Forge World’s big Ork tank mounts a huge gun ready to take on any Imperial BaneBlade or even Titan. The Kill Bursta mounts a huge-bore Kannon capable of destroying bunkers and siegeworks with ease.
The last time I looked at the model I had given the model a double undercoat of white and black and then using a thinned Chaos Black I touched up the black basecoat. I also black undercoated certain parts of the engine.
I then drybrushed the engine with Tin Bitz.
Digging the model out from storage, I decided not that I would start again, but I certainly would have a different approach.
Usually with my Ork vehicles I would use a heavy drybrush of Tin Bitz over black. However I starting with my Grot Tanks, I wanted to get a different look and feel to the metal parts, and especially the tracks, a more rusty and dusty feel to the model. This is similar to the Forge World version of the tank.
So the first thing I did was something different and sprayed the upper surfaces of the model with Citadel Spray Zandri Dust. I didn’t mask the model, but the black paint will add shadow.
This is the first time I have used the new (for me) Citadel Sprays and was impressed with the pressure, coverage and colour. I like how it matches the pot colour as well.
I then started painting the tracks and most of the wheels with Gorthor Brown. What I really wanted to get was a rusty look to the tracks. Usually with my Ork vehicles I would use a heavy drybrush of Tin Bitz over black. However I starting with my Grot Tanks, I wanted to get a different look and feel to the tracks, rusty and dusty. I think the Gorthor Brown will be a good base for the tracks.
What I did notice though was that in storage a rear exhaust and a flamer had broken off. I did manage to find them and glue them back on to the model.
See how I constructed and undercoated the beast on the workbench feature on the Kil Bursta.
