About the Project

One last thing my Armoured Infantry Platoon needed was the Support Section 2 item, Which is a recovery vehicle. Now my love of the Type Seven walkers means I wanted one as my ARV. Mainly because, It'd have to be able to tow the Fireball I have in the force, or my kitbashed Bulldog.

It’s been kitbashed waiting for paint for so long now, but with my trying to clear out some of my old Work In Progress stuff, I figured I should get her done too.
Silly me Primed her Black, only to make her Grey again.

After the Grey, I did the base Green layer.

Now I started with the shade colour, and then moved onto the highlight layers..

It was 1am by this time, but I did the hydraulic lines and metal stuff, and then hit it with the varnish.

With the dude on the other side of the HARV looking out of place holding nothing, I gave him a weapon, and then I thought, what if he was getting weapons out for the whole crew(except for that guy at the front, who has his already), maybe to defend the walker from a direct assault?

I really need to do the weathering, but as it’s a winter in Zverograd themed force, the white wash is going to ruin the nice modulation I’ve done.

Trying to finish it off.

The HARV just needed weathering, and so I started with my usual white washing(my army is winter themed), which because I’m lazy I did with the airbrush, which made it all far too uniform.

I did two layers like that, which of course ruined the the nice modulation. Then I just did more with a paint brush, which still looks pants.


Then I did the messy pigment work.
