Nice. Is that chalk or pigment washes you have done?
Did you like the warlord kit?

I have used both enamel washes and pigments for the weathering after having applied oil filters (both single tone and dot filters). The Warlord kit is a nice gaming kit, quite detailed but no part that is too likely to break with the single exception of the two tiny tow hooks at the back, which in fact broke immediately before painting...

Nice.

One day I'll get 3 of those and one Firefly and do an Irish Guards armoured platoon... And a Michael Caine mini in a Humber, of course... :-D

Can I suggest you name your lead tank Ballyragget, in honour of John Gorman, 2/Irish Guards? Not many people took out a King Tiger with a Sherman!

Nice to see that the assistant driver (Gdsmn Hugh Agnew) maintained the high standards of Guards' discipline, and saluted the enemy officer before buggering off.
