This project is here to supplement my Gaming Table project. In here I will post pieces that I find more appropriate for fantasy/historical games rather than generic scenery pieces. Of course some of these pieces may be suitable for some games in other genres.

Using three different tones of flock and some watered down PVA, I got the baselayer of flock onto the pieces.

I first added a drybrush of Vallejo Panzer Aces Light Mud (70.315) over the farmfields.

And then a coat of Citadel Shade Agrax Earthshade (99189953018) to add some more depth to the fields.

I brushed on a layer of AK Interactive Diorama Terrains Muddy Ground (AK8017) over the farm fields to make them look muddy.

It’s a big one.

I basecoated the rocks with Vallejo Model Color Basalt Grey (70.869) and the little pile of chaff with Vallejo Model Color Desert Yellow (70.977). I then coated the fences and the rocks with Secret Weapon Wash Algea (W013) and the pile of chaff with some Citadel Shade Agrax Earthshade (99189953018).

So while the washes were drying I painted up a set of scarecrows from Bad Squiddo Games that will be magnetized into the fields later.

When the washes had dried I put a heavy drybrush of Vallejo Model Color Medium Sea Grey (70.870) over the rocks and a drybrush of Vallejo Model Air Aged White (71.132) over the pile of chaff. I then proceeded to drybrush all of the fences with Vallejo Panzer Aces Old Wood (70.310) and finish off the rocks with a light drybrush of Vallejo Model Air White Grey (71.119). I then started to paint the little bits of rope on the fence gates with Vallejo Model Color Pale Sand (70.837) and finished that off with a bit of Citadel Shade Agrax Earthshade (99189953018).

Today's work.Today's work.

So now I want to seal in all the paintwork and then start working on making the fields actually look like dirt.

Getting messy with some filler and made the farmfields like this out of wood filler on the bases I made earlier. I stuck in some of the Renedra wattle fences to give the farmfields some flavour. I added a tree base in one as well and some strategically placed rocks to keep the fence up while the filler dries.

I covered the scrublands with filler as well, just to make it a bit more uneven and so that it doesn’t look perfectly flat.

For these pieces I am going to post every update as I do them rather than writing down what I did and then posting it all in one mega post. If I like it and it goes well, then projects in the future may follow a similar trend.

I am planning on making 2 pieces of farmland and 1 piece of scrublands. I got the pieces planned out yesterday and cut them out of ePVC foamboard today. Sanded the edges smooth and they’re ready for the next step.

This is the Brightspear’s Tower from Fenris Games. I started with a 130mm MDF base, I bevelled the edges and sealed it using filler. I then glued it to the base. I smoothed the transition between the resin piece and the base with some DAS modelling clay.

I primed the whole model in black and then basecoated it with Vallejo Model Air Rust (71.080).

To start of is an overbrush of Vallejo Model Color Basalt Grey (70.869) over all the stonework and a coat of Secret Weapon Wash Algea (W013) over the stone and the wood. I then applied a drybrush of Vallejo Model Color Medium Sea Grey (70.870) followed by a lighter drybrush of Vallejo Model Air White Grey (71.119) over the stone. For the wood I applied a drybrush of Vallejo Model Color Mahogany Brown (70.846) over the bar above the door and the floor on the roof and then a drybrush of Vallejo Panzer Aces Old Wood (70.310) over the door, the hatch on the roof and the sticking out wooden supports. To finish off the painting I painted the metal bits on the door with Vallejo Metal Color Burnt Iron (77.721) followed by a coat of Vallejo Model Wash Rust (76.506).

A baselayer of 3 tones of flock went down as I did before. Once that was dry and I shook off the excess I started little tufts, clump foliage and a bit of ivy to the tower.

This is the Lazy Well from Fenris Games. I started with a 130mm MDF base, I bevelled the edges and sealed it using filler. I assembled the well and stuck it to the base together with a base for a tree. I smoothed the transition between the resin piece and the base with some DAS modelling clay.

I primed the whole model in black and painted it with a coat of Vallejo Model Air Rust (71.080) with my airbrush.

The stonework first got an overbrush coat of Vallejo Model Color Basalt Grey (70.869). I coated the stonework and the wood with a coat of Secret Weapon Wash Algea (W013). After this I applied a heavy drybrush of Vallejo Model Color Medium Sea Grey (70.870). In hindsight I should have waited longer for the wash to fully dry before doing this. I then applied a drybrush of Vallejo Model Air White Grey (71.119) over the stone and a drybrush of Vallejo Panzer Aces Old Wood (70.310) over the support beams. And then for the roof I applied a drybrush of Vallejo Model Color Red Leather (70.818) over the tiles and a drybrush of Vallejo Panzer Aces Dark Rubber (70.306) over the central ridge structure.

I got all the nails and metal bits coated with Vallejo Metal Color Burnt Iron (77.721) and followed by a coat of Vallejo Model Wash Rust (76.506). I added a bit of Vallejo Earth Texture Dark Earth (26.218) to express a bit of use of where people would have walked. The rope is basecoated in Vallejo Panzer Aces Light Mud (70.315) and then received a coat of Citadel Shade Agrax Earthshade (99189953018). I drybrushed the dirt with some Vallejo Panzer Aces Light Mud (70.315). Now a coat of gloss varnish for protection and a coat of anti-shine to remove the shine of the gloss varnish.

I covered most of the base, at least where I wanted flocking, in a watered down coat of PVA. I added a couple of tufts to it to decorate it and sprinkled some leafs around the tree. I then followed up by flocking the base with 3 colours, the darker more in the shadowed or covered area’s. After the glue dried I shook off the excess and started adding tufts and little bits of clump foliage where the glue didn’t really take that well in order to fill up the gaps. I also added some tufts and clump foliage where I thought it would look good. I then added some light flock on places where I think moss would grow and on one of the sides I added some Ivy to add just a bit more flavour. After this is all dry I spray a bit of heavily diluted PVA over it all to seal in the scenery.
