Tutorial: Paint a Mauridian Starship (Part 1 of 2)

After many People asked me, how i paint my "MDS-Camouflage" (MDS= Mauridian Deep Space) i decided to make a small Tutorial about that.

Ven´Tara Class Carrier


But first: Who the Hell are the Mairidians???
Well, the Mauridian Star Empire is a fictional Race from "Cold Navy" - a Background Universe for Sci-Fi Wargaming but without own Rules. They have some nice Fluff for the wonderfull Starships from "Ravenstar Studios"

Mauridian Banner


Now the Facts:
I choosed a Model of a "Ven`Tara Class-Carrier" and the following Colours:


  1. VMC 70891 - Intermediate Green
  2. VMC 70995 - German Grey
  3. VMC 70870 - Medium Sea Grey
  4. VMC 70836 - London Grey
  5. VMC 70816 - Luftwaffe Uniform WWII
  6. VMC 70951 - White (not on the Picture)
  7. VMC 70950 - Black (not on the Picture)
  8. VGC 72019 - Night Blue
  9. VGC 72021 - Magic Blue
  10. VGC 72005 - Moon Yellow
  11. Citadel Foundation - Astronomican Grey
  12. Citadel Foundation - Iyanden Darksun
  13. Games Workshop - Dark Angels Green
  14. Games Workshop - Scorpion Green (not on the Picture)
  15. Citadel Washes - Badab Black
STEP 1:

The whole Model was primed white and got a Coat of "London Grey"


STEP 2:

After the first Layer is dried, i gave the Model a wash with "Badab Black" to give more Depth to the deeper Areas.


STEP 3:

I drybrushed the Model in 3 Steps: first a heavy Drybrush with "London Grey", then a brush with a 1:1 Mix of "London Grey" and "Medium Sea Grey", and finally a light Drybrush with pure "Medium Sea Grey" to highlight the Edges.
After That i added some shadows by using "German Grey".


STEP 4:

"Night Blue" was mixed with "Magic Blue" (Ratio 3:1) to paint the big Blue Patches of the Pattern. Note that the frontedges are irregular shaped but the rear Edges are straight!


STEP 5:

The Front edges of the Pattern now were lined with "Astronomican Grey" (first i mentioned to try White, but the Results were "too" bright and looked not harmonic)


STEP 6:

After this i added Linings by using a Mix of "Luftwaffe Uniform WWII" with "German Grey" (Ratio 3:1) at the rear edges of the Pattern.


STEP 7:

Windows, Hatches , Figther hangars etc were painted in following Order:
  1. German Grey
  2. Dark Angels Green (down from 1/3 of the Area)
  3. Intermediate Green (down the last 2/3 of the Area)
  4. Scorpion Green (last Highlight at the lower Edges of the Area) if this is too dark, mix some White to the Green
  5. White to set a reflectionpoint to the upper left of the Area

STEP 8:

Typical Mauridian Insignias were applied by using "Iyanden Darksun" (followed by a Highlight of "Moon Yellow") on a "German Grey" Base.
After That i added some small Windows by using "Black"


Well, this is the Result so far! In the second (and last) Part of this Tutorial i show the Painting of the reamaining Part (the Part on which the bracket is sticking) , Painting of the Flightstand and the finishing Details....

Hope you like it so far.....
