Painting Rebel Minis Grav Tanks
Three new Rebel grav tanks painted. These use the hull from the Tempest Class and the turret from the Thunder Class. I like the heavier feel of the Tempest hull but since the parts are interchangeable I can swap turrets whenever I like.
I made hover bases for the tanks from an MDF disc and the tip of carry-out chopsticks. The bamboo of the chopsticks is really tough and the tapered tip works perfectly with the hole on the bottom of the tank. Some rubble rock and sand finishes it off.
For the color scheme I wanted a simple and dark color that matched my Titan Marines. I'm calling this unit the "Night Hunters".
