Just a few Cadians
« on: January 18, 2013, 07:39:37 PM »
I'm reworking my antique IG cityfight army, thought I'd share what little progress I'm probably ever going to undergo.

Starting off with my new tank camo:




In part inspired by this classic British WW2 pattern:


I'm not completely sure if it looks a bit more like old navy razzle-dazzle camo than it does any sort of urban camo though.

Here's how the infantry looks:




Mind that all of this is WIP, only the infantry uniforms are actually done. and the tanks will receive weathering to conceal glue stains and ineptitude.

Tank looks a bit GI Joe next to the Cadians who look really gritty and realistic. Love the Cadians. Tank needs light grey in place of blue I feel.

My Ultramarines are in a drawer.

Sig: The only thing 'done' on the tank is the pattern itself, I've yet to cover it in mud, dust, chipped metal and scorch marks. I'm hoping that'll make it look less cartoony. If not, I'll definitely change it somehow.

Cool, we'll see how it goes. The basic camo scheme is fine I think, just feel the blue is very bright right now. Keen to see it all scuffed up.

Yup! There are about 40 more waiting to be painted/repainted.

Razzle dazzle.


I like it though! And the infantry look great.

A better man would double check what was typed... I will endeavor to do so.

I like the tank camo pattern, I used to have an old Matilda tank with that very paint scheme, looks good and it works!

In fact it may a little more painting detail on that camo pattern, dusting/dirtying(like you said) will make the thing like "real" life    lol   :::cheers:::

Then make three times that. It should be enough for half the roof Glue

Ah, I just love the Matilda II tank and desert camo. Looks so epic!

Shit, it's desert camo. That would explain why it looks like dazzle camo, which would be awful in an urban environment. Oh well.

I really like the infantry.  I am not really sure what to make of the Chimera.  It certainly looks realistic, but its too dirty for my liking!

Yeah, it's a bit dirty. But weathering is fun and quick. Anyway, progress! Glacial, but still.





It's an old pre-2003 Russ, updated with a bit of extra armour, a plasma cannon from the post-2009 Demolisher kit and some other stuff to make it look more like an Executioner. It's not done yet, I still have sponson weapons, details, and decals left to do. I also have to make a hatch for the cupola, I've lost the original like an idiot and don't have any spare ones.

LOL why is it a knob tank?  I am assuming that is a bad thing right?
