Showcase: Steve Palffy’s RSO with Winter Pak40

Community member and brush-wizard, Steve Palffy has recently been wowing the Warlord staff with some of his latest Bolt Action armour…

One piece which particularly captured our eye was his RSO & Winter Pak40, set on a scenic base – Steve was kind enough to give a step-by-step guide to show you every step of the process:

Assembly

The models were assembled with an oval base for the gun. The RSO’s doors were left unglued to make it easier to paint the inside of the cabin.

Step 4

The display base is covered in texture paint before snow etc will be applied.

Step 5

Details are picked-out and all edges dry brushed in Dark Rust… the canvas edges are then dry brushed with Dark Stone.

Step 6

The tracks and breach of the gun are drybrushed with Natural Steel before a coat of clear gloss … I then applied the decals – and gave another coat of clear gloss again to seal everything.

Step 7

A wash of Oiled Earth is applied to the wheels and tracks – and a Sepia shade wash applied to everything else.

Step 12

After a coat of clear flat, the figures are placed onto the Pak 40 base….and the project is complete!
