|"Alright you primitive screwheads, listen up. See this? This... is my BOOMSTICK!"|
My friend Patrick has an Ash costume he designed and wears sometimes to cons, and even though he already has a shotgun for his ensemble, I thought I'd make him a custom piece that would look more real. And with what better toy to use than the one Wal-mart carries that features sound and ejecting shotgun shells with smoke. The only thing this toy was missing was to have its labels dremeled off, screwholes filled, and a new paintjob.
"That's right, shop smart... shop S-Mart... ya got that?!"

- Tamiya Acrylic Gunmetal
- Gamesworkshop Citadel Mithril Silver
- Krylon Fusion Satin Black
The entire gun was given Satin Black as a basecoat. The barrel and body were painted Gunmetal, while the body was then weathered in Mithril Silver. The wooden grip and stock were given a coat of Panzer Schokladnbraun, drybrushed Leather, then drybrushed again with Dark Tan. Why did I use such a weird combination of browns? Well, because I didn't have any wood colors and I was trying something new to experiment, ok? Leave me alone.
