Okay, so this is the last of my terrain posts for a while. I promise! I finished up the Zombies of Karr-Keel commission, so there will be several blog posts directed towards zombies in the near future. But, for now, I've got some more terrain that I finally finished. Although, to be honest, after looking at these pictures, I want to make some changes.
First is the Sigmarite Chapel. I bought this as part of the large fantasy terrain set GW released sometime around 2006-2007. Most of it was painted around 2009. I don't remember how I did most of it, to be honest, but I use quite a bit of brown and ochre oils to weather the stucco. I also attempted to paint the "medallion" over the front door to resemble the friezes of ancient Greece. If you look closely, you can also see some of the old GW flock (the same thing I use on my epic models) used to simulate moss growing on the sides of the stones at the foundation.
I also finally finished the Watch Tower. Much like the chapel, this had lots of oil streaks using brown, green, and ochre oil paints. This was one of my first attempt at this particular form of weathering, and you can see where the streaks are a little too well defined. I also applied some brown oil washes to the stones at the base to simulate years of dirt being kicked up by horses, soldiers, and the wind. Finally, most of the metals were painted to resemble rust, indicating that the tower guards just kind of let things go. I tried to have a little fun with the base as well, I've added a barrel from the Empire Cannon sprue, a random wheel leaning up against the side, and some firewood made from balsa.
