I'm going for a desert camo look for my IG army. My base coat was bleach bone, but I found that to be too... not yellow. So I painted a dull yellow over pretty much everything. A second coat so to speak. Anywho, the Russ got the same treatment. It's all pretty nice and uniform, and I can't even pick out any streaks, so I did a good job on that. However when I go to put brown camo spots over all the yellow armor plating it.. well... looks like crap. Very streaky and I cannot get it to look smooth. Brush strokes are easily seen. And if I water it down too much the stuff that waters it down (not actually water) starts watering down the yellow undercoat under neath! And if I keep brushing, even the bleached bone underneath that! Need tips. Let it sit for a week or two? Maybe then the paint will shut up and really dry solid?
<edit> I'll probably post pictures tomorrow.
It looks like your yellow coat isnt drie yet, so I advise you to wait until tomorrow before continuing. As for the brwon spots, paint a solid black basecoat, and then go over it with brown. This'll help keep the splotching down.
Yellow isn't dry yet? Bullcrap! I've left this tank to try for at least 3 days before starting the brown.
Oh... well, you didnt tell me that in your post.
Did you prime the model?
Did you check out my link? :hmm:
Try this: http://uk.games-workshop.com/imperia...ges/tank02.jpgSCRUBLAND DESERT CAMO
Start with a Skull White undercoat. Paint the whole tank over with a mix of 80% Bubonic Brown and 20% Vomit Brown. Carefully apply Flesh Wash Ink to all the recesses. When the wash dries, streak the tank with Dark Angels Green in a downward fashion. Carefully paint the outer edges of the new stripes with Chaos Black. Highlight the raised edges of the tank with Bronzed Flesh and Snot Green in their respective areas.

Yeah, I checked out your link, but unfortunately it didn't help. Basically it says "paint yellow.. and the paint green stripes over it". Doesn't exactly address the streakyness and incosistency of the brown paint over the yellow. And that's not exactly the camo I'm going for. I want something more along the lines of this:
Now that is a very pale yellow. It looks almost Kommando Khaki. I would try a 80/20 Kommando Khaki - Golden Yellow mix. For that. The other colour looks like a dark grey. So perhaps a 60/40 mix of Fortress Grey - Chaos Black.
The colors aren't the problem. Nor the pattern. In fact, it's putting paint on top of paint. I was just showing you an example of what I'm hoping the pattern will end up looking like if I could get the brown spots to be consistent and look good.
