A new week has started today (with some heavy clouds above the Athenian sky), with me trying to paint as much as possible, while trying to run a house, its errants, some extra work and a girlfriend!
From my last post, most of you have seen the kits I bought last week, so these past couple of days were 'washing, priming, painting, weathering, varnishing' and some more! Going mental, to say the least! :-)
Mental I went, but not in vain. I managed to prepare most of them and I actually managed to finish Zvezda's kit #6115 - 37mm AA Gun. In addition to that, while painting it, I took photos in every stage of the process, so as to upload a post with a tutorial to use it as a reference, if you think it may be of any use to you.
So, enough with the talking, let's move on to the photo scroll...
After assembling the model, I used some FOW War Spray (Soviet Armour), to prime it.
After the priming, I used some GW washes (Badab Black and Nuln Oil don't worry, it's the same wash - it's the never ending new policy from Citadel - same products, different names, pls don't get me started...).
After the washes, I used VMC 70.894 Russian Green, to drybrush (heavily mannered) the model.
Carrying on with the drubrushing process, I then used VMC 70.924 Russian Uniform, to drybrush the model, in order to start giving 'depth' to the various layers of surfaces of the model. You can see at this stage, that colours are beginning to get more distinctive, and they start to show the details of the model.
For the final part of the drybrushing process, I used some VMC 70. Green Grey, to drybrush (lightly) the model. You can now see, the nearly finished model.
I used some VMG 70.862 Black Grey to paint the tyres.
Step 7. After some weathering (painting some Black and Brown washes), in order to give a 'dirty' look, the model is ready to get on the table and be used (for wargames purposes)!
I haven't post any details regarding the figs' painting procedure - one of my following posts, will be a relevant tutorial for my Russian comrades - so stay tuned! :-)
I hope you found this tutorial useful.
Have a great day guys!
