I have finished painting my Rebel Grots Devil Dog. This is the same tank I used for my tutorial series on scratch building tanks so you can see it from start to finish by reading through the other posts in the series. For those of you who already read through the series, you can finally see the finished product!
When I painted the sponson weapons for my Leman Russ Exterminators I decided to go with brass muzzle shrouds on the multimeltas to set them apart from the rest of the vehicle without going for too loud a color. I like how they came out so I decided to do the same with the multimelta and melta cannon on this Devil Dog. I also decided to do the feed pipes in copper, again to break things up a little. Both the brass and copper parts received a healthy treatment of Nihilakh Oxide to show that they aren’t cleaned too often. I painted the rubber shroud on the multimelta with a darker green to differentiate it from the painted steel around it. This tank was a lot of work to build but now that it’s finished I feel like it was worth the effort. As I paint up the tanks I am very pleased with how my Rebel Grots army is coming together. I have been working towards a 1500 point list. I have two chimeras and three sentinels left to paint then I’ll switch to infantry mode to finish the Conscripts, Priest, and psykers.
So that’s one more tank finished. I hope you’ve enjoyed looking at the pictures, comments and questions are always welcome!
