Rebel Grot Basilisk Showcase: Tank Painting Complete!

I have finished painting the first basilisk for my Rebel Grots army.  I haven’t sealed it yet so there is still a bit of gloss where I’ve used washes but I don’t think it will change much in the pics.

This is definitely my best scratch build so far.  I think it’s the best paint job I’ve managed on a vehicle as well.  I’m quite happy with how this model has come out.  Next I will focus on the crew.  I need to build another loader then I’ll start painting them.  With a little luck I’ll have them finished by next week.

That’s damn impressive. If I didn’t know better I would not have guessed this was a complete scratch-build at all.

I agree, your best vehicle paint job and I think one of your best paint jobs overall. The weathering is great, the shading well done and the highlights are awesome. It all came together beautifully.

This is freaking amazing. How did you go about making the weathering effect? I have always struggled with tanks making the weathering look realistic. It seems the airbrush really helps make clean base coating.

Beautiful. It definitely doesn’t look like a scratch-build at all.

On a side note: why do people always seem to give ‘Grots a Russian/Red Star theme?

Thanks for enlightening me. That makes great sense.
