In any event, it also signals the unofficial end of Summer, so it's always a bittersweet affair. This weekend, I committed to start AND finish a long-standing terrain project, AND start and finish a completely new one.
First up, basing and painting a set of the older 40k ruins!
|Placesetting of six.|
|Sprayed liberally with cheap-o black spray paint.|
|Not a bad start, I think. Note, I cut up a few of the walkway tiles to make them appear "cracked".|
|These dried quickly in the early September sun.|
|My two boys then helped paint some of the tiles in blue, in a checkerboard pattern, to break things up.|
|The tiny foam bricks were easy to make, and looked good, but a few didn't survive the dry-brushing process. Perhaps I needed to go over them with some white-glue to toughen them up.|
|Bricks were also painted in dark red.|
|And, the dry brushing begins!|
|Time well spent in the waning Summer sun.|
|And here's the tiles, ready for a Frostgrave battle.|
Wait! Did he just say FROSTGRAVE? I did!!! Stay tuned for more on that!
Thanks for stopping by!
