At least seven coats......
Pretty much only because I came up from dark red. This was full a Blood Angel LR a couple nights ago, I'm reallocating troops you see. Instead of 5k of BA, I've got 3k of BA and 2k of IF.
The fact it has no headlights appears to be a rather blatant invitation to wire up some LED's
I don't know if I'm up for that. I mean...soldering wires I'm unafraid of, I just don't want to open that can of hobby worms until I have more of a separated work space for this.
List looks great and the paint seems to be coming along nicely
Thanks, I'm toying with the idea of dropping the heavy support LR and the veteran sergeant upgrades on the tactical squads for two vindicators...but that means buying two vindicators.

Smooth yellow is accomplished by cutting your paints 50:50 with water and painting many coats leaving time to dry in between of course. For that you'll need a couple beers to pass the time. In this instance I took 7 coats because I repainted this from dark red and that's dumb. Bright colours from dark undercoats...well, yeah. Dumb. The Terminator sergeant has one coat of the same yellow from a white basecoat, it's a little blotchy but it will only be one more coat there before I'm happy with it I think. The reason a tank so large might take so many coats as well is because of the large flat areas. It takes me FOREVER to hide my massive dollar store brush strokes on those big flat panels on the LR chassis. As for your last question...no. Not mad...just...a little drunk and obsessed with details like brush strokes.
Nice work ntaw! ive been needing some competition for my own IF. Is the yellow just the base coat of Averland sunset or did you use another color as well? only asking as it looks rather dark. And on a side note did that Powersword get there yet?
Totally just Averland at this point. I know it looks dark, but considering the terminator sergeant that I basecoated white is only just brighter...I think it'll come out in the washes. Plus basically all of the vehicles are being re appropriated from my BA army while all of the troops will be coming up from a white base so at least there will be consistency there.
Haven't gotten the sword yet, that will DEFINITELY distract me from painting yellow for a little bit. That Priest is gunna be sooo cool.
