…and already this dirty?!

Two Armourfast and one Revell painted and weathered quite fast. Hedge Cutter from SHQ, stowage from Goffy, tarpaulin covering boxes made out of paper tissue and boxes underneath is made of pieces of cardboard. Pigments are Faber-Castell’s dry chalks. Dry transfers from Archers. The steps I to go through to paint these is:
- Airbrush a base layer of olive drab
- Airbrush black strokes at every corner
- Rub on dry decals
- Airbrush a light version of olive drab in the middle of every surface on the models
- Airbrush a dull coat
- Add AK-Interactives dark wash to all details
- Paint the stowage and give it a wash of Army Painter Quickshade
- Give the stowage a dull coat using brush
- Adding dust using pigments
- Airbrushing a thinned layer of brown to take out contrast between surface and pigments
- Airbrush it all with a thick layer of dull coat
Looking good. I especially like the Sherman with the cast hull and front stowage pieces. The weathering on the Rhino blades looks very natural.
Also, congratulations on not ‘chipping’ the paint jobs all to hell. Like you say, it’s only been 3 days!
Thanks Arkie :-) US tanks didn’t chip, the paint was baked on and was really resistant ;-)
I had no idea! Good information for the future.
Really love al of your work, thanks for letting see us how you’ve made it…
Thanks man! Several times I have been wondering who I made this blog for, mostly myself I guess – but good to hear that other enjoy it too ;-)
