So with the models arriving I decided to do the Africa Corps paint scheme as I really like the scheme and the idea of tank battles in the desert (thanks to Alessio's armoured platoon this is now possible). I also wanted to try a few new tricks and here they are:
Next I primed the vechicles with German uniform grey (from Warlord). With the paint dry I then applied Hairspray, why your see later.
I then sprayed on the next colour middlestone (warlord 882). This was done lightly so the base colour could be seen through to represent a quick spray job to get the vehicles into the field see below.
The next paint to go on was German camo orange (warlord 823) This like the last paint was applied lightly and the previous two colours could show through on places.
Finally a light brown was applied to break up the pattern as you can see they have a factory fresh look that just wont do so it was time to make them look worn.
So thats it just a few little finishing touches to do I just thought I would share this with you. I really enjoyed doing the above and cant wait to try out these techniques again. Once these are done I best get back to my vampires
