Okay so here I go painting my troop carrying tank #1. I could have gone down the route of GW and stayed true to "normal" Saim-Hann colours but where's the fun in that! So wanting something different and setting a challenge for myself I went for an actual scale effect on the tank. These first 3 steps take about an hour including drying time.
Here's the tank basecoated:
Next came some shading:
Now for the time consuming part:
Well that's taken me an hour so far. The next post will hopefully be a scale covered tank ready for some shading and highlighting. Must get back to it I guess. Wish me luck!
