The Random Ramblings Of A Wargamer And Painter (OHQ Painting Service) Of Associated Miniatures

Thursday, 30 January 2014


Introducing "Bertie" my MkIV from the Great War Miniatures range. Painted with a base coat of Vallejo English Uniform then over sprayed with Vallejo Panzer Aces British Tanker, washed with Citadel Agrax Earthshade then after a matt varnish a Mig filter was applied before dry brushing. The tracks were painted with a mix of Vallejo black brown and German grey, then dry brushed with German grey with silver grey added. The exhaust was first painted with black brown with a little bicarbonate of soda mixed in to give it a rough texture it was then dry brushed with rust brown mix, finally Bertie was dry brushed with Citadel Graveyard Earth which I use for my bases.



  1. Looking great! I look forward to thrashing the Hun with this soonish!

  2. Really excellent, Phil! I love the bicarbonate of soda trick - I shall be stealing that trick very shortly!

  3. That is a impressive looking beast. Will have to remember that bicarbonate idea, very useful.

  4. Yes an old technique from Francois Verlinden, forget these old methods with all the commercial weathering stuff available these days, a lot cheaper too :-)
    Another I remember is using Holts car filler for mud.
    Thanks again for the comments and encouragement
