Xiphon Pattern Interceptor WIP - Heat Effects

Just a quick mini update, I had to share. I thought the Xiphon deserved a little heat staining on the engine exhausts and after a quick delve into the FromTheWarp archives from the talented Ron (hope he is enjoying his hiatus away from blogging) I found a simple tutorial of how to achieve this effect using simple washes.

I used Nuln Oil, Asurman Blue, Leviathan Purple and Seraphim Sepia one after the other, blending somewhat the edges between colours to achieve the pictured nozzles. Not bad at all.

The Xiphon Pattern Interceptor is now built, wings, engines and nose all pinned for strength and primed.

Great little technique I thought, cheers Ron.


  1. Looks good! I think you could make it even brighter if you wanted!

  2. That looks great man! Really well done, always happy to see the old FTW posts show up again!


For the Emperor! (and other Xenos welcome...)
