How does one collect the rewards for completing the Christmas album collections ??  I've completed the Modern collection, but can't find the paint, cammo, and other items anywhere in my inventory ??

Any help would be most appreciated...

Exterior, camouflage. Pretty sure you can only apply them to premium 8s and tier 10 tanks.

OK, thanks people, I get it now... I guess they consider the "paint" as cammo......the way they have it worded leads one to believe there is actually 4 items, when in reality, there is only 3  [ paint ( cammo ), emblem, and inscription ]. Thanks for your prompt responses & help.............. Happy hunting & g/l in your battles........ :)

To use the album reward camos, you first have to select a tank in your garage that can use that camo.  (each album is for different nations, remember)

It also has to be a tier 8 premium or a tier 10 tank.

Then go to Exterior, make sure Camouflage is selected, and click "Preset Styles" (not Custom styles)

It should be there.  I don't recall having to click anything to collect them, I'm pretty sure they were awarded as soon as I completed the album.

Presets include paint, camo, and emblems (really, it's just the default emblem that came with the tank).

 

They cannot be changed.  Once you select it, it applies everything.

 

Along with the camo and paint, they also give you special holiday emblems and inscriptions, but you cannot use them with the presets.

 

For instance, I cannot put the Chinese New Year Dog emblem while using the Chinese New Year preset.

Does anyone know how long we get to keep the special camo? Does it go away after Holiday ops is over?

I've heard people say that it stays, but I haven't seen any actual sources.

 

I can't think of any emblem or camo that you've earned that was only temporary.

If those camos were only temporary, they would've/should've stated it. But they didn't, so if in fact they were temporary (I don't know who came up with that idea), people (including myself) would be really, really upset, because some of us bought those boxes to complete the collections and get the holiday camos.

For those who didn't pay and still got to finish a collection, it might be even worse, for all the effort put into something eventually useless.

So no, there's no reason to think that after the event they'll be gone

I finished the Holiday Ops and was able to place a (single) inscription and a (single) emblem on a tier 9 tank, but haven't seen the camo/paint anywhere.  Am I out of luck?

The camos can only be used on tier X or premium tier 8s.  As far as I know they are permanent, still seeing them on tanks today.  Remember also to turn off 'only show historical camos' in the settings if you want to see others on the field.

Also remember they'll only show up for use with the appropriate country tanks as well.

Which collection have you completed and which tank are you trying to put it on?

 

If you completed the Holiday collections (traditional, modern, Russian, and/or Chinese), you get a Preset that can only be applied on premium Tier 8s and Tier 10.

 

When you go to the customization section, there's two tabs at the top of the customization pane, one of them being Preset.  Click on that, and you can choose one of the Holiday presets for a tank that is in that nation (ie, Chinese New Year can only be on Chinese tanks, Russian Christmas can only be on Russian tanks, Modern can only be used on Swedish, US, UK, and Japanese tanks).

 

Also, you cannot use emblem and inscriptions with the Presets...they come with their own.  In the case of the Blackwidow preset, it's a spider emblem, I believe.  For the Holiday presets, it's the default nation emblem (red stars for Chinese and Russian tanks, etc.).

This is strange.  I got the emblem and inscription, but not the camo.

Did you check your Preset customization?
