Imperial Guard: Tank Renovation Project (Part 2a - Leman Russes: base colours)

So off we go on the final phase of tarting up my Imperial Guard/Astra Militarum (whatever they're called this week).

For no real reason I decided to start with my Leman Russes.

I have three of these - two painted to my original standard and one simply sprayed black:

Given the technique I'm planning to use I can consider these to all be identical in terms of a starting point. My plan is to drybrush the muzzle of the BattleCannon and tank tracks with a metallic colour (I hate painting tracks black prior to drybrushing so I'm going to use the fact that these are already done) and then mask the tanks:


And then spray them all with rattle-can grey primer:
Masking tape removed after sraying.

I'm already most of the way there! Well, not quite...

In my next post I'll add some texture to the grey paint as this is very "flat" at  the moment.
