Basecoat for the Victorian Science Fiction Steam Tank

Having finished off the tracks on the Ironclad Miniatures Victorian Science Fiction Steam Tank with Citadel Chaos Black, I gave the hull and turret a basecoat of Vallejo Middlestone.

As this is going to be a steam tank used in an Old West setting I decided to go with a desert theme, rather than the standard grey you often see with Victorian Science Fiction steam vehicles. Dry assembling the model it is starting to look the part.

Still, as you compare it with a 25mm Old West figure from Foundry it is quite big.

I want to ensure that there is a gap between the tracks and the hull, this I did think initially I would use some plasticard, but I couldn’t find anything suitable so I think I am going to have to use four five pence pieces
