I had super fun painting up this light walker and am officially addicted to the Dust universe. Can’t wait to get my hands on the Dust Warfare rulebook. Although I’ve yet to play a single Dust Tactics game I am utterly in love with the alternate WW2 concept.
Before and after pics so you can see what i've done.
As mentioned in my last post, I decided to paint this walker in the Luftwaffe scheme of dark grey and dark green. I’m using the Vallejo model colors range for this project. The colors I used were: 868 Dark Seagrey and 979 German Camo Dark Green. I’m going for the mid war European theater paint scheme so my Axis units will have be having lots of greens.
The swastikas are from a decal sheet set I bought while based in Jakarta in 2001. 10 years and the sheet is still good and decals went on perfectly. Just goes to show that some product will last the test of time.
When I first saw the model I knew I wanted to make it into an SS unit. So my Dust Axis force will be from the 3. SS-Panzer-Division Totenkopf . The Totenkopf skull decals are from the Flames of War SS decal sheet. The SS were the elite units of the third reich and would logically be the first unit supplied with the walker weapons platform. Plus, they’re just bad-assess!!!
I weathered the model and gave it some paint chips but think I’ve overdone it a bit. What do you guys think?
Overall, I’m very happy with the model. Looks menacing esp with the swastika and Totenkopf logo logos.
Next up, the medium walker Ludwig :)
