Its been a crazy busy couple of weeks so I've barely had a moment to pick up a brush. Finally, after a long week I sat down this evening and managed to get a bit done on the tank.
So far the base colour is done, the tracks are painted and fully weathered and I have base coated all the detail black. I have also done some scorch marks on the gun barrels (my first time trying that but I'm pretty pleased). There are also a few quick sketches of ideas for the side panels. As with all my tanks there will be a fair amount of free hand going on, what with this one being twice the size the possibilities are great indeed!
On the right of the tanks will be a red and white stripe to tie it in with my other tanks. The question here is - do I limit it to the front square panel or the entire side of the tank like my Leman Russ.
The left side will have a big picture spanning two panels involving IV, Praetoria, an aquila and a Lion of some description.
The turret will get something on the side of the cupola and possibly on left side of a gun barrel.
Here you go (sorry for the bad light in the photos!)
If you have any ideas on what I could paint please let me know!
