Paint glorious paint… thuth I forgot how long it takes to base coat a terrain set, I spent 3hrs yesterday painting dark grey *snooze* anyhoo got a few more colours on this evening but it’s still looking pretty basic. But it’s a start and it’s worth noting that every terrain set goes through this dull looking part, it’s where you take it afterwards that makes people eyes pop ;) but here are I few in progress pics…
Hmm this ruin doesn’t look quite so busy now, winner :)
Bit of dry brushing has made those Aquila pop nicely but still need to find a striking colour for them.
Various stages of stonework
Hmm bastion has blended in with the base a bit too much, will need to fix that.
Painting finished stuff (ignore the necro terrain) unless anyone has suggestions?

Arg bloody snow, made a pva/flock/water paste and it seems to have soaked up the basing paint in places :(
Hope this amuses, and I’ll keep adding process pics here till it’s almost done.
