Like the scenery? I show how to build it in this guide:

Paints used:

Deck Tan (VMC)
Stormhost Silver
Ceramite White
German Uniform (VMC)
German Grey (VMC)
Nuln Oil
Black (VMC)
Typhus Corrosion
Rhinox Hide
Athonian Camoshade
Agrax Earthshade
Red Rust (Secret Weapon)
Orange Rust (Secret Weapon)

The Secret Weapon paints can be bought here with international shipping:


Brown Earth basing paste (Vallejo)
Testors Dullcote matte varnish
Fine Leaf Foliage by Woodland Scenics (Olive)
Javis Fine Turf (mostly the Mid Green colour, but also some of the Dark and the Light)

For an alternative to using the Secret Weapon rust paints, here’s how you can mix something very close with Citadel colours: For Orange Rust you can use Skrag Brown mixed with a little Yriel Yellow, and for Red Rust you can use Rhinox Hide – either on its own or for a really close match you can mix in a little Wild Rider Red.

Bruses used for this video: Rosemary & Co Series 33 Size 2, and Series 56 Size 6.

Any palette will do but this is the main palette that I use:
