I haven't posted something here in this WIP forum in...so long I can't even begin to remember. I just sit and think and smoke comes out of my head and gears rattle around and nothing. But anyway. I started a WIP Tutorial type deal on my tumblr and blog *once it's done* and figured why not here too.

 

This project is the Chapel from the Warhammer scenery/terrain line. I'm doing a full buildup from start to finish and showing every step and paint along the way. So here goes. (Tune in daily except weekends as there will be new updates until completion, this is my morning before work project.)

That's for the walls for now, oil has to dry overnight then I'll handle some other pieces tomorrow morning and make some more progress and post it here.

 

Pretty pictures! Also purple roofs, interesting. Keeping an eye on this one.

 

Yep, purple is working out for sure, thanks kindly

 

Lovely work and appreciate the detailed wip.

 

Thanks, glad you're enjoying it

 

You've done some nice work on this already. Also the way you've designed this W.I.P. is brilliant. Detailed, yet easy to follow and lovely to look at. Very professional work.

 

Thank you, yeah it took me awhile to figure out how I wanted to present this WIP in image format. Easy to follow is a good place to be for a tutorial/wip

 

Very nice. Love the build up from purple to grey. I am surprised at how much depth it gives, and would cheerfully call that roof done if it was mine.

 

Thanks, it does add a ton of subtlety and depth doesn't it. I've a ways to go on it yet, but that's cool with something like this if anyone were to replicate my method here, they could call it done at whatever stage was pleasing to the eye for them or fit in with their other terrain for sure.

WOW! The way you built that colour up and used all those different techniques is just brilliant. You've got so much depth here and the contrast is perfect. This is one of the nicest pieces I've seen in a long while.

 

You really should consider putting this all together in an e-book format when it is complete and make it available as one full document when you are finished. There has got to be loads of people out there who could benefit from this.

 

Thank you for posting this here.

Instead of a drop shadow for dark colored words, use a small outer glow pulled in tight and somewhat transparent to help make them legible.

 

I did some graphic design for a while back 10-15 years ago, actually a couple of tweaks in the Fireworks text/glow/shadow panels are my nagging :)

Wow, this is incredible!! I second the excellent tutorial remark, this is one of the best I've seen. I actually feel like I could do this and have it look good.

 

Hey that's great, thank you!

Thank you kindly, that's a good idea. If only it wasn't a GW piece. (They get a little protective about people distributing their IP, even imagery, but it is a nice thought about the ebook) The depth really is the whole end point here, it's the process that takes awhile to get there, and you know what? I'm still not done with the depth, quite a bit more to come!

I didn't have much time to figure out how to do this in Xara, as in, zero time, so I did a quick and dirty in photoshop layerstyles but it's bleh of course. I'll do better next time thanks for the reminder about legibility, some of those colors get muddled for sure.

 

Ok those following this, gone for the weekend for some Summertime camping fun but I'll continue this on Monday. I'd say probably about half done honestly. Metals, then assembly I think, then weathering, or maybe basing then weathering we'll see. See ya!

Showing how I approached the wood for this piece. All the weathering is to be done at the end of the project once it's assembled and together. I like to do that weathering as a final touch because it helps to see the model as a finished object in space instead of it's multiple pieces when weathering.

 

The reason being is that I like to think of the structure as being attacked by the elements over time as a whole, instead of say, "oh here's this wall over here with weathering and rust drips and such,which all look fine, but strangely didn't manage to drip down onto the piece below it or cause any weathering to other nearby pieces to happen differently over time." So to help with selling the whole structure as having existed in some place or time out in the elements, I like to weather it at the end after painting each piece separately.

As of this Kickstarter, we will have launched 6 total campaigns, and have brought numerous products to the market. Additionally, we're excited to announce jungle-themed versions of past projects will be brought back for this Kickstarter! This includes the Deck of Stories/ NPC Cards, Dungeon Notes, and new models from our miniature line Counterspell Miniatures.

      *******
      1985 Games have launched their third Dungeon Craft Kickstarter.  The last two have been fantastic and I absolutely love them.  While I enjoy painting minis, I'm not a fan of building terrain or scatter, especially since it tends to block sight or get knocked over and is a pain to store.  These 2D terrain pieces are a great compromise. I haven't seen anyone else talk about Dungeon Craft on the forums, but I definitely advocate!  If you missed their last two KS there's opportunity to get those as well.  And for the first time they're offering some original minis as Add-Ons.

      Most of these aren't up to date and I've changed bits of them here and there since these, I'll be saving those shots for the finished product, but hopefully you enjoy the journey.

      Starting with a dry fit of 19507 Spiders of Emrith Kul encounter set.
      Not sure what to do with those bodies in webs on the slot. Need to go back and look at the pics to see if I should cut them or see if I have a spare slotta base to stand them up.
      Backdrop is a black cardstock.
