Astra Miliwhatsitnow Tanks

So I got me some tanks painted up for the second part of my 500pt painting challenge.  Including the last minute vehicle comms relay thing I managed 505 pts which is me in the clear.

Here’s the results.

Here’s how I did the Camo on the Wyvern.  I’m not going to mention tracks or guns, they’re easy enough.

Step 1 – Army Green undercoat and black striping

Wyvern 1

Step 2 – Brown Ochre stripes go on next

Wyvern 2

Step 3 – Lighter green stripes on top of green and also slightly lighter ochre on top of ochre.

Wyvern 3

Step 4 – Feather out the black into the other colours

Wyvern 4

Step 5 – Feather out the ochre into the other colours

Wyvern 5

Step 6 – Where the 2 colours meet apply a lighter spot colour (in my case a lightish blue)

Wyvern 6

Step 7 – A bit of tidying up and some more feathering (not sure you can see it here though)

Wyvern 7

Step 8 – Apply ‘magic wash’ (aka Aggrax Earthshade) liberally to the entire model.

Et Voila!

    Very nice. The vehicles for my Praetorians have an ochre base colour, but I’ve never been quite satisfied with them, so I might try your technique and add some green, black and, if I am feeling particularly plagiarist, even light blue.

    Hey, really nice work. I am wondering if you can help me with the full color scheme. what i brown ochre i’ve found are all more brownish than your yellow here. By any change do you remember what color did you used here?
