The starter set is great value. I traded my Germans with another local player to get a second set of Allies (British and Americans). In total I know have a legitimate 1,800-2,000 point force built from only the starter set (for less than 2/3 of the price of GW's new starter). I will review the starter set once I have had the opportunity to paint a few more of the models. For now I will just say that I am hugely impressed by the thought and quality put into the content of the starter set. The addition of force lists (yes, you can play without buying a codex!), 2D terrain and counters, a brief painting guide, online painting videos, quick start rules and more make this starter set a great way to get into the game.
Back to the model... After looking at many pictures I was excited to try out a German camouflage pattern using my airbrush. I painted this model pretty quickly. I airbrushed Vallejo Model Air Middlestone on the whole ramp. I then airbrushed small patches of VMA Tank Brown and Russian Green for the camo areas. I then washed the ramp with thinned Citadel Gryphonne Sepia and the lightly drybrushed some Middlestone and VMA Sand over the top areas and adding a little metal along the runners to simulate wear.
I also did a few experiments in different patterns by painting a small wooden block as a quick test.
