How to do a Quick Shield

Now this may not be everybody's thing but I did a very quick shield for a 28mm Uruk Hai. It helps with my commission work for table top standard to do things well, but have quicker methods.
All in all this took me 1.5 minutes to do and I think the effect works - well for me anyway.

So to start
Black primer
Now literally liberal coats, not concerned if you exactly cover everything as showing the lower levels helps the beaten up effect.
VMC Tinny Tin
Scale 75 Heavy Metal

Now stipple pure VGC Beasty Brown - the pure paint creates texture.

And that's it - heres the look
