Quick Coatin Your Cadian Rides Yo!

You know I'm all about speed if I can get away with it.

I would have thought my Cadians would paint up pretty quick since I was knocking out a lot of the job with The Army Painter Bone basecoat. Sadly I was wrong. It is quicker but not as fast as I would have liked. Catachan Green needs a couple of coats for a smooth finish which really bummed me out.

Thinking about my tanks was down right frightening.

Until I found this...

Flames Of War Soviet Armor Green is just about the same as Catachan Green. It seems to be a shade lighter but it's pretty close. After it's highlighted with Camo Green and a touch of Bleached Bone I imagine it should be just about spot on.

The really awesome thing about this was the coverage. You can see for yourself just how even it went on. I don't think it's a primer (the spray smelled different from other spray cans) and that may be it's biggest strength. The coverage was effortless.

So if your looking for a fast way to cover your tanks and you don't want to spend the time brushing on Catachan Green or spending tons of money and time on that Citadel Spray Gun thingy... this is a great alternative.
