Tanks again...


Here we have some of the work for the Weathering and Battle damage video.  In these first few images, you are seeing the shaded basecoat work.  All of the colors are made lighter, with the plan of darkening them with glazes and washes.


The wheels were probably the most complicated element to do the shaded basecoat with, so I put each wheel on its own pin.


Let's not forget all the extra tank weapons that come with these fine tanks from Secret Weapon.


I used a variety of products here... GW, Vallejo, and Secret Weapon washes and glazes.


Once all those glazes and washes are completed, then you move on to the rust.  After that, I did the freehand.  From there I moved on to the paint chipping.

In the finished images, you will see all the weathering with the powders.  The mud as well.  That should be particularly interesting, since I have not tried that out except for a few tests!!  Stay tuned...

  1. Oh that looks nice so far! Thye green is awesome.

    I've been meaning to ask once the backers are accomodated will the vids be available for general release?

    I must admit I have just started a small battle force of marines for a charity auction and I am borrowing from your techniques in a grab bag and I am really enjoying the process - and I normally hate painting marines!

    I hope to have them finished this week so I will let you know!

    1. Many thanks! Best of luck on the last of those marines! It would likely be October for general release. How fast I can ramp up production once all the pledged videos are sent will have a lot to do with that :-)

    3. Yes, I am also looking forward to the post KS era, since there are more topics that I want to add. We kept the original list of 75 down to 53 :-)

  2. Hi James! Looking great, I can't wait to see the next stage. I borrowed a small trick of flicking the mud solution off the edge of a piece of card or plastic at the model to be quite useful. It gives a great splatter effect!
