Games Workshop Tanks

Local Branch Of Games Workshop In Canterbury Kent

Having just finished the King Tiger Tank and having learnt some new techniques. I thought what would be more fun than putting the Scale Model Weathering Techniques into use on some Games Workshop Tanks.

So I have picked up a Space Marine Predator and an Imperial Guard / Astra Militarum Leman Russ Battle Tank and on the side, I got a spur of Space Maries.

I did pick up an army box of the Imperial Guards about a decade ago just to have a little paint. The thing I love about minis is there are no set rules to follow your only limitation is your imagination.

I have been painting Games workshop figures since the 90’s A friend got me onto them. I didn’t play the game I think I have played 40k no more than half a dozen times. I just thought the figures were really cool. Also, it was a fun challenge trying to paint the intricate details on such a small scale.

So this time around I will be painting them with an airbrush, so see if we can get any cool effects going. I want to go for a grey colour scheme on the tanks with a little bit of yellow and blue to add some life. The idea is they are stationed on a cold, almost ice planet. Almost barren, grey rocks and lots of rain and damp. So I want to add a lot of rust and some salt stains on the bodywork. Then for the Space Marines, I want to go with a green olive armour, heavily faded with white and yellow trims.

This should be a very fun little build I am going to make a few videos of it and hopefully have a few nice looking models at the end of it all.

And if these turn out to be as fun as they look there are a couple of other pieces from the games workshop that I wouldn’t mind picking up.
