Welcome to the Tread-head thread. A lot of people have been posting up pictures of Imperial tank conversions recently, so I thought it might be a good idea to start a thread where people can post up their work and share ideas and techniques on modelling and painting Armoured vehicles.
On the subject of what you should post up in the thread, If its model Tank or Walker of some sort (pretty much anything with an AV) then it's fine by me - even if it's not Imperial Guard - as are bikes and the like, but do try to make sure any pictures you include are of a decent quality.
I'll set the ball rolling with some links to some of my recent work.
First of all, some much hawked around pictures of my Griffon...

This is a rather Large picture of one of my Leman Russes
Three of my Chimeras ranked up on display.
And one of those Chimeras laying waste to some orks
And there are plenty more where that came from...
On the subject of painting, how do you guys go about applying camoflage to your tanks. Personally I think that 40K scale vehicles are a bit too small for Airbrush work (without using an expensive airbrush) so I stipple paint on to get a feathered edge. What about the rest of you.
Also, where do you get your inspiration for you tanks colour scheme from, the tanks you can see pictured here all carry a Green on Green camo sheme copied from early British WWII tanks.
