Have been working with the 19th Century Walkways I assembled for my game with Necron099 as they really need some color.  Like the Pneuma Post model, I used artist’s acrylics from Liquitex and Golden as they are much thicker than my model paints so work well with MDF.  I don’t mind the variegation color as it adds a sense of age and weathering.  Living in the San Francisco Bay Area I found myself inspired by the reddish brown of the Golden Gate Bridge when choosing my colors.  I wanted to keep it simple and in earth tones.  Since the surface of the walkway is such a visually prominent part I decided that was a good place to add some texture and detail.  Parallel lines of ivory make for nice wood grain and give the pieces a little polish, in my opinion.  This scheme has the added benefit of being easy to do, in future, with parts still on frames.

The gallery is of my early tests as well as where I have sanded the pegs that hold the railings.  The rest of the photos are of my first finished pieces.  Note that the railings are detachable, merely in place for photography and sealant. I’d like to avoid adding any thickness to the pegs I so carefully sanded.  I’ll be working on the long sections tonight.
