Default Workings of my Tallarn Armoured Battlegroup (Image heavy)

Now this is far from over, but I want to just get this out there for people to see. Please keep in mind that I'm not the best painter out there.

Command Exterminator and Vanquisher tanks






Chimera


AF Squad

Sentinel




Tank Crewmen






I tried to get a dirty look, like they've been rolling around in the dirt.

I love the green casings around the weapons. Nice choice.

You're painting skills are great! You've done a really good desert effect on your tanks, the Guardsmen and Sentinel are awesome! The green, well it's ok ;D

Uh, pretty much what Matt said; I don't like the green either. The tanks look alright, but they're very plain and in need of finishing. The sandbags are a nice touch though. The infantry on the other hand are ace. They're a bit clumsy, but decent basing and their blotchy camo pattern make them look great. You've definitely pulled off that rugged look.

Hmmm.
The lemon green is much too strong for this combination of colours.
But more than this the models look to me as if someone stood behind you with a whip and forced you to paint as quick as you can.
There are Forgeworld models and metal-minis..
Both are quite expensive.
Why don't you treat them as they were expensive ?
The colours aren't bad and your painting ain't bad, too.
I just don't understand why you made a kind of wash of watered down brown which destroys all of your painting.

Just take your time.
Drybrushing dirt on a tank is really nice, but you'll have to take care of some really important points.
There has to be almost no colour on the brush.
Take a piece of paper and paint the wet brush over the paper until there's only a little colour left on the brush.
Then drybrush the tank whereever dirt would be visible.
Also drybush in many colors.
A darker brown for wet and fresh mud.
A khaki or bleached bone for dust, sand and lighter earthtones.
The same in painting flesh.
Without beiing harsh... just take a look to the tutorial shown in "coolminiornot.com" or buy the painting tutorial book of games-workshop.
This hobby IS expensive, we all know.
So my advice is to paint slower and a bit better to give the honor to the miniatures.
Greetings
Wolkenmann

Looks good. That sentinel needs more weathering to it.

Looks great. Not a big fan of the green, but its still cool. I love the tank crewman. Your painting skills are pretty good, i doubt I could do better... and those bases are simply ace.
