Panthers work in progress

Painted after my son fell asleep last night so I got just over an hour in. The Panthers are now coated in their dunken gelb (?) and are ready for their green and brown cammo, I will add mud splashes when I attach them to a base. These are the first tanks I've painted in years and it was very relaxing, a couple of boxes from Italeri and my forces will be merrily bulked out enough for a game!
I think I took the pics a little too close as the tanks look far neater when viewed on a table...it could be my old eyes dont see as much detail as the camera but the brown wash helps me with the small parts!


Last pic is of some russian peasant type houses that will be on my tabletop shortly, plain flat roof of black card to simulate the felt they just rolled over roof boards and white emulsion walls these should be fairly quick to complete once I get started.

  1. Those look fantastic, the wash really brings out the details. Vehicles are something that I have always been afraid to tackle.

  2. Thanks Kiwi, I would'nt worry about vehicles-I've seen your High Elves!! they are amazing-much harder to paint than a tank I'm sure.

  4. Great stuff, I've built tanks since I was a kid, but may look into PSC's new T34s in the near future; looking forward to seeing the rest of your WW2 stuff.
