Over the past week or so, I've been putting a base coat to my Predator for my Death Guard.
Anybody that knows me will know that I don't really like working on tanks, so I tend not use 'em. Well, as I am working on my first 40k project in years, I decided to try and change my opinion.
To cut a long story short, it took absolutely bleedin' ages to even get this far. The surface area on these things is actually massive. When I get to the Rhino, I suppose it'll be slightly less irritating to paint, and when I get to doing the Land Raider, probably massively more (although this supposedly will be a fun conversion, so hopefully not too irritating - I'm not convinced though...).
Anyways, I primed this in grey. The greens are Knarloc Green thinned with Vallejo thinning medium in a roughly 3:2 proportion. The beige colour is Dheneb Stone thinned in the same proportion.
The metal areas were base coated in Chaos black, then given a heavy over-brush of Tin Bitz. Basecoat finished off with a rough over-brush of Formula P3 Pig Iron (I love this colour).
And that's that, the flat base coat is done. I'll probably do my first wash of recesses, edges and that later on today.
Here's a fairly non-exciting picture from above:
