The last bits of prep for taking ‘Archers In France’ to Campaign in Milton Keynes this weekend. We’re there both days, although if for some strange reason you want to see me, I’m only there on the Sunday. And I’m on a deadline because Grahame is picking this lot up tomorrow!
So – today, after Andy had done some more stonework on the castle, I drybrushed the ink-washed stone heavily with cream acrylic. It’s pretty much the same trick as the limestone cliffs but it certainly works.
The finished article.
Basically it’s several massive chunks of XPS foam, stonework scribed in with a pencil, textured by rolling a ball of crinkled foil on it, painted grey, drybrushed white, ink washed brown, drybrushed cream.
After all. Why change a good thing if it works? 😀
Last up I finished off the wound markers. 10mm MDF disks, green on one side, red on the other, white ink pen to draw a stick figure on each, then black Sharpie to mark the wounded area. Fun, simple.
A number of Colonial listings have been listed this evening on ebay. They are mostly for the Sudan and I include sample photos here for anybody who is interested in purchasing them. This continues my re-orientation towards the smaller scales.
