Khurasan 15mm Federal Sci-Fi Vehicles

Well, this week I finally got around to finishing my Khurasan Federal vehicles for one of my 15mm sci fi forces.  I have had these for about 8 months but honestly I have not been in the mood to paint them due to a lack of opponents.

The world my games are usually get in is a variation of the SPI 1970s boardgame, "Invasion America".  These vehicles are the German forces which make up part of the Euro-Socialist Pact invasion force.  Other forces comprise the South American Confederation and the Asian People's Alliance.  They face off against the North American Coalition, sometime in the late 2000s. 

The vehicles were airbrushed in a simple monochromatic scheme: NATO Black base, Tamyia German Grey, followed by Dark Sea Grey, Light Sea Grey and Vallejo Pale Blue Grey.  The vehicles were then gloss coated and then given a varnish of Tudor Minwax.  Once dry I airbrushed the highlights again to bring them out more.  I wanted a simple scheme which emulated the classic German tiger tank.

Only some of the vehicles have decals at the moment.

  3. Very, very nice indeed. Monochrome can look very boring but these are anything but
    And that E-500 screams Grandson of the PzKfw VI to me!
