The Weathering Magazine - Heavy Metal

The Weathering Magazine - Heavy Metal Magazine Review

By Michael Benolkin

Date of Review May 2016 Title The Weathering Magazine - Heavy Metal
Author Multiple Publisher Ammo by Mig Jimenez
Published 2015 ISBN -
Format 70 pages, softbound MSRP (Euro) 8,00€


In this issue, there are a new selection of well-illustrated articles which focus on the the best methods to weather bare metal subjects. The subjects/case studies used for this issue include:

  • Some Kind of Monster - 1/35 JS-7
  • So Lonely - 1/72 MiG-15
  • I'm Quite Beside Myself - C3P0 of Star Wars
  • I am Candy (Color) Man - Gundam Warrior
  • Ogre Berserker
  • The Last Stop (Where Trains Go to Die)

The authors don't focus on the assembly or even scale of the basic models (though you can figure that out on your own) as they usually pick up the story after the model is assembled and some have their base coats of paint in place. Each author addresses the aspects of applying weathering effects common to using a variety of techniques including washes, pigments, etc.

This series looks very interesting, and each issue tackles a different aspect of weathering, making each issue a valuable resource in your modeling library.

Definitely recommended!

My sincere thanks to The Weathering Magazine for this review sample!
