So, I invoke the 3 foot rule on these; one could go back and forth forever attempting to edge half-timbered buildings.
I have been idly working on new scenery since the pandemic, and finished two more buildings plus a well I bought a few months ago. (That’s lightning speed compared to some projects.) These are sold on Amazon by some outfit called Ender Toys. I picked up a group of four, and a second group of two, some fences and the well.
If these are an example of what I could get at home, I’m not rushing out to get a printer to wrestle with. The filament lines are pretty distinct close up.
However, they are light and didn’t take all that long to paint, so I think they will be fine in a game.
I posted the earlier buildings plus some tree bases in this thread: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/92205-tree-group-bases/
The overall building collection now looks like this, including a Battle Masters tower:
My crystal ball says there is a skirmish game in my near future...
As Halloween approaches the dollar stores are filling up with cheap decorations and spooky bricabrac. Amid all the potential projects a certain reflective skull caught my eye. Not knowing if it would take paint or not I decided to roll the dice on a few. I attached them to some bases, added a bit of sand, and the next day I took them out to prime.
They ended up taking primer just fine, though I guess I shouldn't be surprised with the primer I use. Unfortunately I forgot to snap a picture of their grey primed goodness.
Next up were the basecoats of the skull and "dirt".
I didn't get great or even smooth coverage on the skulls, but it was good enough as I was just going to add a heavy wash anyway.
The wash was a bit thicker than I wanted but again I figured it was passable and more than good enough to move onto a final drybrush.
Not too bad, but there is definitely room for improvement. I guess I'll just have to practice a bit more with my new drybrush.
I finally took the leap and tried Uncle Atom's makeup dry brushing technique. Though this project probably qualifies as a failure, I do see the potential. Now all I need is more practice, it's not like I don't have a huge backlog of terrain just waiting to be painted.
