GZG 15mm Kra'Vak Grav Tanks

This week I am returning to 15mm Sci-Fi, taking a break from Battletech for a bit.  This was spawned by a parcel in the mail: my Kra'Vak armor from GZG.  Yay!

These casts, like all from GZG are solid metal.  They are quite large compared to more contemporary vehicles by GZG.  The castings were quite clean, containing almost no flaws.  They went together quite easily with no fuss.

For a color scheme I decided to keep the same color as I used in my Kra'Vak infantry.  I call it: Sci-Fi/Battletech Grey (Tamiya NATO Black, followed by Tamiya German or Dark Grey, with Tamiya Light Grey highlights with a final highlight of Vallejo Pale Blue Grey...all airbrushed).   I then jewelled the viewports and added some metallic accents.  The bases are not finished in the photo but were done in my standard flock scheme.  I did not use any washes on these models.  However I did make liberal use of Tamiya weathering pigments. 

Overall I am pleased with the look.  Since the colors are similar to my Draconis Combine the scheme is quite easy for me to replicate now.  The color gives them a cold, military feel, just what I think the Kra'Vak represent.  The models themselves would fit well with any alien force really, being quite angular and menacing.  I need to order some SPA guns and another couple of vehicles to finish off my battlegroup.
