Rapid Fire 5th Battalion DCLI 
I finished the painting on two of the tanks this evening, give or take a bit of detailing and a matt varnish to tone things down. I painted the road wheels in GW Codex Grey to start with, then weathered the tracks and hull with three stages of Foundry Rawhide. I'm still not entirely happy with the tracks but they'll do.
The tarp was painted in three stage Foundry Drab with a wash of GW Devlan Mud to finish off. The wooden box was painted in three stage Foundry Chestnut with another Devlan Mud wash to blend it it. Finally, the hull machine gun was painted in GW Boltgun Metal then given a gunge wash to add some definition.
Next, I'll tackle the last of the tanks using the same approach, before adding some decals and giving the whole lot a spray with Army Painter matt varnish. I may even have a go at texturing the bases and painting them in Foundry Rawhide if I have the time.
