1st Tank Off the Production Line!

Posted in Minis, WIP with tags , , , on July 19, 2014 by stingersix

Finished the first of my All Quiet on the Martian Front MkII steam tanks. A pretty simple color scheme – Vallejo Russian Green for the hull and Hull Red for the tracks. You can see what they look like ‘clean’ if you look at the models in the back there. The rest was achieved with drybrushing earth tones, dabbing on some Oily Steel and Rhinox Hide with a bit of sponge, and some Secret Weapon weathering powders. The coal hopper was simply dusted with Secret Weapon Exhaust Black. I wanted this tank to look like it had been fighting hard in the fields outside St. Louis somewhere and I think it does.

I’m pretty pleased with how this came out and I’m ready to go full steam ahead on the others.

After that, I’ll do the human infantry, and then the Martian Tripods.
