Dystopisn Wars - Aristotle Battleship pt.3

Hi everyone,

Well after the disappointment of the last post I am back with the ill-fated Aristotle Battleship.  I had a day off this week and I dedicated it to Dystopian Wars' models.  Among the models I worked on was this one.

I have to say I was sorely tempted to throw it into the dip, strip it and start all over again - but the thing is, this model is a gaming piece.  Not only that, it is not even a type of model I keep on display, unlike my Space Wolves which are gaming pieces but which I still keep in my showcase.

This is the type of model I keep stored and take out only when gaming. So I decided to look at the frosting in a different light.  Instead of throwing in the towel, I decided to look at it as an extra coat of paint - a filter as they say in the military modeling side of things.
This way, I decided, I would go over only the metallic parts and the blue and green camo.  The rest I left as is.  This reduced the work a lot.  Then I proceeded to give the other areas some controlled light washes, like the planks for example, as well as the grooves on the sides.
When this was finished, I proceeded to add the last details like the energy effects along the piping, the turrets, and the particle cannon. As well as the red of the funnels.  I did not have enough time to take pictures of the finished product, but I will do so tomorrow or the day after. 
Overall it did not come out all that bad, even if it was not exactly how it should have been.  Nonetheless, I am happy I did not have to strip it bare and start from scratch.
Well, as usual, that is all for tonight, until I post again, farewell and good health,
