PiP (FoW) Tank killer company

Cat killers on the prowl
A completed tank killer company rolls of the painting lines.

The models are from Battlefront from their new plastic miniature range. The models are an absolute treat to put together.
Painting wise there were a couple of new things tried.

-The models were pre-highlighted before the base coat was applied and this seemed to create some nice color modulation.
-The pigment was applied by saturating the painting brush and using the air brush to scatter the pigment over the model.

 I still have not figured out how to applied dried mud pigment to a model yet or how to better blend in the decals. But overall I am happy with the output.
