And that's a wash!

Had a pleasant surprise finding these at the local stationary store the other day. As I have some Greeks with pesky linen armour on the go I thought I would use them to experiment with a custom wash.

I used Future/Klear and water in a roughly 2:1 mix, and added in peat brown and black - also at about 2:1 - topping up with Klear/Water in the same ratios until the mix looked good to the eye.

Here it is slapped on a Xyston Theban. Figure on the left was undercoated gray with white drybrushed over that; figure on the right shows how it looks after the wash and before any further highlighting has been done.

It's a little bit grainy on close inspection, but a highlight and varnish should sort that out, I'd think.

Not too bad, but I might try to go thinner to see if I can keep the need for highlighting to a minimum, and in future I'll use more Future and less water to see if that will reduce the graininess.

Decorative Buildings

We went to the furniture store yesterday to pick up a new chest of drawers, and wouldn't you know it but they had some decorations in that looked quite passable for buildings.

15mm with church.

1/72 with house / store.

28mm fantasy with house.

I picked up three packs, and at $5 for the above three buildings each I thought they were a bargain!
