Document – Lighting styles in tanks II (Panzer)

It’s time for another free PDF document, the second part of the Lighting Styles in Tanks. It’s turn now for the Germans and their Panzer IV. Some months ago, we released the first part of the Lighting Styles documents, with the Sherman. You can download it from the Free PDF Guides zone. Now we’re releasing the second part, with a German Panzer IV in some kind of panzer blue. We used the same 3 lighting styles as in the Sherman document. This file is intended as a quick visual guide to illuminate your wargaming tanks with different styles, their pros and cons. Hope they’re useful!!

Lost Temple in 28mm – Part II

Lost Temple in 28mm – Part II

Finally, the second part of the fantastic scenery element, The Lost Temple, created by MorTap. In this post you can find how to build mountains and the frontal part. You have to see it!. Here you can find the first part: The lost temple – Part I From Mortap: MOUNTAIN To build this element we will need: Four 8x8x8 inches FOAM pieces Plasticard pieces for the floor White FOAM like filler Natural cork to recreate the rocks Filler putty Plastic plants to decorate We’ll prepare two mountain elements to flank the temple. First, we prepare the structure of each mountain with two pieces with an L shape. Then we fill the L with natural cork to create a rock aspect. We use white glue to easily fix the cork. We fill the spaces between corks with filler and we create additional textures. Once it’s dried, we prime the element with black, for example. Then we paint the full element in grey and brown colors using the dry-brush technique. Finally, we use some plastic plants to give life to our model. And this is the the final result. As you can see, both elements fits perfectly one beside the other. FRONTSPIECE To build this element we will need: A 8 x 2,5 x 1 inches FOAM piece for the wall Four natural cork taps (from wine bottle) for the columns Four 6 x 4 x0,4 inches FOAMED PVC for the trims We prepare the stairs in the middle of the wall. We can also sculpt some bricks. With the remaining pieces we can prepare the stairs. With the cork taps...
Weathering on 28mm Bolt Action Hetzer – Part II

Weathering on 28mm Bolt Action Hetzer – Part II

While ago we show you a fantastic tutorial Jose Luís Diaz “Porta”, about how recreate a disc camouflage in a Hetzer tank, using the Bolt Action model in 28mm (1:56). Now, you can enjoy the second part: the weathering. You can read the first part of the article following this link: http://www.modelbrush.com/ambush-camouflage-on-28mm-bolt-action-hetzer Once we have painted the camouflage, we can start applying the weathering effects. But first, we should paint some details. 1. Now we paint the tracks. First we apply a mixture of brown, grey and black, which provides us a proper tone for the metal, and then we paint the wheels in brown and green, such as the pattern showed in the book. 2. We prepare with some airbrushing inks a couple of tones which can serve as filters when they are applied by airbrush. These filters will unify a little the different tones we have used in the camouflage. Therefore, the tones will be something between the three different colors: green, brown and yellow. 3. We paint the BalkenKreuz in both sides using a brush, stencil or decals. Once we have finished the “basic pahse” of color, we can start with the weathering effects. 4. First, we have to define panels and details using the Tamiya panel line accent colors. We can use different tones of brown and black to get more interesting points. Once they are dry to the touch, we can remove the excess with a brush moistened in solvent. 5. On a carboard we put a selection of oils. The colors selected should be complementary to the colors used in the vehicle (in...
