T he 360 Wargaming website has many free and useful features. One of these has 2 uses, our Paint Schemer Tracker/Gallery. It allows you to upload an image of a painted model and then tag areas of the model and enter what colours you used in each area. Making it much easier to replicate a paint scheme if you come back to it several weeks or months later, or other members or visitors to the site can be inspired to recreate your works of art.
We'll tell you how to use this feature below.
First you'll need to be registered for the website (we do this so that you can come back to edit your work at a later date). This can be done by clicking the 'Account' button at the top of the page and then selecting 'Register'. If you've already registered click 'Log In' and follow the usual steps.
Next it's a simple case of entering a few details, just enough that you'll be able to get back into your account in future.
Once you've registered you need to access the tracker. You can do this two ways.
1. Click the 'Resources' drop down and click 'Paint Scheme Tracker'.
2. Click the 'Gallery' button and then 'Click Here' at the top of the Gallery page.
You can also access these by going to your account, this is where you'll be able to see all the schemes you have uploaded.
Now it comes to uploading your image, nothing out of the ordinary here, click the 'Choose File' button and select the image you wish to use from your devices file structure. You can also add a brief description of how you basecoated the model and a little about the model itself, maybe it's a Blanchitsu conversion and you want to let people know what kits you used.
Now you get to tag your image with the paints you used, including the brand, range and actual colour. Tag as many areas as you want, just don't forget to click save as once you do they're added to the paints used list and you can hover over the area to remind yourself what the colour is. On this screen you can even choose to edit the Description and Basecoat if you forgot in the first place or just remembered some other detail.
Your model will then appear in the Gallery for everyone to be in awe of, they can even hover over the areas you tagged and see the colours you used.
We hope you find this guide useful and we will be adding more in the coming weeks.
In the meantime what are you waiting for? Head on over to the Gallery and add your scheme to the growing collection, find inspiration or just enjoy what is already there.
