If Star Wars has giant space worms living in asteroids, then why not have a ship look like a giant stapler with dorky fins? That must have been the logic behind Bossk’s famous ship, The Hounds Tooth. I decided to paint my Hounds Tooth to look like it had seen some bounty hunter action, and very beat up for it.
After cleaning the model it was primed in black using P3’s excellent black primer. Better 5-7 thin coats than 3 thick ones, patience at this stage is key.
After the black prime, the ship was given a base coat of Flat Earth. Then a Chestnut Ink wash was applied only to the deep recesses of the ship. A light drybrush of Bubonic Brown was given to the model for a highlight. Then some areas were lightly painted with thinned Bubonic Brown to give blotchy highlights and Black Ink was used for leaky oil or blaster burns.
The teeth on top of the hull were painted in white then outlined with Chestnut Ink. Blood Red was used for the red lines.
In the end some of the grey areas looked too blotchy for my taste. I went over some parts with a little Brown or thinned Black. Then I dabbed a little Chainmail in the middle of the black to look like metal chips. Lastly, a very thin coat of Nuln Oil was painted to mute the model a touch.
