I recently took the plunge into airbrush land whilst starting my guard army. I got some digital camo templates online at DIY Stencil Generator. It's not too hard for anybody starting a new guard theme.
Figured while i was at it i'd add a wip of my weathered valkyrie in progress...
(the one on the left)
Very cool, I've never seen digital camo on a 40k model before and I really like the idea. The weathered Valkyrie looks good too.
Thanks! My friend found a great instructional on the valkyrie here: Painting a valkyrie - akaranseth - Mathieu Fontaine - miniature painter
For $15 i picked up some inexpensive oil paints and turpentine, and i must say, it's REALLY easy to get great effects even on a first try. I highly recommend it for anybody going for realism.
I have always said that digital camo will work great on vehicles of that scale.. any attempt to scale it down to the minis is going to ruin the effect. If you manage to pull it off please share.
Great job on both the tank and the Valk...
I'm not really a fan of digital camo in real life but you did a very nice job. It looks like the real deal.

I thought the very same thing about Digital when third BN seventh Marines were voting on the new camo scheme... (My unit back before digital came into effect)
Well, lo and behold, digital seemed to be favored.. I thought it was a fluke, and still didn't like it.
8 months later the pattern was in print, and in full production with a working design. Surprisingly, the pattern works very well in multiple environments, where the BDU woodland print was out performed.
The pattern actually confuses the eyes and causes the optics to bounce back and forth confusing the depth perception.. You have to see how some animals react to it when you finally get close enough for them to perceive them..
I still don't like the print, but I like how they perform visually.. I won't get into the whole mistake with the velcro and the thick material, and extra pockets that prevent them from breathing...
Looking good. The brassy gold colour on the guns seems a little bright though.
