To make this force truly motley, I did not paint all of the tanks in the same colors, choosing to differentiate with various greens that I had laying around. For instance, #112 below, the command tank, is FOW "tankovy green" one of my favorites, and washed with a black ink.
Some of the tanks have not yet been washed or drybrushed/weathered! I just wanted to get a post out there to show that this machine is moving forward.

|#113 is painted in my favorite Soviet green, Krylon light olive. He does not yet have his wash on.|
|Clean as whistle, da?|
|I was playing around with battle damage on the turret side.|

|The vehicles on the far left, #150 and #309 are krylon light olive, heavy drybrushed with sandstone, and then washed with "agrax earthshade" which gives a nice, oily dirty look to them. This is the same treatment 110, 111, and 113 will get.|

and.... surprise? someone in "wargame hull defilade" peeking out?
