Painting My IG Tanks

Sometime ago my friend Johnny bought and painted a Leman Russ tank. The thing about Johnny is that while he is a fan of 40k universe, the fella finds little time to play the table top game so he now ventures more on to the modeling side.

Seeing I am having an IG army but without any heavy tanks, this Leman Russ is sort of a "I buy and build this tank in your army scheme, you can use it all you want so later I can borrow your army for a spin" kinda deal.

Done totally by hand without the aid of an air brush, it is a beautiful thing.

Seeing his well done tank led me to paint my chimeras in the same scheme as his Leman Russ tank. I got to say, making your tank looking hardcore and having them in formation on table top is an... addictive thing.

Lesson learned? You don't need airbrush to paint kick ass camo theme vehicles.


  1. Airbrush is definitely not needed to do some killer schemes like this. Nice job, particularly the weathering!

  2. having an airbrush does make camo schemes easier to paint, but it's certainly not the only way to do it..nice job!

  3. Thanks for the comment guys.
    Now I only have 2 more chimeras, a manticore, a DIY hydra to paint up in the same scheme.

    May be some Leman Russes in near future... oh my convoy of IG vehicles grew.
