Simple But Very Realistic Weather Effects for Scale Models
I love so many aspects of tabletop game modeling, but hands down, my favorite is the weathering of models and terrain. I watch lots of model weathering tutorials and can’t seem to exhaust all of the techniques used to create basic rusting, chipping, fading, dust, mud, and dirt.
In this video on Panzermeister36, Evan shows how you can achieve amazingly realistic effects with a few acrylic (and oil) paints and some airbrush-sprayed brown acrylic. He also added some weathering powder and a few additional decals, but those are optional. For most of the weathering he used only 3 colors of acrylic paints and 1 oil.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
