Panzers

Four Panzers ready for Kursk.  Panther by Rubicon.  PZ IV by Warlord.

I followed a tuturial  to learn how to apply the camo scheme.

Paint plan

  • Spray base color of Bronze Yellow (Liquitex)
  • Two coats of Middlestone (Flames of War)
  • Wash of Dark Sepia
  • Reflective Green (Vallejo) and Ruddy Brown (Reaper) mixed with Terrain Khaki (Reaper) used for Cammo
  • Top coat of Middlestone/Terrain Khaki
  • Wallnut Brown (Reaper) with Oily Steel (Vallejo) used for the tracks
  • Rust effects created with Wallnut base followed by Rust (Vallejo) and Orange Rust (Vallejo)

PzKpfw IV – with mud!

wp-1480382612059.jpg

Same PzKpfw IV from a few days ago, this time with a muddy under carriage.

Vallejo Pigments (Rust and Oil) applied with a mix of Matt Medium, White Glue and water.  Applying the pigments was an interesting experience.  First I coated the area to make muddy with the medium mix, then applied Burnt Umber from the pot.  After letting it dry for 30 minutes, I applied spots of Dark Yellow Ochre.  The amount of fluid on the brush is important.  A wet brush makes for a smooth smear not unlike paint.  A dry brush applies the pigments with the the grain intact.

Base coat complete.  I’m pondering if I should add cammo, clean up the wash, or just add a few decals.
