In preparation for K47 I managed to get my hands on a German walker from the Dust Tactics range and decided to paint it up so it will be ready to field when the game hits sometime late July or August 2016. I have already painted two paper panzers that would fit perfectly into a post '45 type of setting and I wanted to go with a similar prototype feel for the walker. I feel like the Flakpanzer V Coelian and even the Leopard are the types of fighting vehicles that would be seen after 1945 so will form the core of my tracked force.
In regard to the painting I have used Vallejo Model Air 71.039 Hull Red modulated with an off white to give them the prototype feel with random engineer markings which I just made up. Over the top I have used the AK Interactive range of enamels and in particular the dark wash for green vehicles. Overall I want the feel of a force that is just entering the age of rapid technological advancement post '45 and is throwing prototypes out there for battle testing.
So next article on K47 may see us discussing the rules after having seen the rulebook but hopefully this has given you guys some inspiration to start planning some forces like I have!
