Rusted derelict T-34 for modern games.

Rusted derelict T-34 for modern games.

Postby MacGal » 20 Apr 2014

As people say, any tank is better than no tank. This T-34 was last painted for victory parade in 1945, and its is no match for any modern MBT, and is vulnerable to any modern infantry antitank weapons - but its invulnerable to firearms, and its 85mm cannon is more than enough against any light armoured vehicle or technical it could encounter, which makes it very useful for any militia or insurgent group... if they can keep it in working condition, that is.

Its PSC T-34-85, built pretty much straight out of the box. Intended for modern africa and/or balkans. I went little overboard with the rust, but had a lot of fun painting it.

Looks mean! :good:

Can I ask what paints you have used for the rust colours - they look spot on to my eye?

I was mixing up from mix of black and citadel dark flesh, through citadel scab red to p3 khador red highlight, with some vallejo rust wash and citadel gryphonne sepia for good measure - to be honest i was improvising the whole time, until i thought i was satisfied :).

Great looking rust bucket. :clapping:
It's not worth doing something unless someone, somewhere, would much rather you weren't doing it.
