Following my plan, I previously based the infantry for my Warfare in the Age of Madness post-holocaust Magrav. I still needed the support vehicles.

Taking advantage of the pricing structure over at The Ion Age – where you usually get a discount for purchasing three of the same model – I picked up three Yellow Adder Combat Cars (wheeled vehicles with rocket turrets). I only needed two for the Magrav, but my Neo-Sovs will gladly take any extras.

The resin models had two parts: hull and turret. The hull needed a little clean-up, as there was some excess resin on the underside, and a few seams. I primed the models white, then painted them in a red-white-blue scheme suitable for a North African force with French heritage. I basecoated, highlighted, then applied a wash to each of the three color areas. The headlights were painted silver.

I imagined these vehicles being constantly rushed from hot spot to hot spot, so I then 'dirtied them up' with a black wash and muddy-brown drybrushing on the lower hull.

I named them Bibi and Fifi, and painted the names on the front of the vehicles.

That nearly completes the Magrav force, except for a few odds and ends.
