About the Project

Love the idea of a game that can be both fantastical and historical. Turns out it plays pretty well also. Now I'm looking forward to playing with painted minis

Having a few good days suitable for airbrushing towards the end of my holidays I decided to take a break at squinting at Flames of War soldiers and get a good start on my Joan of Arc terrain. Not only did I see a great oportunity to work up some 1/100 terrain to use with FoW but thought it cant hurt to up the atmosphere when playin JoA. I figured the most effective use of time and a great start point was to give it all a good sketch style zenith under paint.

The trees and shrubs were an exception though as they had such a great green to start with so I switched to green tones and shades when painting them but otherwise included them in pretty much the same processes.

Below might be pretty boring to many out there using similar methods but I thought to record the results anyway.

Step 1. Black undercoat focusing on the shadowed areas and recess from underneath before doing a quick all round over spray.

Step 2. The zenith coat of warm white. In this case I used citadels screaming skull with %50 white airbrush colour

Step 4. Black wash. There was a lot to wash here so I made a quick batch of home brew with 50/50 matt medium and water, a few drops of flow improver, a few more drops of rinse aid to up the capillary action a little and a few drops of black India ink to colour

Step 4.  Drybrush highlight. I cant tell you how much easier this was using a cheap make-up brush. The idea isn’t my own, I discovered it watching one of Dana Howls great vids https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LGYWYDv8Gq0

Interestingly I found I didn’t need to go through the whole wipe off step as I usually do with dry brushing. At this point my wet pallet was merely damp and I found laying down a good dollop  of paint to one side then gradually gathering it up in swirling action was a fairly easy way to control the amount of paint in the fine soft fur of the make-up brush. What’s more, if the paint ran out then I could use a wet brush to activate a bit and keep a little more from going to waste.
