My first weathering on an ICONS OB1


Well-Known Member
Hello everyone. I had an ICONS obi wan and decided to do a weathering job to it. I'm not finished but I thought I would share it so far.
I used mainly Aluminum black and very little paint for the rust and House of Color candy for the brass. I have filed and hammer punched most of the wear on the metal.

I've said in many times, a great weathering can make any Obi saber look good no matter what parts are used.

Great looking saber there my friend, almost hard to tell that's an ICONS.
I looked at the pics before I read the text and thought, "I don't remember there being any brass on the Icons piece." Very convincing for paint. An excellent effort overall.
I''m going to try to put the hog rings in the handle and some more detail work .
I really appreciate the comments. I will add more detailed pics later. Its a bit harder to get the effect with aluminum than steel, someday I am going to try to do a real parts saber. I like the MR LE saber very much but I have seen so many great sabers done here (and more realistic) it inspired me to try my own weathering. I still wished I would have kept the MR obi though.
This is a great site with some very talented people.
I've been planning on weathering my Icons OB1... just haven't worked up the nerve to do it yet!

Great job!
