Welcome to Librarium Online!
Haven't painted a tank for some time, so this time instead of painting lots of small ones I'm going to have a go at one big one. It's been primed with chaos black (I didn't bother with pic's of this) and received a couple of coats of Tamiya TS-46 'light sand'. So far the turret's, fuel drums and exhust are not glued down. Neither are the crew and some of the stowage.
When finished it will hopefully look something like the rest of my IG tanks
pictures were a bit of a rush job, between putting on the basic camo.
That looks awesome! I could never take the time to paint one piece that big, my hat goes off to you sir.
It's going to get a basic camouflage pattern and a lot of weathering.
As for the servitor. . was thinking of having him 'plugged in' to one of the hatched engine covers, but after looking at it , he looks a bit daft.
I've put on the basic camo pattern, base coat.
Already painted the crew, though I wont be using all of them.
Probably have to wait for the weekend to get more paint on it.

I like the extended turret rear, really makes it look different to other baneblades out there.
Your choice of camo colours will look good when weathered up and finished too. good work!
But I call to God, and the LORD saves me.
Thanks for your comments, the turret is a bit bigger allround as I used a cast resin conversion kit. It has the standard stowage racks on the back plus a fair amount of extra stuff from the bits box.
I've given the whole model a wash of thinned dark brown paint and base coated the weapons and stowage.
I put in the origional top piece to show the size difference.
Started to do some 'wear and tear' weathering, will post more pictures once that stage is finished.
Also done some of the stowage
I'm a big fan of the color scheme. I'm going to snag one of those pictures to have a look at when I do my Baneblade, if you don't mind.
