15-16 – Glowing effects

Add glowing effects onto the jetpack, I used the Army Painter Drybrush BR7015 with the army painter Voidshield Blue. I used the least amount of paint possible and did multiple layers.

17 – Details of the reactor zone

I used Deep Blue from Army painter for the base color and then I applied thin layers, adding more and more towards the center with Ultramarine Blue from Army painter afterwards I used Voidshield blue from army painter and then I finished it with a dot or a line of white in the center.

18-19 – Add effects on the flamethrower

A Black dry brush the clique, after that the model is ready for varnish.

20-26 – Final Touches

I put some gloss varnish on the windows and the jetpack reactor zone and finished the base. For the base I used Army Painter Brown Battleground and the grass tufts are from the Army Painter Highland tuft.
