Lord Brooke’s Purple Coats [Part V]
1.Painting slate wall.
After painting the miniatures we still pending painted scenery. We begin with the slate wall we created in a previous post (Preparing the base).
First paint the entire wall slate in black to apply the basic colors and then rise as we see necessary.
The next step is apply a dry brush of Neutral Grey (70.992) to the wall and Flat Earth (70.983) to the rest of the stones.
Finally apply a dry brush of Neutral Grey (70.992) and White in 1:2 ratio, and Iraqui Sand (70.819) to the rest of the stones as long as we get the final result.
2.Painting base and placement miniatures.
It’s time for the preparation of the ground texture and the placement of miniatures on it. We encountered a first problem, the placement of all models prevents a comfortable placement of texture and decoration. So we have to place the figures slowly and one by one decorating and painting the base around them. Leaving some areas dry until we can continue this process. It may seem tedious, but as we make and paint the ground on one area, another opposite area can dry.
The first is to apply a layer of texture Vandal and adding stones of different sizes. We will mold some of them with putty to suit pose of some miniatures.
Then aplly black paint across the surface.
We apply the basic colors: Citadel Brown Mournfang mixed with black 1:1 to the groung, German Grey (70.995) for the larger rocks, and Flat Brown (70.984) for smaller stones.
Then the first lights. Drybrush of Beige Brown (70.875) to the groung and then another very slight of Pale Sand (70.837). Neutral Grey (70.992) for large rocks and Flat Earth (70.983) for smaller stones.
And the final climb, Neutral Grey (70.992) with a 1:1 ratio mixed white for rocks and Iraqui Sand (70.819) for small stones. It doesn´t matter the final result as the ground will be covered with most varied vegetation.
That’s it, the next step you will see published in Diorama section of the website where you can view a complete gallery of the final result and the latest explanation of the final details, all in this link. See you!
