|Three little Stuggies went to the market...|
The StuGs had been basecoated with GW Iyanden Darksun, but I had experimented with various paints on the different models and quite frankly all three looked like shite. So I started wetbrushing them with Vallejo Dunkelgelb mixed with German Camo Beige, then pure Dunkelgelb, then Dunkelgelb mixed with a little white. For each layer I put a little less paint on the brush. Finally I drybrushed them with GW Bleached Bone.

After I did the chipping on the first StuG I decided to take a break, so I still have two more StuGs to do. While the effects are nice close-up I'm a bit sceptical as to if it will show at all on the gaming table. Still, I will probably do the other two in the same way so they match up. Still left to do are the tracks and wheels, as well as any smaller details like tow cables, tools and stowage items. When all that is done I will paint and fit side skirts on the StuGs as well. So they are far from done yet. I will keep you posted.
