Gideon MBT 004: Painting

I got started painting the Gideon by giving it a primer coat of Krylon Fusion spray paint. After that it got my usual application of paint for my vehicles: Shadow Grey basecoat, drybrush of Codex Grey, wash of Nuln Oil, drybrush of Ice Blue, drybrush of Space Wolves Grey.

Oops. Ice Blue? What have I done??

One can see in the above images the contrast the extra painting step added to the model. In the end I decided I liked it (after about two days chewing on it) and will paint the other Gideons similarly. Iunno about the next few Russes but eventually everything will use the updated recipe.

Once the hull colour was sorted I went back and painted all the bits and rivets with black to provide a good base for the metallics... which I am in the process of doing at the time of this post going live.

Stay tuned for the completed tank.




  1. Very cool! The ice blue gives it a little extra depth color-wise, I quite like it!

    1. Thanks. I really want to throw together a Sentinel and see how it turns out with this scheme... just need a Sentinel now.
