Greetings gentlefolks!

I'm jumping into the world of 10mm ww2 gaming and since my only painting experience are model kits I'm here to ask you all how you paint your armor?

I google'd "painting 10mm armor" and nothing popped up. I was hoping for a video tutorial as I'm a visual learning, but nothing came up.

Try using the words 'painting 10mm tanks'

I put the base coat color on and then do an ink wash then paint the details and then drybrush the whole thing to accentuate the edges.

Good advice from daler, excellent method. Only thing I do differently is a black primer coat goes on first.

I do exactly what Daler said.

Wombie67, OUTSTANDING in all periods, and Vallejo yet. I'm impressed.

Womble, excellent little guides there, especially the German which is pretty much the same as what I use, although I use humbrol 31 slate grey as my later war field grey, as it just has that edge on 'is it green or is it grey' shade.

Humbrol ochre is a very underrated dunkelgelb in my eyes, I use it in all scales from 1/300 to 1/72.
