Markus,

As always, your work is outstanding. What did you use for the foliage? Keep up the good work.

Mike

Thanks a lot for the kind words, i really appreciate it!!
This is my first serious try on a base, so it is cool to hear that you like it!!

Michael,
the foliage was mainly done with oregano.
It gives the modelling room a nice Pizza-smell :lol: .
I sprayed it with Olive Green first and then different layers with olive green lightend with yellow (each layer with more yellow). After that i sprinkled some uncoloured oregano on the ground.

Not wanting to be rude ...

But I think the rail bits are a bit 'flat'. The stones are just a bit of a dark grey lump. I'd add a wash and slightly drybrush the stones. Check railways in your neighborhood, the stones are often a bit rust coloured.
The foliage is quite nice, but clean up the loose leaves in the side.
Luchs looks good too, but personally I'd like to a bit more depth in the paintfinish.

Hope this helps,

Cheers, MartinD

Martin,
no problem with your comments!
The reason i am posting is that i need every tipp i can get .

Sorry, but i got some problems to understand what you mean (I am german and my english a bit rusted ):

What do you mean with "flat"?

Which side do you mean?

As to the stones, they werenīt drybrushed on the pics, i was doing this last night.
And i woīnīt change anything on the Luchs anymore, except for maybe some dirt on the wheels. I like how the Luchs came out, so i have a hard time thinking about changing anything on it .

Thanks a lot for the comments, i appreciate it!

Markus

Hello Marcus,

The stones seem a bit grey to me, and lack depth in their finish. Of course, that purely personal taste, but just a small wash or the drybrushing you're gonna do will do the job.
As for the leaves, I mean those lying on the white edges. I presume that's a pic frame or similar?

You might want to try to add some pigments to the base, and some to the lower hull and suspension of the Luchs as well to tie them together.

Other than this, it looks. You actually get to finish models. I usually don't get further than building, basecoat ... or sometimes just buying a kit and some extra

Cheers, MartinD

Ok Martin, it seems like i understood you correctly .
The stones received a drybrush yesterday and it really looks better. I just left this until the rest of the dio was done so far.
The leaves on the edges of the frame disapeared. The white stuff is just tape to prevent me painting on the frame itself.
Sadly i donīt own any pigments, so i need to rely on my trusty old pastellchalks to tie the vehicle and the base together :lol: .

I will post some pics later today.

Cheers!

Looks good Marcus.
Stones really have improved with the drybrushing. Pastel chalks is probably just as good for dusting. Personally, I'd add some more to the tank. You can remove it quite easily, so brushing on heavily shouldn't pose too much of a problem!?

Just on tiny, nitty witty nagging of the tank. Left hand side, sprocket; the tracks seems to bump up a bit where it leaves the sprocket. It might be to suggest movement but from this angle, it seems kind o' strange. Coudl you post a pic from a lower angle please?
