A first coat of paint

Based on the paint scheme I use for the Elites of my XIX Guards regiment, I also started to give the Grecci a first coat of paint.

As you can see, the base is the red-brown "terracotta" onto which the disruptive pattern is painted.

So far I'm only adding the base camouflage of Scorched Brown and Elf Flesh (?)

There are some more elements for the camouflage, like sand-colored diamonds, and a set of three-dots in a light-brown. These and all weathering effects will be added towards the end. But first I want the base camo and then I'm going to move on to the Drop Containers.

4. Wrapping up

Well, now that the basic vehicles are more or less completed, I wrap it up by adding the wheels and tracks.

So far only the Kairos had wheels and tracks.
I got some Tamiya Sherman wheels via Ebay, that I slightly modified
by adding rivets and such

then I simply added regular Leman-Russ tracks.
Yes, they are wider than the wheels, but remember, Dencaria is a desert planet, so lots of sand and dust, thus the wider tracks do make sense :)
