Even though all I seem to paint now a days is 4BO green I really looked forward to painting these fellas. I find my painting style and techniques I want to use change and alter every time I sit down to paint and painting T34s is no exception. Problem is, I want my existing army to look as coherent as possible, so I try not to change my style. So a commission of 3 T34s gave me the opportunity to explore some alteration in my technique.
First off, I want to get the overall effect lighter, much lighter. I dislike seeing the hordes of overly dark miniatures you see adorning our tables…keep it light people. For this I had no desire to change the paints I use, but to incorporate a greater degree of the lighter colours and also to stop being so heavy handed with the filters and black lining. Also I felt I wanted to incorporate edge highlighting, which leads to a lighter overall finish.
