PiP (FOW): Friendlies?

Sonder kommando panzer brigade150 from Forged in Battle roll off the paint table. Painting wise there is no new methods. The decals, from Dom decals, were applied trying something new

Paint the vehicles as normal.
Prime the decal area with Vallejo decal softener. Particularly, if the area has a lot recesses and raised areas.
Apply the normal
Give another light coat of decal softener.
Once dry, lightly dry brush the decal to blend into the background.
Then weather the vehicle as normal.
