tiniest rhombus posted a topic in Works In ProgressThanks to Pochi's awesome WIP http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/68003-cottage-wip/ (Check it out, it's so adorable! ) With out it I never would have known about this amazing company. I've been looking for affordable terrain pieces like these for awhile. For the quality of these, the price really can't be beat. Seriously, not one of the pieces I ordered has a mold line or flashing of any kind. Top notch. In coming wall of text. First up is the cottage. I got so involved painting the stone, I forgot to take pics of each step. Oops. A couple things I would do differently next time. Prime in black. Grey is my go to primer color but with the deep cuts of the stone, I would have saved a bunch of time just priming black because it ended up black after trying to get into all of the nooks and crannies anyway. And I normally brush prime everything but again with the amount of detail this thing has it was difficult to get into all of the spaces and it kept bubbling up on me so I'll spray prime next time. Colors used. Shadow and wash Scale 75 Necro Grey Base- Scale 75 Mistatonic Grey, Scale 75 Tindalos Red, Reaper Golden Brown, Reaper Terran Khaki. Highlights for Terran khaki- Pure white/ Terran khaki. For Golden Brown- Terran Khaki/Golden Brown. For Mistatonic Grey- Pure White/ Mistatonic Grey. For Tindalos Red- Terran Khaki/ Tindalos Red. Final all over Highlights- Added more Pure White to the Grey. To do the stone- I did an all over wash of the Necro Grey ( this is where the black primer would have come in handy) I then went over the entire thing with thinned Mistatonic Grey. Then, I just started randomly picking out stones with the different colors going back and forth between them until I was happy. I didn't worry too much about full coverage for these. Another very very thin all over wash of the Necro Grey. I then went back over each stone with their original base color by loading the brush then tapping the paint onto the stone with the side of my brush. Highlights for each stone were done the same way, making sure to lightly hit the highest points of the rocks. The final highlight of the pure white and grey mixture over all stones to tie them together. Comments and Advice always welcome! Thanks for looking :-)
