Post Adepticon rumination... and tanks!
And that's when I realized that I hadn't painted a tank in eight months. EIGHT MONTHS!
I've taught my weathering classes and I've done some videos, but I haven't actually painted a tank in eight months. And so I picked up some "Flames of War" tanks at 1:100 scale and got to work. I also have a 1:35 Dragon kit on the table and several 1:48 simple resin kits on the way.
It's time to get back into the tank business!
I will, of course, continue to work on painting figures in the French style, but I'm a tank guy and it's time I started acting like one.
Day 1: FoW Destroyed Sherman - Base Coat
I will be making this one look long abandoned. Thus the extreme oxidization. Next up are details, pigments, and oils!
I have also done some work on the new plastic Sherman and StuG kits from FoW just to see which detailing techniques will translate all the way down to 1:100 scale. The answer is... not much. But I'll figure it out!
