Warhammer 40.000 tanks II

After couple of years, I finally manage to finish the second Leman Russ tank for my Genestealer Cult army. This is another beautiful model from Forge World. It is a Leman Russ Destroyer, a tank hunter. To maintain certain coherence with the previous Leman Russ Mars I painted, I added air filters and the rear extension to cross trenches from another Forge World kit, as well as some track armour pieces. Choosing the painting scheme was not easy. I did not want to exactly repeat the same green color I previously used. After asking around and checking different sources for…

Spanish Civil War – How to paint a Spanish rural house

My last post was four months ago. Apologies. I’m still alive in the north! Indeed now I can say that I’ve seen the northern lights. I’ve achieved one of my dreams! Anyway, I have been painting a lot during this time. Different projects have occupied my free time. And probably the most important one is a new PaintingWar magazine focused on the Spanish Civil War (it has just released the issue 3 about the WWII US and Japanese armies, yopu can see here). The painting work and texts have been already sent, so in the following months it should be…

How to paint a British Sherman tank, and a new book: Painting Wargame Tanks

It’s a great pleasure to announce a new book published by AMMO of Mig Jimenez where I have actively been collaborating beside Mig Jimenez and Carlos Cuesta. The book contains 96 pages. After a short introduction about general materials and techniques (differences between acrylics and enamels, what is a filter or a wash, how to clean the airbrush…) you can find ten complete painting guides “step by step” of different tanks (mostly Germans, but there are also from USA and Soviet Union). The three firsts pretend to assimilate the knowledge showed in the introduction (we can say “basic level”), while…

How to paint 15mm tanks: German spider mech

While I am learning new hobbies (and sports) in this lovely Finish land, such as ice swimming, ice hockey or cross-country ski, I had enough time to paint and prepare a painting guide featuring an interesting Panzermech from ClockWork Goblin miniatures. I love this theme! In the past, I painted a couple of walkers from DreamPod9, and I currently attempt to paint as many E-series tanks as I can from Forged in Battle or Heer46. All in 1/100 scale or 15mm, of course!, my preferred scale. In this occasion, I’ve prepared a complete painting guide. However, I want to notice…
