These are Heroics & Ros 1/300 A-34 Comets, all re-barrelled with brass pins (the muzzle brakes are superglue gel) and painted in a style that is new to me, though I've seen it used a lot on 15mm stuff.

Once the dry-brushed highlights and ink-washed shadows are laid down, the individual panels of the vehicles are painted in a flat colour. The reason for this is that these Heroics & Ros models have a relatively coarse surface texture compared with the higher-priced brands like GHQ or C-in-C, and dry-brushing catches this texture and leaves a grainy effect. Painting the individual panels in flat shades smooths out the surface imperfections visually.

Once that was done, I added some more ink-wash with a small brush to localize the effect and varnished them.

The yellow triangular unit markings were drawn on in Badger Air-Opaque liquid acrylic with a sharp-nibbed mapping pen.

They look good. The Comet is definitely one of H&R's better models. You made a really nice job on the gun barrels
