I looked back a few months and didn't see any group/open WIPs so maybe nobody does them anymore. I have been around long enough to remember when they were a thing so I'm willing to give it a go. This thread is for anyone to post their work in progress shots from the Dungeons and Lasers kickstarter, be it figures, props or terrain. Or animal companions. Or dragons. Really you have options. I am starting with the wooden cottage. I went to the store and purchased some DecoArt craft paints to use for my terrain. They were chosen by eye for how they should look but I need to paint something to see if they do work. First, priming! I have white, I have black. I went black. There's no pic of it, but after this I gave my test piece a wash of dioxazine purple mixed with a little black. It will just make sure the black is not a "pure" black. Then I went over all the raised details with a heavy layer of Dark Chocolate. More than anything this is just to cover up the black and make a base for the actual wood paints. This was followed up with my two base colors, Milk Chocolate and Burnt Sienna. Picking out individual boards was a bit too tedious for for terrain and doesn't really give me much benefit. For the rest of it I'll just paint the Burnt Sienna in patches. The grid is somewhat disguised here, but if it is too disguised that also is a problem. I plan to make each square darker in the middle and then lighter around the edges. This calls for some Honey Brown. I got some Honey Brown in the wood grain so I did an experiment with two different ink washes to restore the wood grain. One was Raw Umber, the other was Burnt Umber. To the naked eye I thought the Burnt Umber was a little richer in tone, but in practice I don't think it will matter. Honey Brown back around the exterior. And pop the edges with some Buttermilk. A bit much? Probably so. I tried a half-step with the Honey Brown/Buttermilk but it wasn't quite right either. The detail is deep enough though that I can just go back over it with the Honey Brown and not worry about building up too much paint. And more to come!
