War Walker Painting (2)

I was finally able to put some camo on the war machine.  I stuck with the colors I used on previous tank but added in some brown for more interest.  On such a large model, everything has to be that much bigger to keep it looking good.  Anyways, here's a few snaps...

I tried to marry the colors better by using my airbrush to apply a wash of Badab Black.  The result was a little dark but I'm looking for a gritty, well-used look so it's not all that bad.  At this point I will give it a coat of gloss varnish and proceed with paint chipping and weathering.  I'm thinking the base will lend itself to something cool...possibly something involving water effects.

As for the Ragnarok, I will be applying a totally different color scheme to it and to the Panzer Russes.  I have decided that I want my tank squads to represent different looks so the Ragnaroks will get some Catachan green and heavy weathering.

That's all for now, C&C is always welcome.

The war goes on,

Looking great!
Sounds like you're enjoying the use of your airbrush too.

I'm still a little shaky with it, like a new, eager driver getting his hands on a McLaren F1. Learning the nuances takes time but it's always fun to use.
