Re: Town House WD131

The painting on the first house is done. I started by painting the timbers, liberally overspilling the paint to cover all the gaps between timbering and the house. For this I mixed burnt umber with black. The roof was painted black.

Image

I then painted the walls in ochre, the windows in black.

Image

The roof was drybrushed in blues in several stages. Some shingles were left darker, others were hightlighted to quite a light shade. I then used different brown, black and blue washes on different shingles.
Then the whole models was drybrushed in ivory; walls, timbering and shingles.

Image

To tone down the stark drybrush effect, I applied brown, green and black washes (all from the Vallejo model range) to the model, and applied a final drybrush of very light white to the center areas of the walls.

After all buildings have been painted, I will apply some flock to represent moss, apart from that the model is done.

Re: Town House WD131

The painting on the second house is done. The timbers where painted a dark brown. The walls where painted in anthracite grey. The roof was painted black.

Image

The roof was then overbrushed in dark red, single shingles picked out in lighter red and a few in light red mixed with orange.

Image

The walls where stippled towards the center with umber green, then more centered white. The timber was drybrushed in two shades of grey. I then applied some washes; finally the roof was drybrushed from bottom to top lightly in ivory.

As with the first, I will apply some flock to represent moss, apart from that the model is done.

Thank you!




The painting on the third house is done. The timbers where painted a dark reddish brown. The walls where painted in brown. The roof was painted anthracite grey.

Image

The walls were then overbrushed in brown yellow.

Image

The roof was washed black, drybrushed in the basecolour. Individual shingles were then picked out in umber green and brown washes.

Image

Finally, the roof was drybrushed in the base colour highlighted with white. The walls where drybrushed in ivory, then several washes were applied to walls and timbers.

Image

As with the first and second buildings, I will apply some flock to represent moss, apart from that the model is done.

Re: Town House WD131

The painting on the fourth house is done. For the stones I used 3 different colours (grey, grey green, light brown), but mixed them as well, for more variety.

Image

They were then drybrushed in a light grey and all the seams blackwashed. The upper walls were painted in sand colours, the timbers a dark brown, the shingles bordeaux red; all this followed by several washes.

All the windows on the buildings so far were painted just black to keep in line with the style of the old White Dwarf buildings. This looked awful with the panneled shop window, so with that one I used blues to represent glass.

Image

Image

Image

Finally, the shop sign had the word book written on it.

Image

As with the first, second and third building, I will apply some flock to represent moss, apart from that the model is done.

Re: Town House WD131

Houses are done.

The first step in adding moss and overgrowth, was to paint all the sand that got glued to where it wasn't intended to in green, washed brown, and drybrushed in two lighter shades.

Image

I then used Woodland Scenics

+ coarse turf burnt grass
+ coarse turf medium green
+ blended turf green blend

I glued on the coarse turf, then covered the whole building side in the green blend, to cover all the gaps between the coarse turf and any areas where the glue was applied to sparsely for the coarse turf to adhere.

I think there are a couple spots where I overdid the effect, but all in all I am happy with the result.

Project done :-)
