Hello all,

Well I have decided to throw myself on the grenade and seek motivation from all you out there to get my Krieg soldiers inline and ready for war. I have had abunch of my models just chilling in the closet with no real motivation to get them all painted up...I blame Warhammer Fantasy for that, LOL! Anyways, several months ago when I got my first 2 Krieg models, the two Grenadiers with Hvy stubbers, I painted them up as my test subjects. I think they turned out pretty damn good. I waited for a while before snagging a deal on Ebay for a Krieg army. (Everything you see painted brown, plus all the Grenadiers, Vendettas, and several tanks in the following pictures is from Ebay) I wish I could find that dude and smack him in the head! No seriously, He took all the models and just dumped them into a box and mailed them out to me. You can guess how they looked when they arrived..I was so Irrate! I spent days fixing them, green stuffing, trimming, the whole works.

Anyways, the time has come now to get these guys painted up. I have also entered into the 2011 painting comp to further motivate myself to get these guys done.

Look forward to hearing feedback form you all. I will keep you posted as I progress.

Maybe a bit more weathering? Some dust on the bottom of the jacket or boots?

Be proud of me I didn't even look for moldlines.
Looking good man! If I ever take on a Guard Army Krieg is definitely captured my attention. I am with djinn though, a little more weathering would be just the trick.
Thanks Midge!

No love Djinn...jezzz, I feel the hate! J/K

However, for the weathering...Im not going to mess around with that stuff until I get some practice on something else.
Wife while she is asleep is nice....

Dude You know I think your army is tits! Do I need to go look for mold lines?
First ever weather attempt

Hey everyone,

Well I have been Experimenting left and right on trying to get an IG tank painted up and it has become pretty frustrating. The pictures below are a Leman Russ that I bought from E-bay a while back, already put together. So I do know there are some glue marks…etc, etc. Anyways, this is my first attempt EVER trying to add some weathering effects to anything. I Figured I would experiment on this before I put my other tanks together and such.

The first picture was when I airbrushed the tank German grey, well it seemed to dark to me so I rebrushed it (the following pic) with a us grey, followed by a light grey.
I then spent; God knows how long placing 9 layers of badab black, thinned, across the tanks right side with a paint brush. Wish there was an easier way without it pooling everywhere. I only did one side right now because I wanted to see what you guys thought. I then proceeded to add some dust and dirt to the bottom half of the tank.

I’m not worried about the bolter and tracks at this point; I know I can paint those properly. My biggest concern I guess is the faded/weathered look so far. So…Heresy, I seek your council.

Kind Regards,

Good job on the weathering. I would try some powders for the edges and maybe a bit more in the edges.
Alright folks heres an update for ya,

I have been beating my head against the wall trying to get this tank right, at least trying to get it to blend in with my Krieg and it has been a huge pain in the ass! I am happy with the results, I tried a little bit of weather here and there and will be putting vehicle numbers and identification markings on the other tanks. This was my test puppy since it was already put together (Same with the other half of my IG tanks) and I didnt feel like field stripping it.

Anyways, PLEASE C&C!

Once I get some feedback I will try and get started on the other 14 IG Tanks...:suicide:

Thanks for looking!
Krieg is where it`s at, great work so far, and good luck with all those tanks, crazy stuff!:grin:
Very nice and smooth paint and cool colors.

Weathering ends to abruptly on the side, there is a seam that runs down the bolters and main cannon. I would add some wear on the turret from moving and stuff (since you have some oil build up). Add a small dusting of weathering powder over the glass parts,, trust me its the first thing to get dirty LOL.
Tank looks very good.
Good luck with the next 14 tanks!
Thanks Sanctity, Djinn, Calgar, and Hammer for the feedback!

@Djinn, dude I don't see where you’re talking about the weathering ending to abruptly on the sides? When I look at the model there is a very light brown blended into the grey. As for the turret, do you mean on the main hull or the actual turret itself and where at?

Sooooo.....Here is a little sneak peak for the March painting challenge, need to get these guys ready to paint since I might become very busy if I get this job I have an interview for.

Anyways, I did some work on the vox caster. I added two antennas to the vox to make it stand out more...I think it looks alot better with antennas.

I also had to make some cabling out of green stuff for the connection from the vox to his hand tablet. That was my first attempt at actually having to use greenstuff to create something rather than filling gaps, etc and I think it actually turned out quit well!

What do you think?
Yes but in ends evenly, dust doesn't normally do that, it is more random (higher in the back, jagged in the middle). What you did looks great, I am talking more realism.

Right on the turret it does not exists. I was saying as some paint chips from the turrent moving and roatating. That is where the paint is going to wear off of first. Once again realism.
Looking good DoE! I think that the GS cabling turned out very nicely. Looking forward to seeing the unit painted.

The weathering is ok on the hull sides... I do think some run off from the treads is necessary, aswell as a devlan mud wash on the treads to make them dirty. The treads are the part that make the tank dirty and mud or dust gets kicked up as far as the top of the turret. The crew are also legendary for dirtying up a tank, trust me... on exercise we would leave the welcome mat at home and all things were game... deer shit, mud, moose shit pine tree needles were all over the place by the time we hit the wash racks... Larry is right, the turret needs some dirtying up.. some chipping from small arms fire and the like would be good.
Alright folks, March seemed to be a very very busy month, however, all things aside I have finally finished the 143rds Command HQ unit.

I have included some individual pics as well as the Command HQ with their Commissar, enjoy!

If you could only see them in-person.

Please C&C, Thanks a bunch!
Cheyne they look great, pics are a bit fuzzy but overall the effect looks good on them. I love the worn look on the commanders leather jacket.
I am with djinn, they look great man, the Commander and Banner Bearer especially!
Hey everyone,

This month I am going to just do another squad of Krieg Infantry for the April painting comp, IG need their infantry and the Krieg have many!

I have converted 3 of the guardsmen to have Vox casters, two of which will replace a guardsmen from the other two previous squads. That way each squad has a Vox.


I will try and do more as well but, school is kicking my ass!
I love this log, the DKoK are some great models.
