I sometimes get emailed questions from newcomers to the hobby looking for painting advice. What I have to offer is not museum quality painting, but rather quick paint techniques. A few months back I posted a tutorial on quick-painting tanks using washes over a white primer.
The other technique I use is quick-painting tanks using full-strength paints and layers over a black primmer. You can see that tutorial by clicking on the link.
Up next: Some more 54mm AWI casualties and some 1/72-scale tanks.
