Getting Ready for HAWKs Barbarossa Theme Year

Buck

Several of us in the HAWKs have decided to focus on Barbarossa for a number of our convention scenarios in 2019.  Chris will likely run a number of LSNC 1941 games, and I’ll be focusing on Combat Patrol™ skirmish games.  I have recently completed these two tanks and a squad of infantry in great coats.

I started with Army Painter angel green and then applied a quick shade wash.  When I then sprayed the vehicles with Army Painter anti-shine matte finish, i got some crazing effects on the paint.  This is the second time this has happened to me, so there is some interaction between the Army Painter quick shade and anti-shine matte finish that I don’t understand.

  1. Looks good Buck, I’d give the Vallejo Mecha Matt varnish a shot. Never had that happen on anything.
