I've always been a fan of "easy to paint" miniatures, especially when it comes to gaming terrain. Some models need extra love or a meticulous, steady-handed, paint job. However, terrain, for the most part, can be the exception. Although, I'm sure diorama, scenery, and train hobbyist would likely disagree with me. And now that I think of it, there was that one Crystal Brush awarded to our sandbag trench piece - Best Historical Figure... Some of you will know what I'm talking about :)
The reality is... sometimes we just want to get something tabletop worthy and get down to business... and by business, I mean rolling dice!
That line of thinking plays a major roll in how we tackle our terrain concepts. We wanted to make terrain pieces that not only looked realistic and provided functionality on the tabletop, but also used real world textures that could easily be exploited with a simple dry-brush or ink/wash. So that's what we did!
I used a primer, a basecoat, some different colored washes, and a drybrush for these... Voila! Not too shabby, eh?
Let us know what you think!
