You can have the best-painted miniatures, but they will look rather sad and repulsive on a table with pieces of carpet as woods and books used as hills. An excellent looking terrain is what every game needs, and in this days, there is a whole universe full of different products and manufacturers to choose.
I was planning to do a review and then a small tutorial how to paint those walls, but I decided to make just one article instead. So without further due let’s get started.
Armourcast has a long-standing reputation, with a vast selection of different resin and metal models, if you don’t believe me check their website. The quality of walls is superb, and I like the number of details. The walls are straightforward and quick to paint as well.
Paints used in this tutorial:
- Black spray primer (I used Army Painter, but any will work);
- Bubonic Brown by GW (yes, is a bit old paint :D);
- Sand by Docrafts Artiste;
- Blanc by Docrafts Artiste;
- Spice Red by Docrafts Artiste;
- Nuln Oil wash by GW.
Like with any model, we need to prepare it for painting. In this case, all I needed to do was to give it a bath in warm water with a bit of soap to remove any leftovers after release agent. Next, I primed it black with standard matt black spray paint. With that done the walls were ready to paint.
A heavy drybrush of Bubonic Brown was used as a base colour.
To finish the stone I applied light layer of white (Blanc) colour, aiming mostly for edges. For many, that will be the end, but I decided to add a bit more colour to break a monotonic look of the walls.
Hope you enjoy this quick tutorial and don’t hesitate to leave a comment or suggestions, this is my first article, so all the feedback is more than welcome.
