4" Drybrush Day

Today I drybrushed the 9 terrain boards, with a mid-brown and then a highlight, using the biggest brush I could find!

 Here's a board drying in what passes for sun around here.

Here are a couple of boards with the first highlight.  I hope to apply a very sparse second highlight, tomorrow.  The colour I went for is a sort of raw umber with a bit of tan in it.  It looks a bit grey in the photos, but it is slightly browner IRL.

The boards will look (somewhat) less austere when the fields and tufts of vegetation are added.  I feel an awful lot better about the project, as they are starting to look like something a man could stick a wargame figure on!

Looking really good Simon and looking forward to seeing the finished terrain. Its been rather sunny up here in the wild woolly north and likewise been making terrain today.
Cheers Paul

Hi Paul, I can see why you make so much terrain. There is a compulsive quality about making it, creating a little world of ones own.

It looks like Great Britain has stolen our sunny weather ;) Here (In Spain) is imposible to leave anything outside this winter.

Great work!!

Einar, my parents are near Marbella, and they have been telling me tales of horror about your Spanish weather!

Thanks chaps. I'm hoping to grab an hour or two to work on them again, later; still so much to do!

Looks like it'll be a fantastic asset when it's completely finished - big "wow" factor I'd say

Looking good, I'm really enjoying the progress of your boards and look forward to the finished table, reckon it'll look the business.
