Some more work on the current group of Stalingrad terrain. Prepping/detailing before batch painting!
Yay! More Cruel Seas have arrived on my doorstep.
Apologies for the iPhone photos. Wasn’t happy with the base that came with the British Bristol Beaufighter Mk Ic airplane from the Royal Navy Fleet box for Cruel Seas, so I decided to try something different. 1/8″ acrylic rod superglued into a drilled out 60mm MDF base. Applied some layers of Vallejo Water Effects Texture (Pacific Blue) over airbrushed blues, then I added some washes and highlights for waves. My first attempt at water effects, so I’m happy with the results. Still need to finish painting that boat though!
Motivated by a club event this past weekend, I spent the night re-basing and touching up my Bolt Action Soviet army. Went with a winter urban theme to suit my ongoing Stalingrad terrain project. Better photos to come in the near future.
Base coats down and up next are washes, weathering, highlights, and basing.
Calling this done until I track down some proper decals and a longer clear, acrylic rod on which to rebase it.
Finally had a chance to get a game of Cruel Seas on the table. ~760 points each, scenario two, Germany vs. Great Britain.
Good time. Need to finish painting the fleet.
All-in-all, took about an hour (aside from dry times) to complete.
- Stynylrez Black Primer
- VMC bronze airbrushed on leaving the recesses dark
- Citadel Nuln Oil Gloss all over, followed by Matte Varnish
- Drybrush of VMC Bronze and VMA Aluminum mixed
- Citadel Nihilahk Oxide applied selectively in recessed and watered down on the model
- VMA Dead White airbrushed from above
- Citadel Valhallan Blizzard applied lightly.
- The plinth was various greys airbrushed on with the above bronze effect applied to decorative bits.
- The basing follows my previous tutorial.
