World of Tanks
« on: August 23, 2021, 02:29:13 PM »
As this game is not strictly historical and I have chosen to paint the tanks with interesting skins (like you can get in the video game version) I figured this was the best category for this post. The World of Tanks miniatures game is good fun, easy to learn for new players, and does a good job capturing the feel of the computer game. That is why I own it, to get video gamers into our hobby. As such I gave my tanks a less then historical paint job. I own 14 of the tanks out and have finished painting the four American tanks and three Russian tanks I own. The Americans are painted like a red bull can just because I wanted to use the tab off the can as a stencil for the bull. The Russians are inspired by Warhammer 40K Imperial Guard because I happened to have an old set of water transfers for them.

These are great, very crisp clean paint jobs.

They are also very disconcerting, seeing historical models in fictional paint schemes. I donít really know why this is the case, and shows a general lack of imagination that virtually all WWII tank models are painted up in historical schemes, rather than creative ones.

Itís both cool and confusing ;)

I like it, especially the Red Bull  colour scheme
I am going to build a wargames army, a big beautiful wargames army, and Mexico is going to pay for it.

Once my wife asked if I could design a SIMPLE,
to make, tank kit for her class. A photocopiable
sheet, to wrap & glue around an egg-box with
a yogurt pot for a turret & straw for a barrel
was the result.

I gave a fairly detailed painting guide, this for
DAK, this for Normandy & so on. My wife just
laughed! I found out why later.
One was bright purple with yellow spots, another
pink with green stripes & so on.
The children did have fun though.

I do like the Red Bull scheme a lot as well. It really sticks out.
