Inq28 explores the lesser known aspects of the Warhammer 40,000 universe and has been a huge success, inspiring Blanchitsu articles, numerous blogs and countless incredible miniatures. Inq28 has become a term that describes not just a particular game but a whole approach to the hobby: an approach that puts creativity and imagination first.
AoS28 is an attempt to bring that same approach to the Nine Realms.
The Age of Sigmar has the potential for all sorts of stories, and just because we mainly see the epic, cinematic god-battles in the Games Workshop books doesn’t mean there aren’t other stories just out of frame, or just off the beaten path. That’s not to say your warband can’t include a few heroes, just that not every hero has to have a duel with Archaon.

Nun aber los, es wird Zeit für Modelle!
Kürzlich wurde auf Gardes of Hecate auch ein Tutorial für einen der beliebtesten Effekte der Gruppe veröffentlicht: Rost.
By popular demand, I prepared a step-by-step of how I painted the rusted armour on my Shadespire Stormcast pair from earlier. I’ll demonstrate it on a spare Liberator shield.
I. Starting from a dark undercoat, the whole thing is basecoated with a darker steel colour. I used Citadel’s Leadbelcher.
II. This is then shaded with Agrax Earthshade, a dark brown matte wash.
III. Using Typhus Corrosion and water to help blend it, slight texture is added. This is done in layers and selectively, with highest concentration in the least exposed areas where moisture would be retained the longest and where it is least likely for the layer of corrosion to be polished off. Typhus Corrosion is of consistency similar to a wash, but with more pigment and tiny granules that add texture to the paint.
IV. Then the colouring of rust begins, first with Secret Weapon Red Rust. This line of weathering acrylics is easy to use and has a very matte, powdery finish. I always apply them in several watered-down coats to have better control over the intensity. Only as a finishing touch, where I want really strong rust, I use the paint straight out of the pot. A thing I noticed with these, though, is that they are always a bit darker when they dry, so keep that in mind.
V. Orange Rust, also from Secret Weapon. The principle is the same as with the previous step. Layers are added until it feels like there is enough.
VI. Going back to the metallic base, edges of plates and details are picked out with a small brush. On larger flat areas, such as a breastplate or here on the front of the shield, light stippling with Leadbelcher can be used to add depth.
To finish it off, I would certainly recommend blacklining between the individual armour plates to separate them. On this shield, this wasn’t really necessary, but I wanted to include this step in the demo.I often see people painting heavily weathered models in full plate without this step, and usually they end up looking like old statues. It just looks off, like the plates are fused. They would overlap, and move with the body, so there would be no unbroken rust deposits exactly where the plates meet in that particular pose in which the character was captured…
That is all for now. Severin Steelheart is in the works and should be joining his mates by next week.
AoS28 ist für mich persönlich eines der derzeit inspirierendsten Projekte, gerade auch weil die Community immer wieder Modelle und Designs veröffentlicht, die extravagant und speziell sind, gleichzeitig aber das AoS-Thema gut aufgreifen.
Es lohnt sich definitiv, immer mal wieder einen Blick in die Community zu werfen!
