I dug these little beauties out of storage with the intention of giving them new paint job in keeping with my other IG AFV's.

I first pained them, back when the models were first released, in a sort of Desert look with a 'sponged on' camo pattern. I'm going to go with a more sand coloured look and a fair amount of 'wear and tear'. I think the crew are OK as they are, but the bases need a revamp and I might swap the weapons for Las cannons.
I will try to post step by step pix on this one, as I've had a few inquires as to how I painted my tanks and up till now only posted pictures of finished vehicles.
Any feedback/comments/suggestions always appreciated.
I like the paint jobs the way they are, just to let you know. What technique did you use to create the 'splattering' appearance of the yellow sand color on the armor? Looks really good.

The colours aren't flashy, but they look great on your models. Props man, heres a rep point.

Thanks, glad you like them. I did the 'splattering' effect by using an old bit of natural sea sponge and dipping it in some very watery paint, squeezed out most of the liquid and just sort of dabbed it over the models.
My tanks and IFV's looked like this before I re-painted them.
Should hopfully end up fitting in with this sort of feel:
I know this probably isn't playable, I just wanted to see if the guns would fit.
I've added more weathering to this since these pictures were taken. Some of the paint chips are down to metal and added some rust and more dust.
