Weathering powder.....Whaaah?!

So I finally went for it and spent $20 at my local modeling store for Mig brand weathering powder. As the case always seems to be, I should have had this stuff from the beginning. It's pretty much like doing meticulous drybrushing without the "meticulous" or the time the "meticulous" takes.

Yeah these things aren't cheap ($8.99 apiece for the ones I got) but they look pretty amazing. I have " Black Smoke" which is a really dark charcoal grey and "Rubbel Dust" which makes my tanks look like they were in Berlin in 1945. The Rubbel color is an earthy medium grey. It's a good highlight color for my semi urban guard army.

Here's my executioner (yes all the weapons are magnetized).

Another few shots of the Executioner.

And here is the Battle tank variant.

All in all the stuff really completes my tanks, if you ever look at the stuff and want to try it but question your decision because it's too expensive, just buy it anyway it'll save you a lot of time and it will pay for itself in terms of how much extra time you can work on other models.
