Back of Beyond Expedition 
I decided to tackle the two improvised armoured trucks this evening as a change from the figures. They were given a three stage wetbrush of Foundry Tan, followed by a three stage drybrush of Foundry rawhide and Base Sand. The tyres were painted with Foundry Granite and a light lining out in Citadel Flesh Wash was applied to the various panels and joints.
The whole lot was then spray varnished in Army Painter Matt Varnish. They look a bit monotone and I didn't quite achieve the effect I was after, so I might go back and fiddle around with them tomorrow, perhaps adding some paint chips and black lines to the vision blocks, for example. I might even add some decals if I can find anything suitable in the spares box or perhaps paint over the roof of one of them in grey to add a bit of contrast?
I'll also need to paint over the unintentional *&^%$ thumb print!
