I still have a fair amount of work to do to finish this army (Stealth suits, Battlesuits, Drones, Aun'va, O'Shova, not to mention a shedload of alien auxiliaries) but I decided I'd start by getting some paint on my tanks.
I have 5 tanks in all:
- 2 x Devilfish
- 3 x Tanks that have been magnetised so can be Hammerheads, Devilfish or Skyrays)
I covered magnetising the tanks in some previous posts (here, here and here), so this is just about painting.
|Onto a rattlecan-grey primer I add a layer of Minitaire "Nautilus blue"...|
|Then a deliberately mottled layer of Minitaire "Werewolf Grey" (which is actually pale blue). I try to mainly pick up the places where I would expect light to catch...|
|Next I add some Minitaire "Snow White" again to pick up highlights and lighten the colour of the model overall.|
|Here's the model with the engine pods in place.|
