From the Shed: 40k terrain.

I was sick of playing kill team with terrain that was only undercoated so I’ve started a puysh to get it all painted. I painted these statues and the ruins first.

Basic acrylic paint job with an oil wash to finish. For the small amount of effort I put into them they look pretty good.

  1. Simple but effective! πŸ™‚ I like the statues!

  2. Sometimes simple is all you need! Kill team eh? I’m about to go the other way as we have just taken delivery of Dead Zone by Mantic games.

    (I’ll be going simple on the scenery there too πŸ˜‰)

    Cheers Roger.

  3. Nice work dude, how easy are the oil washes to deal with? Do you need solvents to clean the brushes?

      Oil washes are great- just make sure that you seal what ever you are going to apply them too as they can lift acrylic paint. They seem to flow and sit much better than the acrylic ones I’ve tried- especuially for bigger models. Also a few tubes of oil paint and some odourless thinner is much more cost effective than GW or Army Painter washes. Given how much Turps stinks and how that gives me a headache I’ve gone on to odourless stuf I get from the art shop in town. Bit pricer but worth it imo.
