@Goyder: Yea I hate all the sponson weapons except the Plasma cannons & meltas. You should see the lascannon on my latest Russ, it looks so much cooler than those last edition casts.

@Carrakon: I love all your tanks, esp the exterminator, what did you use for its weapons?

@Pax: Very clean, very smooth, very nice. May I suggest you paint something a different color, Plasma cells for example, as they could use some variation.

@Terra's Guard: Is it green, is it brown? WAAAAAGH!!! Im so confused. Love it.

Edit: @Peguin: Heres some snow tanks, but there not blue

From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered-
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile.

@PaxImperator: Did you use a fine nib pen on every nook and cranny for your tanks? Do you think it would work with a brown/green camo scheme too?

It's a far more tedious process I'm afraid. I first spray paint the entire model chaos black, then go over any missed areas with a brush with chaos black. I then spend a whole load of time painting the model codex grey, being careful not to get any paint in the nooks and crannies. Once that's done any mistakes or irregularly shaped borders between the black and grey are still very obvious. An edged highlight of ghostly grey strangely conceals any mistakes, I guess it just detracts the eye from the mistakes.

It's a very time consuming method but any monkey with diluted paint and more patience than common sense can easily do it. And therefore so can I. :)

I think it can work with any colour, just as long as you prime black and have primary colours that cover black well enough. Shouldn't be a problem with most browns and greens.

@Lieutenant Aurillien: I get that comment quite often. I'll probably apply some red and black markings exactly like those found on Sputnik's and Carrakon's tanks. But I'm more than willing to listen to any suggestions the lot of you might come up with.

Ok Go here to see mine......


Currently my tank collection stands at 24 standard tanks, 1 VDR tank based on the Challenger, and 2 Forge World Baneblades, with a further 4 under construction out of plasticard (Being an engineer I got to measure up the forge world ones so they should end up the same.....)

I haven't updated the pics of my stuff yet (I still have a couple of tanks that are WIP), but I do have a few pics:

Exterminator (Command Tank) Schlägel Von Urteil

Close-ups of turret conversion:

My beloved Griffons:

Vanquisher Conversion (Still WiP in this pic. Not finished painting).

I'll get around to getting some pics of my 2 LRBTs, demolisher, and chimera, as well as updated pics of the vanquisher, exterminator and griffons.

Thanks :)
