Update-painting continues

Here is
inf at stage 1, all base colors Stage 2, with peat brown ink and magic wash.

stage 2 detail
a comparison of washes- the top KV is a dark brown GW ink/water wash vs. the bottom with W&N peat brown ink and Magic wash. really no comparison....the magic wash rules.

I am working to get at least 1500-2000 pts painted into a "table-top-gaming std" paint level before mid june. 7 T34, 1 inf. coy, 6 stuarts, 3 su 122, 3 ba-10, 3 kv1, are assembled and in some stage of painting.
I may try and get a few more tanks or AA trucksor an 37 mm AA battery and maybe a Mortar company done as well, time permitting...

painting begins...

I have begun to do some painting. I have an infantry company(tank riders for the tankovy batalion) based, and now under coated.

the kvs and su122s have been undercoated and spray painted with a "Basil" colored spray paint.

I tried washing the tanks with black, I am not sure I like the look, I may try a brown wash next.

the infantry wearing their base coat. Im trying a modified "six minute" painting method; basically basecoat, topcoat detail, wash, highlight... stage one complete.

the rest of my order arrived, so now I have over 20 more tanks to assemble...
