English: When I decided to paint a full 2000 point orange Space Marine army, one of the things I was really keen to try was more realistic approach to painting tanks and vehicles. 

The idea that my Chapter – or any one for that matter, that spends its time crusading to keep the universe safe – would have shiny, newly painted tanks, it just seemed wrong. So I included as many tanks as possible in my army list to give me plenty of practice!

I studied what other painters were doing and figured that, with an airbrush and using some of the same techniques that I would use on regular infantry minis, I should be able to pull of a decent looking tank relatively quickly!

I’ve now painted a couple of vehicles and I’m well pleased with the results. There’s much room for improvements and I can always get better, of course. But as an example, I painted a Drop pod in this manner in a single day. Not to mention these two Razorbacks and most of a Land Raider in less than a week. I’ll have pictures of the Drop pod and Land Raider in a few days.

I didn’t quite meet my goal of finishing the entire 2000 point army in four months, but I’m almost there. And I’m pleased to see that with a few simple means, I can produce 40k vehicles to a pretty high standard in no time at all!

Everything Roger paints makes me want to ragequit the hobby. There’s no way to keep up with what he’s doing.

The other day Max helped me airbrush a serious chunk of my Dark Angels army. A Dread, a Company Master, a couple of Vets and a Razorback.

We used Caliban Green as base, of course. Then, to get a nice gradient, we made a few zenith highlights using Waagh! Flesh followed by Warpstone Glow. And by “we”, I mostly mean Max.

This is going to be awesome.

Grotesque #3 from yesterday’s post didn’t quite have the “presence” I was looking for so last night, I put him under the knife and come up with a model that has a bit more character.

The large chains slung over his back and the smaller chains hooked into his flesh are from the Raider kit, whereas the smaller chain hanging from his fist in the front are from the Venom kit.

The right arm was tricky as the hand is from another Rat Ogre and the wrist plate is from the other arm. All had to be cut and filed to fit nicely and minimise the amount of GS required down the road.

Similar to my own, but taken a bit further! Wonderful use of the chains in the right hand.
