Dirty, Rusty, Howling Griffon goodness. Very slick looking. One small thing that stands out when I look at this though is that the outlines of the decals stand out (in some places significantly so). Did you use any decal solvents or setting solutions? And is that Rustall for the dozer blade?

Seriously nice looking Vindicator can’t wait to see a family shot of all three.

Yes I used decal solvent , and solution to set them in place.

The Rustting effect is just my yellow wash with more Red in it .( Orange 3 parts, brown 1part, golden yellow 4 parts), then for Rust just add in Two parts Red.

All my wash paints start off as applebarrel( or Poster paint i get at a local wal mart or craft store).

Good stuff. I see in the top-down photo that you had the same issue I did with the siege shield being a bit too narrow for the body of the tank. I spent so much time whittling and filing away, dry fitting, repeating... PITA. Just hope mine looks half as good when I eventually paint it up.

Minor point, StarGate - you've quartered the background between the left-hand Griffon in the pic of the dozer blade, but not the one on the right - was that deliberate?

Outstanding work, a nice gritty feel to the tank. I love it!

The difference between commitment and involvement is like eggs and ham; the ckicken was "involved", the pig was "comitted".

Perfect weathering and a nice crisp paint job. I second setting the decals... I need to do this myself.
