Red Armoured Train [7]

You're probably fed up with this already but I have finished off the artillery wagon this evening, with a bit of light weathering and a few subliminal rust streaks. I also painted the buffers and couplings with three drybrush coats of Foundry Charcoal Black, followed by an overbrush of GW Mithril Silver. To round thiings off, I spayed the whole thing in Army Painter matt varnish to seal in the decals and tone down the shiny effect of the wash.

Now it's done I'll crack on with the command wagon, which I'm hoping to finish by this time next week. I have some ideas for the machine gun mountings but these are a bit sketchy at the moment, so we'll see what happens when I get around to the actual scatchbuilding. I'm off to France for the Easter holidays, so the engine and tender will have to wait until I get back.


  1. Absolutely not fed up!
    It's a great project - and looking very nice indeed.
    When will it wreak revenge on those damned counter-revolutionaries?

  2. You've done a grand job on the train, it look very well done!

  3. Chuffing good.

    (See what I did there?)
