Solar Auxilia: Greying the Armoured might.

Hi all. 

A semi-boring post; tonight I have been greying up the Tanks we have for the Solar Auxilia. 

A Dracosan, 3 Leman Russ, Shadowsword, Baneblade, Medusa and a Basilisk. 

We decided to go for a semi-plain scheme and used two different greys to achieve this. 

The fist coat was Tamiya IJN Grey. The Zenithal / zonal highlight was Tamiya Light Grey. 
Here you can see the Basilisk painted to IJN Grey on the left, and that the Medusa has been brought up to light Grey on the right. 

We did it zenithal (top down) to get the natural highlighting with our airbrush. We also did it the centre of every panel, trying to keep it lighter the higher you go up the model. You can see an example of this in the pic above (still being blended on top left not just going spray happy). 

Next stage is the Gold trims and iron work.
