More Terraining

I actually meant to dovetail this with my last post but didn’t have time. The other terrain I was able to complete was for my Old West setting. I showed a few of these during my ongoing paint challenge but was able to take a few more shots to show it all off.

July Paint Challenge: Day 3

With Wyatt Earp complete, I moved on to his older brother, Virgil last night. This was done in the same style as before and I’m working up a quick photo guide on how I’m doing this as well.

For day 4, I’ll just keep pushing through these Old West figures before I distract myself with something like Infinity.

July Paint Challenge: Day 2

I dedicated day 2 completely to the finishing of my first old west figure.

I was pretty excited getting Wyatt Earp finished up in this style. What I find interesting is it isn’t quite like the monochromatic style I did with my black and white Walking Dead.

I’ll dedicate some time to really define the differences later but I really felt blending the Inked style I was doing earlier with Here’s Negan and the original B/W Walking Dead came together in this Sepia style I’m going for. On to more western heroes tonight.

HATE Scheming

I’ve had the board game HATE for a while and I knew I’d want to paint it up but the game has a ton of minis. They are all pretty fantastic with a ton of detail so they deserve to shine. Unfortunately, painting all those minis up would take longer than I have the patience for and the color schemes would likely be pretty muted anyway. Give all that, I decided to try out a very simple approach. I had a broken model (with a replacement on the way) so I decided to test my approach on it and get my process down before diving in.

Finishing Off The Lanterns

I had wired up my new lanterns a while back but they still needed some finishing touches to complete them. Namely, they needed painting and some final assembly.

90% There

In the saga of another long-term project, I am nearing the end of my Test of Honour small-game board. This 2′ x 2′ board will be used to run micro games of very small groups like my Dojo Assault scenario created last year. I finished up applying my homemade wash earlier and wash able to add some of the near-final details like dry brushing and some permanent plants.

Terrain Without Color

This week I worked a bit more on my Walking Dead terrain, specifically the game board.  As I discussed in my paper terrain post, I prefer terrain that is quick, usable, and easily stored.  Taking my Walking Dead game into the monochromatic world of black and white (b/w) makes printable paper terrain even easier. Also, painting a full game board in b/w seems too tedious for me. It can be done to great effect, however. Just check out this thread on coolminiornot.com and or this one on lead-adventures.de.
