Looks like you're learning a lot out of this Paul. I always admire those who have mastered the arts of pigments, washes, mud, dirt etc, etc. Not an easy thing to get right but it's fun to experiment. Keep it going though as it is coming along.

im calling this one done for the time being

ive got to the point where i dont know what else to do without the risk of ruining it....i also need a break from it, intend on coming back to it after a while......might be good to approach it with fresh eyes

im not happy with the mud and im really not happy with the grass....the grassinator didnt work as expected

there will also be a part 2 to this as it will be used in a World War 2 GB in Feb

a few pics, one with a tank on to give it scale

the ground could do with some more tones to make it pop . also some streaking on the house will help, get that sucker dirty :D

once you get the tank built and come back with fresh eyes you will be able to finish it

thats the plan.....i just need a break from it then return when i have more of an idea where to go

the plan is to do either an anti tank gun with some troops in action around it or a flak panzer

at the minute im just scared of doing something and spoiling it all cos i dont have the experience of this sort of thing

Ya deffo take a break man, i just mentioned in another post, i did the last small sub while takin a break from the maskin on the stuka :D defoo the ground needs a bit of motteling or some kind of applied shades in patches to give it a less flat look, its a great start tho , the shades you used are nice and with a bit of patience it could be a really nice piece, id love to give some buildings a go soon, crap ive just given myself another obsessional focal point :lol: i look forward to part 2 of this :o)b
