Some more progress on the Venatrix Nocturna. The carapace, cockpit armor, shin plates, and weapon systems all get their metallic edging and I've started weathering some parts. I'm keeping the weathering fairly subtle/low-key on the highest parts of the model, while the shin plates and other lower portions will get more wear and tear.
I've also built up the base. I need to add the sand/flocking, but then it's ready to prime. Originally I had intended to do something more "hive-ish" with the base; something more industrial. But time constraints made me realize simpler would be better. I'm going for a more Istvaan III post-virus bombing. All vegetation is gone, the Choral City is in ruins, and craters filled with murky toxins (look for some water effects) dot the landscape. I wanted a nightmarish wasteland like, you know, New Jersey.
