Tankageddon - Painting update

A quick post for today with an update on my tank painting.

Rather ambitiously I have 5 tanks to paint before the LGT Horus Heresy on 19th and 20th May 2018. As it stands I have 10 days...

Not only do I have to paint those tanks, but also a load of infantry. Anyway one musn’t grumble, Praetorian stiff upper lip and all that, lets get it all done! Huzzah!

Here are the tanks as they currently stand. The main colour is done bar one final wash which makes them a little less yellow and gives them a nice finish. Next step will be the tracks and anything black/metal. I may have to take a view on tank markings and save that for a later date, priority will be get enough finished and then get stuck into the infantry.

Wish me luck!
