This is a portion of my Death Korps army and I want some constructive criticism before I paint the whole thing this way. All models have been blended and no washes were used. I'm going for a winter theme with snow bases and winter camo tanks. Sorry for fuzzy pics.

This army is gorgeous man...

My only complaint would be the "A315" on the armour. It needs some glazes (of that white base color) over it and some weathering imo.

I really like what you did. The tanks are great honestly if anything a little mud on the treads since you said constructive criticism. I loved the red coats as they really said"were so damn good we can wear red on the battlefield". Allin all excellent work love the rusted armor.

Listen, my children, as I pass onto you the truth behind Willy Wonka and his factory. For every wonka bar ever created in existance, Mr. Wonka sacraficed a single Oompa Loompa to the god of chocolate, Hearshys. Then, he drank the blood of the fallen orange men because he fed them a constant supply of sugary chocolate so they all became diabetic and had creamy, sweet-tasting blood that willy could put into each and every Wonka bar. That is the REAL story behind willy wonka's Slaughter House!

Man, that really must have taken a lot of effort and time. Wow, well done.

Six mistakes mankind keeps making century after century: Believing that personal gain is made by crushing others; Worrying about things that cannot be changed or corrected; Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it; Refusing to set aside trivial preferences; Neglecting development and refinement of the mind; Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do

With all the time and effort you put in I would go ahead and drill a hole or two in your Chimera's HF. Not hugely important, but since the rest of the model is very realistic and painstakingly detailed I think it would be a good idea.

Again, brilliant work.

Good gravy. Not only are you playing one of the nicest looking IG armies made, but you painted them easily just as nice. Definitely do that for your army

Some of the best IG painting I've ever seen. Do you seriously need to be told how good you are, or are you just fishing for compliments, you little tease?

Seriously though, I like the warm colours on the command squad and the drab uniforms on the fighting men.

Fan-freaking-tastic. The badass army looks like they've been being badass all winter long, making them even more badass. DKoK make me want to play IG. Yours make me afraid to, since I'll always be holding mine up to them as a standard, and I'd take years to get my painting to that level.

Excellent work. It's armies like yours that inspire me to pick up a brush and get practicing.

Your side is always the "will of the people" the other side is always fundamentalist, extremist, hatemongers, racists, anti- semitic nazies with questionable education and more questionable hygiene. American politics 101.

Can i just say that your style is very good. I really like that kind of painting. It's kinda rough (no disrespect as i like it) looking but works really well.

Is this your normal style of painting or something you adopted for this weathered look you have going?

These will or probably do look extremely slick on the battlefield!

Goddamn... I hate your figures. Now when ever I look at my Tau I weep a little and curse at them for not looking like this.

If I had to come up with any kind of criticism, it would be that the tank threads look a bit too "clean" for the weathered look. Would imagine them being a lot more rusty, muddy and generally dirty.

But boy oh boy, do your whole army like this!

It's settled then, I will paint the entire army this way. Since you guys seem to like it a lot here's how the tanks were done.
-Knarloc Green, skull white, vallejo smoke, boltgun metal, and mithril silver.
-Weathering powders.

To begin with, paint every part of the model that you want to be in winter camo knarloc green (Everything but the tracks, guns, and other metal bits.) Next, water down some skull white, you want it to go on translucent so don't use to little or too much water. The key to this is not getting any white in the recesses of the model but you don't want to put it on smooth, so streak it on and be a little messy. After this dries Completly! you can proceed with watering down the vallejo smoke which is a dark and gritty paint that greatly achieves a dirty look. Cover all of the white areas with this (It will look really dirty at this point but don't worry). After that dries you will essentially dry brush skull white over top, To go for a more weathered look you can leave the edges just vallejo smoke to show how the paint has been rubbing off. After the dry brush, put pools of watered down white on the largest and broadest areas of the tanks ( You may have to do one side at a time to avoid running paint off the vertical surfaces). Next, repeat a wash of white, smoke, and drybrush once more to finnish the camo. I used weathering powders last to create a few rusty spots and dirt crusted on the sides and ended with a spray of dullcoat to seal them in. If any of this is unclear check out this link which shows pretty much the same thing that I did.


Thanks for the comments I will definitely drill holes in the flamers and post more pics.

Very nice work.

The white on the tanks could possibly do with a little more blending into the shadows and dirt. It's a little too sharply defined at the moment, which makes it look to regular and looks a little more like a grey tank with white spots painted on than a dirty white.

The troops look fantastic, though. I love the distinction with the Command squad uniforms.

I would make all of the great coats the same color, not red on the command and green on the others, other than that, fan-freaking-tastic.

I actually like that a bit. Helps discern who is top dog.
