Raid on Port Corinth (11)

Hi all,
the shoulder is keeping me rather busy with doctors visits, physio-therapy twice a week, and the pain gifts me with sleepless nights to boot.
So my updates are considerably slower than my usual pace.
Well, as chrisb pointed out, I had the corrosion line on the listing vehicle wrong, as it needs to be aligned to the hull line, not the waterline - thanks for pointing it out, I completely missed it :)
Once this was fixed I gave the vehicles their names :)
Tito and Tarantula
I also added some unit and vehicle markings.
And then started weathering.
Part is brush painted, part is sponge-applied.

Ready for pigments

Here are the pigments applied and the spirit still wet.
Pigments in the dried state.
And with a coat of matte varnish.
Next I prepared for the illumination effects, by applying a first light white dry-brush.
And then the first colored light with the airbrush.
The howitzers muzzle flash together with the illumination effect
Not quite there yet.
Sorry for the blurry image.
Some of the light effects closer up.
And the final effect for the howitzer :)
Me likes :)
And last-not-least the Rambo in the rear hatch got his illumination effect.
This pretty much concluded the painting stage for the vehicles and the terrain. Next is the Infantry.
As I was prepping the troopers I realized the Gunner lost his head...quite literally :)
Digging through my heads box, I selected another Mad Robots head
And finally I applied a first coat of Terracotta base color.
Well, this is as far as I got over the last 2 weeks.
I hope the update was worth the wait :)
I look forward to your C&C.
