I’m curious as to how other people are painting these amazing models. I have a few tricks of my own but it would be great to expand my ability’s and see others.
So this is how I do stone, it’s pretty basic but looks good on pretty much anything.
Step 1 – prime with black
Step 2 – dry brush dungeon grey
Step 3 – dry brush ash grey
Step 4 – Light dry brush of arid earth
All the paints I used were army painter

I use the exterior paint (acrylics) from Home Depot – you can buy test samples in a million different colors and they are way cheaper then using expensive miniature paints. I thin it with water and it also works as a primer so you don’t have to prime before painting. Got 3 different colors for dry brushing as well and they have worked really well.
For details on the models I do use Army Painters and Vallejo paints.

I’ll start with the roof.
I started with black primer and then went on to do a heavy dry brush of army painters Dragon Red then a light dry brush of Army Painters lava orange. After it had dried I then gave the roof a watered down wash, I like to do a one part water to one part Army Painters Red Tone Garde Meubles Marseille. Sometimes this technique with the wash can leave the roof too bright if so I just go over it with the wash again.
Vielleicht sollte ich zu Ihnen kommen, um zu sehen, wie Sie es gemacht haben, und vielleicht Ihre Dienste in Anspruch nehmen.

I second @aylizia on this one. Started using Daler Rowney Graduate Acrylics as base coat/primer. At £3 for 120ml it’s great value for money.
After base I shade the model, then drybrush with 2-3 different colours. Finally highlight any details you want to stand out.
For drybrushing and shading I use Citadel paints.

The recently released Ruined Small Cottage is going to look extremely cool once I’ve finished it. The detail on this thing is amazing, lots of little bits of brick and roof tiles inside, and the door buster in. It’s very cool. Best of all there’s undamaged version which means the characters in My RPG all get to see the the house of the the towns widower get burnt to the ground while they watch… Dragons can be a pain
Once I’m done I’ll up a quick run though of how I did some of the complex bits, so keep an eye out

That would be awesome. I agree, dragons can be a pain, much like children.

Hay guys finished the ruined small cottage,It was heaps of fun to paint, Very satisfying. some of the more interesting things to paint were the roof and the interior walls
I’ll start with the roof.
I started with black primer and then went on to do a heavy dry brush of army painters Dragon Red then a light dry brush of Army Painters lava orange. After it had dried I then gave the roof a watered down wash, I like to do a one part water to one part Army Painters Red Tone. Sometimes this technique with the wash can leave the roof too bright if so I just go over it with the wash again.
Step 1 black primer
Step 2 dragon red
Step 3 lava orange
Step 4 red tone wash
The interior walls.
As with the roof I started with black primer and then gave the plastered parts of the wall a very heavy dry brush of Army Painters Arid Earth. Then after that dried I did a wash with Army Painters medium tone. I then gave it a dry brush of Arid Earth again making sure not to paint right in to the very edges as the bit of a gap left makes for a nice weathered look.
Step 1 Black primer
Step 2 Arid Earth
Step 3 Medium tone
Step 4 Arid Earth

Looks great, do you have a few more photos from different angles?
March 6, 2019 at 8:23 pm #139558
I do. If you look at the pic of the outside rear of the building it gives a good indication of what the inside wall is like (I painted the outside wall the same as the inside wall)
One of the latest buildings from the lads at printablescenery.com just finished being painted up.
