Finally finished my Primaris Repulsor tank.

Overall I think it came out pretty good for being my first military-type vehicle model that I've done in a long time. I'm pleased that I was able to achieve this level of detail without using an airbrush. This was simply a basecoat of Citadel Macragge Blue spray, highlighted with Calgar Blue and finally Fenrisian Grey for the highest edges, and then using varying dilutions of Citadel Agrax Earthshade wash mixed with Citadel Lahmian medium.

I applied the wash with a kind of stippling technique in some areas as well as specifically targeted areas where it was applied in broader and narrower brush strokes with the excess wiped away.

The other details are painted using a mix of Citadel, Vallejo, and Wargames Foundry colors, as well as one or two Reaper colors. I wanted the tank to look like it had been in the field for a while, so it's more dirty and weathered than Games Workshop's version. I also left a bit more of it in the original blue color than GW did. The reason being that if these are military vehicles produced in the tens of thousands I think of it like the way Sherman tanks were produced during WWII. Most of the vehicle and anything strapped to it would be sprayed in the same green color. I used that same kind of thinking here.

The turret gunner was base coated in the same Maccrage Blue spray and highlighted with Calgar Blue and finally Fenrisian Grey.
