So as I mentioned at the end of my Badab report I went on a little forgeworld shopping spree, and after a two week break I decided it was time to get the paint brushes out again.
Behold the most beautiful tank GW or Forgeworld have ever produced... The Mecharius Vanquisher.
I've only just got started and after constructing it I have got to work building up the various colours. I've had to use new paints for this one and the hull is only on stage 4 out of about 5 or 6.
So far it was
1. basecoat XV-88
2 Reikland fleshshade
3. Drybrush XV-88
4. Drybrush Balor Brown
The light makes it look a bit of a weird colour in the picture but in the flesh it is a but less yellowy. I'm not sure which colour to go for next, I might need to buy a few more new paints to get one in-between balor brown and whatever the bleached bone equivalent is. After those that in-between colour and the bleached bone there will be another wash and then I will have to work out what to do with the rest of the tank. Im thinking some nice free hand and more of the bold red and white that features on my other tanks.
For the crew on this behemoth I'm going to wait till I've painted the tank and then see how I feel. I'm currently undecided as to whether I convert the Krieg crew, convert original Praetorians or make brand new ones with the GW plastics and various Praetorian extras.
I think I need to name this tank at some point as well, for that I will have to wait and see what personality it adopts.
Needless to say I can't wait to paint more of this tank.
