This is the Peter Pig version which has a satisfying hefty feel about it. Undercoated with Vallejo Black surface primer applied with an airbrush and then given a coat of Vallejo Green Grey which I thinned down 3:1 Thinner to Paint.
Tracks were painted with Vallejo Black Grey as were the rubber sections on the road wheels and rollers. The recesses on the tracks were then painted with Vallejo Dark Rust before the whole lower was given a dry brush of Vallejo Iraqi Sand.
I used .30 cals rather than the FN MAG just to be a bit different. I have started to put decals on it from the BF Fate of a Nation set but haven't looked at adding the radio antennas just yet.
Pin wash using Army Painter Dark Tone using a tutorial I found on YouTube.
The base size for my modern vehicles uses a standard 40mm wide base with a varying depth depending on the model, 60mm for APCs and 80mm for tanks.
