Thanks MD, I'm pretty happy with how he turned out. I might go back and try and add a little weathering powder/dust to his lower legs at a later time, but I want to practice a bit first since I've only used it on bases so far.

Ah wethering powders, my arche enemy.
Well good luck with the practice, I've been trying to get it right for a couple of years and I still can't work it out.
And the other side is now about done: I'm debating if I should 'write' some things on those white patches. But my free-handing is even worse than my handwriting, so it might not turn out well. I also want to avoid my standard tactic of 'add some squigly lines' to make it look like something was written on it.
Thanks! I might go squigly lines after all; it looks unfinished with just the white patches.
The gold is based with 'Rhinox Hide', which I then layered with 'Mournfang Brown'. Then a layer of 'Balor Brown' with a bit of Mournfang mixed into it, followed by pure Balor Brown. Then highlights with 'Screaming Skull' and a final highlight of white.
I've completed all scrubbing/sanding related duties last night. There's a few spots that won't budge, if they show through the primer I'll either cover them with stowage or see if can pass them off as battle damage.
Whilst looking for spare tank tracks I also found most of a 5th chimera. It was in pretty bad shape though some I'm trying my hand at one of those conversion where you cut down the rear and set back the turret. If it works out I might run it as a Salamander, or a chimera for the company commander.
Colour scheme is going to be a fairly simple desert tan, I do want to try and weather them a bit more than I usually do though. Just to make them a bit more visually interesting.
I'm thinking some sponged chipping for sure, but I also want to play with weathering powders a little. And I might add some rust in places.
For now the wash is still drying, the thinner I used for my oil paint is taking forever to evaporate. Good to know for the future.. but a bit dissapointing to find out after you've slathered it on 4 tanks.
