|A recent IS-2 I finished.|
Alright, so as a few of you may have noticed, my painting style has changed quite a bit since moving here, thanks to being surrounded by a ton of great painters. Now, make no mistake- my techniques will never win awards. What they'll do, however, is get your models on the table without embarrassing you! See my previous technique here: DAK Panzer IVs.
I've found that most model painting tutorials err on the two extremes: painting tips to make your toys look amazing, and those that get them painted as quickly as possible. With the technique I will illustrate below, you'll find that I aim for value. I want my tanks to as good as I can in as little time as possible. Queue Eric Riha, I'm sure there's some formula explaining this!
I have broken it down into every single tiny step, and while it may seem exhausting, most of the steps take mere minutes. My normal rule of thumb is that I should be able to take a company of tanks (say 10 or so) from box to tabletop in one week.

Anyhow, without further ado:
Note: My technique does use an Airbrush, but there's no reason you couldn't do this without!
