I wanted to use a desert theme for my new Ork armies, which would mean that all the vehicles would be painted in different shades of dark orange and brown but still have an element of consistency amongst the units in the army. Having said that I will also be painting some in shades of green as well, though the brown wash will help blend them in.
Having painted and drybrushed the metal parts of the Gunwagons, the next stage was to paint the base coat. With the two models shown one was painted Desert Yellow and the other Bestial Brown..
The next stage was to give them a wash of Chestnut Ink, Scorched Brown and water.
This was then followed by a drybrush of the basecoat to tone down the wash and highlight the detail.
Here are some more pictures of the finished Gunwagons so far.
The bases were Warmaster bases and were covered in GW’s sand mix, before painting Bestial Brown and drybrushing with Bleached Bone.
