    Panther G (Tamiya 1/35)

    Sure! First I did paint whole tank in 3 color late war "Ambush" scheme with Tamiya acrylics, then I covered it with hairspray. After hairspray dried a bit I covered the tank with Tamiya flat white/buff mix with random pattern, letting original colors show throught this layer. Once this was dried I soaked an old brush with water and started "rubbing" white layer off. Hairspray protected the base and allowed white not to stick too hard onto the model so it could be removed with wet brush. I repeated this painting step twice to get the effect I wanted.

    Panther G (Tamiya 1/35)

    Time for some more v.i.p pictures! After seeing Kunjuros nice looking Tiger I in winter camo I wanted to try that technique myself. So, here's what I have now, a mighty Panther G! Next step will be re-gluing all those tiny photoetch that I rubbed off and then start some detailpainting, inside of hatches and exhaustsystem. In the end this model will be in diorama so suspension and tracks are done after the model sits in a base. Any comments, advices and critisims is welcomed.
  3. What do you use when adding dust? Pigments, washes or something else? Tracks are looking really good, I like how you've got them dusty but still kept all the details visible. Did you do pinwashes to the hull?

    Panzer IV D 1:35 (Tamiya, wip)

    Here it is, I'm calling this project done. I should re-do some painting to roadwheels to make them cleaner but since this was practice project for painting panzergrey tanks I'm sparing myself from that pain.

    Panzer IV D 1:35 (Tamiya, wip)

    There has been some activity in my modelling desk too lately, here are some work-in-progress photos of my current project. It's an old Tamiya kit from late 70's that I've been using as a practice model for color modulation. At this point pretty much all basic painting is done and in next stage there will be some detail painting and then the weathering starts. Comments? Yeah, double post... Sorry. Edit. No2, is it showing now? Photobucket is ****...

    Tiger I in winter whitewash (1/35 Academy)

    Hard to explain since I'm not native English speaker but what I meant with that grey primer is this. Your winter white wash is so neatly applied that it looks, in few photos, that camo pattern is applied over the whitewash and then worn off making your whitewash look as basecoat and not the other way round. 3rd picture in particular looks to me like camo has worn off revealing grey layer underneath it. There is no actual primer shoving through, just the way my eye "judges" your paintjob. But like said, still liking the overall look of the model.

    Tiger I in winter whitewash (1/35 Academy)

    Nice work, looks good for my taste but since you asked criticism few points that caught my eye. That whitewash is way too perfect and well applied imo, looks almost like the camo has worn of showing grey primer underneath, specially on that low quarter front pic. This could be a photo issue too, photographing model is a pain in the ass... Technically it looks like job well done tho, I like it. Second point is tracks, more presice the snow on tracks. It looks odd to have just patches of snow inside the tracks, it's either covered with snow or polished shiny by track movement against roadwheels. Can't wait to see that another Tiger!

  10. What's wrong with RNG? In several cases lately "Killshots" have done only 90% from average dmg leaving opponent to 2-4% health... So many DMG lowrolls.

      I did a quick check. In last 2 games with Mauschen 490 alpha gun I rolled once over 500 out of 16 shots. Average DMG was 435.71. Not bad for such a gun... Almost 90% of it's promised alpha. Am I missing something here?

      Thats a feature (1% tanks) WG introduced 2011 with the game release after open beta. Caused a massive outcry among veterans on the forums (those threads are long gone in best WG tradition), which ofc was ignored but at least acknowledged. They might have toned it down a little bit.


      Just an other form of noob protection.

      I left a tank on 1 HP yesterday, but I forgot to put on my tinfoil had. So, I just assumed it was RNG.

    Ruuhkis random games, making a comeback.

    So, after some idling I'm making a comeback to the game. Had a nice game with Leo but in the end I died... Was I too greedy when going into the "pit" or should I have stayed there instead of trying to retreat?
  12. Hello! I have a feeling that I've reached the point where I can't improve anymore without outside help so here it goes. All 3 games are played in a row, didn't try to impress or anything. I wasn't trying to prove anything but just play my way. I would really love some feedback, I just put my helmet on so incoming critic won't hurt too much... 1st game. This went pretty well on my stantards, not sure what I could have done better. Aiming was terrible but acceptable I think. 2nd game. Got bit lost there. Maybe the opening position wasn't that good after all but I think I relocated in time. Didn't too much and autoaim on that IS-3... Oh no, never ever again. 3rd game. This is a bit frustrating. I got myself to position where A: I Couldn't affect the game or B: Couldn't relocate. Also made really bad trades with opponents Type 59... This is where I would really need some advice. I think that best would have been just to pick better opening position but if we leave that out what else? Better micropositioning against Type, try to run away..? So, feel free to make me a better player! Thanks for watching!

    T95 - The Brick of Tier 9

    What crewskills do you recommend to this thing? Just started grinding towards E3 and put fresh crew with 6th/camo in it, what for 2nd skills? Was planning to go for repairs but would gunhandling be better? Also what equipment should I run? Currently Rammer/vents but still wondering between optics, spall liner and GLD as a 3rd choice. Or even a toolbox? Few games I've had with this I've found myself spearheading assault up close and personal so not really gaining anything from Binos/Net. Oh, and it's already fully upgraded so weight isn't a problem.

    Ruuhkis random games, making a comeback.

    My first ever Radley-Walters medal. I almost feel sorry for that arty... Almost. And Ensk with Strv S1, slowly getting some damage in this map/tank combo.
  16. How does a negative forum reputation affect me in here? Will I get banned if it lowers enough? Oh well, gotta have atleast one red stat I suppose...

      And now we know, it prevents me from getting answers either on forums or via PM. You won, I won't be posting onto these forums anymore.

      Are you sure? I'll fix it....

  17. Looks nice so far, I'm really waiting this.
  18. Some games will work with PvE but WoT isn't one of them. This is pure PvP and all magic what it has comes from that. I think that this ranked mode will introduce more players to competive playing, specially at lower ranks. Simply because they can play alone, with any tank they want and when ever they want! Many will try it and some will succeed to climb into higher ranks, nothing wrong with that. Key thing is that after you have reached ranks above average pubbie, like me, you'll should get more even games. This alone is enough to make me try it, all "goodies" I may or may not get are just a bonus.
  19. That was the point. If this ranked battle won't affect normal randoms we might have a improved WoT 2.0 with skillbased MM and reduced RNG in our hands .
  20. I don't get this "WG is forcing to play/I have to play this to be competive." If ranked battles are totally differend from randoms and won't offer any performance boost to randoms/strongholds/cw/etc? If you don't like it, don't try it. Simple as that.
  21. The way I see this... If these new "super"equipment were only for ranked battles that would eventually lead to minimum RNG in highest ranks thus skilled players could compete eachother on even field to earn something? Like medals, skins, etc. I wouldn't even compare randoms and ranked battles at all, Randoms are for anyone but the word "Ranked" means competive in my mind. So why you should get advantage from another mode to boost your performance somewhere else?
  22. Change this: All these can be mounted on any class at any tier, for any type of battle. To: All these can be mounted on any class at any tier, for any ranked battle. Problem solved.
  23. Title says it all, how these maps are supposed to be played with any siegemode tank? Not really firing lines to shoot, short distances so instantly spotted and can't really push... Few replays I found for my games in these maps. And I know I was a dick towards that Tiger P, did PM and say "I'm sorry for that!" after the game. Where did that 1st shot on Patton go? And some Ensk action... These 2 maps are really hard for me in this tank, I generally hate them! What I'm supposed to do there? Help needed!
  24. Thanks for answers, looks like I can do bit more dmg from railroad area than I expected. That's now my official GO-TO spot from both spawns. (If you see me on opposite team in this map ignore this...)
  25. Thanks for feedback. I run Rammer/Vent/Binos and use food too, I prefer vision over camo with this tank. I need to try that train platform next. Just feels like I'm sitting still and gaining nothing, can't get but few shots before screwed.
