I finished up my antiquated, poorly-maintained Warjack last night and while I was at it I experimented with two of the new Citadel Technical Paints.
First up Thunderwicket itself. If I end up needing it in my game Thunderwicket is an old out-of-date and poorly kept up Warjack that has been retrieved from an unsavoury part of the city of Corvis. I started off by painting Thunderwicket in basic Cygnar colours and then went back over it to weather and distress it.
So let me give you my two-cents on the two Citadel Technical paints I tried out while painting this model:
NIHILAKH OXIDE; I liked the effect I got from the Oxide paint but to be perfectly honest I was still a little underwhelmed. Years ago while doing a big table for Games Day I got an almost identical effect from watering down Hawk Turquoise. So even though it works fairly well I just didn't find it really represented anything 'new' under the sun. I would also recommend anyone using it dilute it before applying because I found it a bit thick for what I wanted, though to be fair that could just be me.
TYPHUS CORROSION; My experience with this was the exact opposite to the oxide paint. WOW! This stuff is absolutely fantastic, my only failure with this model is that I used too much, but that's a learning for me not a short-coming with the product. The colour and density is great and the grit in the paint/wash really gives the model a terrific corroded texture as opposed to just looking dirty. I can't recommend this paint highly enough!
