The shack on the other hand got plenty of drybrushing in brown and tan to bring out the texture in the wood, before the thatch getting similar treatment from tan up to cream.
Then it was just a case of adding some Vallejo smoke to dirty up the walls and make them look lived in, and they were finished:
(the hanging curtain in place of a door on the shack was inspired by flicking through my copy of 'How to make Wargames Terrain', and was a dried out and cut down baby wipe glued into place, shaped and then soaked in watered down PVA).
Excitingly, this is the first thing this year that lets me cross something off of the Challenge:
- Finish something old
Finish a piece of terrain
- Prep all of the monkeys in the monkey box
- Paint all of the miniatures in a boxed game
- Play a board game with fully painted miniatures
- Finish a complete skirmish force for a project (at least 16 miniatures, unless it's for a much smaller scale game like Batman)
- Repaint something (either a miniature that I have previously painted, or one that was received painted
- Convert a miniature and show WIP pic
- Finish the last member of the Nextwave team
- Complete the classes project (potentially adding the races from the Players Handbook to the mix)
- Add at least 4 entries to the Monstrous Alphabet Project
- Average at least a miniature a week by the end of the year (so, paint 52 miniatures)
- End the year with the Tally in the positive!
- Mystery additional structure
- Crates and barrels
- a playing surface!
