Talae Paints Dwarven Forge Terrain Backlog

Recommended Posts

I feel like I have made threads like this off and on for years. I have so much unpainted terrain still. The goal here is to  use the recent Dwarven Forge Kickstarter as inspiration to get lots of painting done. Starting one unpainted drawer at a time with some stuff from Caverns Deep. I started last night and made some decent headway today after our remote RPG session.

 

Here is what was in the first drawer:

Pokorny Earth Stone:

Drybrush of equal parts Earth Stone+Cavern Drybrush with a couple drops of School Bus Yellow:

Next is to pick out the water in a few spots and then move onto another drawer.

Here are a couple of shots of much of the collection:

I think there are 17x3 of those plastic drawers. Most of those house Dwarven Forge and I would guess 60% is painted. There are also some of the other containers that are Dwarven Forge. I also have an IKEA Alex drawer that is all Dwarven Forge and is probably around the same percentage painted. Overall, lots to paint and the first post is only one of these drawers worth.

Haven't had the chance to do anything else but I am tempted to put in some work tonight. I am also tempted to play Call of Duty, so there is that...

I know the call of an enjoyable game. I've lost a lot of time the past few weeks to Elite:Dangerous but I don't mind at all. It's been a nice, relaxing distraction from everything else ^_^

Got the above drawer finished up with some painted water and gloss sealer:

Packed that back up:

Set out the next terrain drawers:

Then got the earth stone and water done on these (just need to drybrush them):

Thanks! I am really just basically following the guides that DF put out. I figure why fix what isn't broken. 

 

 

The drybrushing stage om terrain is always like magic!

My lunch break finished this drawer off today! Two down and three to go for this batch. Going to let them dry a while and then put away this drawer to get the next ones out:

And now has the Earth Stone phase half done:

I am debating how much water to work into the tiles. Currently, I am leaning towards only a few sculpts and limiting it to the ones that DF painted with water in their factory paint jobs. It will mean much faster completion on my end. Also, it should still look good.

Great progress.

Talae, do you seal your terrain?

Nope. Never had an issue.

 

Took a short break from the caverns to get a rickety wooden bridge painted.

 

Started with a heavy drybrush of Base Wood:

Then a light drybrush of stucco + a little base wood over the darker wood and an emphasis on the ends of logs:

Then Cavern Drybrush on the ropes:

Clever repurposing of the raft pieces!

These arent raft pieces. They are a suspension bridge from Dwarven Forge. I should dig out the Bones rsft to paint like this too, though.

 

 

I spent longer than I wanted to getting a few pieces painted with Earth Stone. They are deceptively time consuming due to not wanting to get paint in the wrong places.

Hopefully I can get the rest finished up with Earth Stone with another session and then water on a few pieces and finally the drybrush stage. That would put these Caverns Deep pieces at just about half done.
