Last Saturday I took a bus to Berlin and visited my friend Zaphod, met Mati, my fellow blogger Bloodmaster, and many others.
I didn't check emails, the Blog or Facebook, my cellphone was off and for the first time in months, I just lived happy from day to day.
While Zappi edited his DVD sets I plundered the Battlefield Berlin (probably the most awesome miniature store existing), watched tons of painting dvds, two seasons Game of Thrones, the thirst season of classic Startrek ...and painted for one week.
Back in the old days of the empire, all the vehicles we associate with Space Marines were also used by Imperial Guard. I wanted to paint different "historic" camo patterns, using some really great step by steps and tutorial videos. This was a try with winter camo, heavily rusted and ancient.
Tallarn Desert Tank. Both tanks were exercises in weathering, trying to bring the 40K world to live, where they are used in decade long campaigns, with no time to clean or paint them new.
I will write a little bit more to them soon, right now I am sick and my bed calls for the next round of sleep.
Read you soon.
