Today's post is really to highlight some of the progress, and also some of the difficulties I've had so far.
|Table drying. The paint is a mixture of a DIY Store "Tamiya Flat Earth" brew and a regular, run of the mill brown. (50/50). I have lots leftover and this is my standard color for basing troops now! I am super happy with that look.|
|Dry brushing begins! I am really digging the "parched" look. This is exactly the look I was originally going for last year.|
My course of action to deal with this was to apply the flock, more or less, to the same places it had been, but in patches as opposed to large covered areas, so the brown shows through. It almost looks like trails or water runoff areas.
|I definitely got the look I was going for. [click]|
|The lighting washed out the texture and the detail and unfortunately makes it brighter looking than it is.|
|the hill turned out very nicely as well. It's flocked now. I like how closely the texture on my stands matches the table surface.|
|Note the large darker areas. These are where the flock used to be. I'm having to compensate for that now.|
|Some of the cool transitions and texturing I have now on the table.|
So I'm onto something here. I flocked the table and then applied some more highlighting with my drybrush color to work on the transition between the parched, baked earth and the green flocked areas. It's not bad. I'm not completely happy with it, but then my wife reminded me I probably never will be. I'll try and throw up a post that shows how it looks with the flock.
The hills look awesome. I could sell these and make some money off of them. I'm half tempted to redo all of my Warzone hills to match this texture/flock combination. More to follow!
