The GÅRDBÛK Shrine ruins

I just painted one of terrain pieces from The GÅRDBÛK Shrine: Wargames Winter Complete Terrain Sets Kickstarter from StudioLevel.
The terrain sets available there are already painted in winter theme, but you also have an opportunity to buy unpainted ones as well. This way you can paint them your way – just as I did.
The terrain sets are made of high density polyurethane. They are light but durable. They even have plastic plants attached! The unpainted ones are supplied already primed, so you can go in for painting straight away. Before painting I attached some static grass, as I wanted to paint the ruins rather in autumn scheme instead od winter one. After glueing I sprayed the grass with primer to further seal it. Here is how it looked in the beginning.

I think that nothing can beat airbrush in fast painting large surfaces, so I used it to paint the whole terrain piece. I used shades of brown and beige for the ground and ruins. I tried to use varius color mixes to make it look more interesting. I also sprayed grass and plastic plants with green paint.

That is the magic of using airbrush over dark primer – at this stage the terrain looks good without need to apply any wash that could make the whole scene too dark. I wanted it to look like on sunny, autumn day – as we have now in Poland 😉
The next stage was drybrushing everything with light beige color. I did not want to overdo it, so I tried to apply it gently.

The last stage was detailing the terrain piece – adding some shades, damp patches and of course fallen leaves (made of birch seeds).

As you can see – the ruins are really big and can be decoration of any wargames table. They shoulf fit fantasy games, as well as S-F ones. There are many more terrain sets available from StudioLevel that are worth to have a look. I will paint some more in the following days.

Barricade

Second terrain pierce from NEW Bantam Alley I Wargames Resin Bits & Terrain Kickstarter is finished. This time it’s a barricade consisting of brick walls, barrel and some other post-apocalyptic stuff. Just like the previously painted fuel depot, it is also very detailed and painting it was a real pleasure. Such barricade can really be a nice decoration of any gaming table.
