Exorcist Tank: eBay Miniature Rescues Tutorial

based tankHe primes it with Vallejo Black Surface Primer. Starting with the base coat, he takes Citadel Castellan Green and bases all of the armor plates. Next, he uses P3 Iosan Green to start brightening up the green. He also uses P3 Necrotite Green as an edge highlight. He adds a bit of Citadel Flash Gitz Yellow to that edge highlight to really make it glow.

Here he begins to recover the tank with P3 Iosan Green, P3 Necrotite Green, Citadel Flash Gitz Yellow and then re-weathers the tank to reveal the previous coat of paint underneath.
