The Feywood Shrine is the perfect centerpiece for your Shadowfey Wilds table, whether the adventuring party has sought it out or have stumbled upon it in their travels. For the shrine, we painted it as though a tree had been carved into the likeness of an ancient god, and so modified the normal Contorted Trees color scheme to represent an aged wood tone that works well next to the original scheme. Here are the quick and easy steps on how we achieved this.
For the Feywood shrine we sprayed the model with a Chaotic Red primer as a good base for the rocks and dirt, painting a basecoat of Ultramarine Blue over all the roots and the shrine. We then dry brushed all the wood sections with Alien Purple as it will form the base for both the roots and main shrine. we then followed the Painting Shadowfey: Wild Woods guide from step 3) onwards to paint the roots, branches and base of the shrine, in order to help tie the piece in with the aesthetic of the rest of the Shadowfey Wilds. We are now ready to focus on the shrine itself.
Step 1) Heavy dry brush of Steel Legion Drab (Citadel).
Step 2) Dry brush with Monster Brown (Army Painter).
Step 3) Lighter Drybrush with a 1:1 mix of Monster Brown (Army Painter) and Stone Golem (Army Painter).
Step 4) finally, apply a light dry brush of Stone Golem (Army Painter) across the aged wood areas.
The aged-wood tone is now complete and complements the slightly lighter tone of the living wood without distracting from it.
