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.

The colour is very nice. Will you be using weathering pigments on this vehicle?

Also, what is that servitor doing? Chasing rats?

Dan

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.



The turret:











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!

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

Wow

It really is a big fat Tank! I like the progress so far. Particularly the damage and paint chipping that you have included. These things really help to give models more of a 'finished' feel.

Keep it up!

Thanks for all the comments.

I've base coated the tracks, and the stowage that's glued on to the tank; finished outlining all the worn/chipped paint and made a start on the weapons.

Finished off the basic weathering. Still to do: mud, dust, stencils, lenses and lights.

I think it's nearly done. Although it's only when I point a camera at it that I noticed how many bitz need touching up.









I changed one of the crewmen as the more I looked at the other one, the more it looked like a shop window dummy.
