Many of the Iraqi hardware was bought from Brazil, APCs, light tanks, missile launchers.
Our own hardware tend to be dark green, very dark green. Also I believe that the Brasilam troops in service of the U.N. (in Haiti and other humanitarian relief missions) should have some in U.N. white.
About the light tanks, Brazilian APCs and Light Tanks are modular, the Cascavel Light tank is an Urutu with a tank tower.
Brazilian Army Insignia ready to be stenciled on the side of the Urutu/Cascavel.
P.S.: The preview doesn't show the image, because the stencil is white on tranparent background.
P.P.S.: Seeing the color on my work monitor, it seems spot-on. My tablet may put tricks on me, since he alters display luminosity to conserve battery power. About other colors, I think the navy has some in light gray, and the air force doesn't bother with armored APCs. (P.P.P.S.: Researched better. Navy uses the 8-wheeled MOWAG Piranha III)

Papercraft models can be surprisingly strong for their sizes.
I constructed the hexagonal gatehouse from mageknight, without any structural reinforcement aside of gluing the textures in cereal boxes. My 11kg, 3 year old was using the model as a improvised step to reach toys in the upper shelfs of her bedroom. It barely buckled...
Only five and half years late to the battlefield, it's Forum Horde #106 Real World Armies! Since the only entry for this lost Horde is my Urutu I decided to create some variety and there are nine different color variations plus three with Iraq, Brazil, and UN markings. onemonk.com/fh-2013.html
I still want to finish up the Cascavel/turret version, check back in five years or so...
Hm, looking at it again it looks like I'm missing texture details on the MG and little bits on the turret components. All of the color and fx texture work is done, all the parts are there and should build up fine.
poor tanks!!!! T.T ... i want to see more boss!!! more tanks!!!
Me too! But...
My main laptop survived, just the power cord was shredded. The old back up one seems to be toast, and unfortunately it's the one with the 3d modelling programs I use to create vehicles, which is why I kept a machine around with an outdated OS. I guess I need to learn a new 3d program to do my vehicles. Fortunately, I do have a habit of exporting models to do white builds so I do have a pile of "idea vehicle prototypes" that I can texture and finish.
cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.

berneart76: well, this is fun, (not) transferring all my papercrafting sets into the cloud. The stuff I got from DriveTrhruRPG was simple with their library desktop app,but my other stuff, sometimes with multiple duplicate copies is entertaining.

berneart76: Vermin King I usually use a mix of drybrush/watercolor/photocopy and occasionally posterizing at different levels of opacity.
Feb 26, 2019 20:46:54 GMT -9
berneart76: Vermin King, that's similar to the enhancing that I do on my texturing. I've found that sometimes I need to scale up or scale down the image (usually by 50 or 25 percent down or 200 or 300 percent up) to make get the enhancements to look "right"

Vermin King: On the zebras, I did multiple enhancements and cartoon filters and used them at 100%, and they still didn't look that different than the photos
Feb 26, 2019 12:27:26 GMT -9
Vermin King: When I make a figure or terrain piece based on a photo, I clean it up and align things to look 'right', then I create another layer and do enhancing and cartoonizing on it. I then adjust opacity over the photo image until it looks good. On the zebras,

Vermin King: berneart76, do you mean giving them green or purple manes and tails? and a few piercings? maybe a cig hanging out of their mouths?
Feb 26, 2019 12:24:18 GMT -9
Vermin King: cartoonizing a zebra doesn't do much

Vermin King: And due to the snow, I'm off tonight. I am going to miss the cash on the paycheck, but I'm glad they want their employees to be safe

ignatious: Actually I was referring to the two previous posts. I was trying to be subtle in order to sublimate the crassness. Read them again, but in Mel Brooks voice while he is winking, and nudging the person to his right.

Vermin King: Sure. Euphemize us
Feb 8, 2019 18:40:48 GMT -9
ignatious: would anyone care for a euphemism?

cowboyleland: We hadn't had snow for a few days. Last night the plow came down my street and did nothing but fill every ones driveways back in. Just for practice, I guess.

Vermin King: In KC we had an ice storm (with thunder sleet) the other night. Left things drivable, but last night the plow came down my street. They took all the rough edges off. Might as well have ran a Zamboni...
