About the Project

This is the resin junkyard terrain set from Kraken Wargames. It landed about 18 months ago and the time has come to get some paint on it.

Complete Junk!

For now, this is the final batch of my terrain set from Kraken Wargames. It’s more of the same except there were a few tiny bits lurking at the bottom of the bag. Knowing my tendency to lose things, I lumped them all together on some spare plastic, shoved in some plasticard girder, blended it all in with Milliput and slapped on some sand.

I then painted the lot, just the same as the previous batch. I think my improvised base-o-barrels fits in just fine.

A few more shots of the final(ish) batch.

And finally, here’s the whole lot. I’m very pleased with this, and very tempted to pick up the few bits of this terrain set that I didn’t get through the Kickstarter.

Today I'll take a look at painting this piece from the second batch.Today I'll take a look at painting this piece from the second batch.
I start with a rust primer. Rather than cake it on, trying to get into all the nooks and crannies with the rattle can, I've stabbed some black brush primer in there. Yes it looks a bit of a mess now, but it just doesn't matter on a piece like this.I start with a rust primer.

Base coats on. I’ve cheated a bit here. On the previous batch, I’d done the proper basecoats for all the colours (e.g. the petrol drums). This was blue for the blue parts, green for green, etc. I found that with a brown wash on, all the colours looked about the same so this time I’m undercoating a lot just brown. In this piece, the yellow bit did look different, so it does get its own base coat.

Washes on. The whole piece gets some Army Painter Strong Tone slopped on and I’ve hit anything that’s to be black with Dark Tone (for Citadel fans: Agrax Earthshade and Nuln Oil respectively).

The next stage is to highlight the ground. This another fairly messy drybrush, not taking any care what I go over. I’ll recover some of the paint on some of the parts; the rest is just bonus dirt!

The first set of highlights are the blacks, the rust and the yellow. These are the bits where I know what colour I have to use. I’ll then decide the rest to try and make the final piece look good (in a filthy way).

And here’s the finished piece. Here I’ve highlighted the other colours and added some lovely rust. It can look a bit crude up close but from three feet away it’s the business.

Moving on to the second batch. It’s a similar mix of big bits; small bits; low bits and tall bits.

It’s blended in nicely with the first batch, and there’s a final batch to follow.

This is some of the Scatter Terrain Kickstarter from Kraken Wargames. It’s about a third of the large box of stuff they sent me about 18 months ago. It’s time to get it painted, and it’s a good opportunity for me to play with desaturated colours (a fancy way of saying I mixed a lot of burnt umber in with all the other colours).
