Hello guys and gals!!
I figured I would post up my Jakran "LR" tanks for you guys to see. It's 95% done with a small couple of things to finish before I slap some paint on.
So, after being on an extended run with IG, I've gone over to the one part of the game I never wanted to be on...
I play Space Marines!! AHHH!!!
Oh well, nothing like hunting fallen in the morning to get the two hearts beating!!

It's a turret. A TURRET! Got it? There is no such thing as a turrent.
Awesome work Greenbull. I like that LR tank LordOfWar

TASTE MY LIGHTING
In the FW masterclass book for one tank (Renegade Medusa) they apply chipping/pin wash and rusting, then matt varnish to protect it, then apply the dusty/muddy weathering textures over the top of that without any further applications of varnish to seal. Haven't tried this approach myself, so can't comment on whether it is effective.
hope that helps
I use the pigment fixer from MIG. It leaves a slight glossy appearance , so you have to dull it with a flat varnish... and then you have the mentioned flat and homogenic appearance.
The only sollution is to dust on the pigments without using anything afterwards,but that's only possible for display models.
Also good to know, is that the MIG-thinning sollution will dissolve the fixer.
WIP: Side armour to be done and a lick of paint won't hurt...
Autocannons *might* be a tad big... could be the angle, and then again, why not big?
Great idea using the rhino though.
I was going for the age-old maxim of "big is beautiful". The idea is that not only do they have to pop light transports and grav tanks, but also shoot down enemy fliers and/or bombers at higher altitudes, etc.
Plus I'm hoping it'll scare my opponents

Those autocannons do look a bit big, but then again I've just got my FW Hydra this week and was actually surprised at how much bigger the autocannons are. They did not look that big in the photos on the website, at least not to me. So yes, go with big ones, why not!
Now I am toying with the idea of what to do next. I want to start the Hydra tonight as it has been soaking in soapy water for a couple of days, (At least the rsin bits.) but am also thinking I've got that squadron of Basalisks that have been sat there for well over two months, also got some heavy weapons team missile troops to do not to mention 80 odd orks of various sizes/types to start on.
I need more arms and certainly more work space! Maybe the Hydra will win out though?
Does anyone have (or has anyone seen) a Russ with a converted Tiger turret? I picked up a Tamiya 1/48th scale Tiger I and I was shocked at how much room there is in the turret...
Naturally, this got me to thinking about doing a little conversion. I have a sneaking suspicion that a Russ would look extremely ugly with a Tiger-style turret on it, but I'd love to see pictures and/or plans if anyone has them.
That's some sweet weathering, but I have to say it does look like your tank just drove through the worlds biggest **** storm.

That's a great baneblade. Really, all the tanks here have been pretty cool and worth looking at. This thread is the only reason I visit Warseer any more.
The tread-head thread has really slowed down, of late. Many of the regulars seem to have gone on hiatus or moved on to other armies.
