Got them assembled and painted with Russian Armor Green and then drybrushed with 50/50 mix of Russian Armor Green and Flat White. Then a quick blackwash. Tomorrow I’ll add the weathering powder to finish them. I think they’ll look fine. Right now they look very dark ,,, but most Russian tanks do look very dark.
This week I ordered the following new GHQ minis: W-101 T-72 TUSK
N-578 Challenger 2 (TES)
N-579 M977 HEMMT Armoured
I got an email from Channing at GHQ today telling me that my order was being processed today … so I expect to see these new minis sometime late next week. I’ll post photos of these the moment they arrive. I’m real curious what the T-72 TUSK will look like, I’ve seen a few versions of the real thing on the Internet … so it’s still anyone’s guess what the GHQ model will look like.
GHQ has already posted one photo of the new Challenger 2. It looks pretty cool.
I’ve got a pretty nice size batch of micro armor that I need to get painted. This batch includes some new GHQ BTR-T (#W90), I’ll probably wait to paint them until I get some 30mm canons from GHQ to replace the MGs that they currently have. I’m trying to get some of the BTR-80/A turrets that have the 30mm autocanon on them to convert these BTR-Ts.
All of the Abrams on the right side of the photo are the TUSK version, the ones on the left are M1A2s that have been upgraded with the TUSK bits on the top of the turret but not the extra armor on the sides of the chassis.
