Big Project Blues

The problem with big projects like city scapes is that you do so many repetitions of the same work.  Take these shots, for instance: Two more buildings base coated and ready for The Dip.  But we’ve seen this before, haven’t we.  The only real new thing in this shot is the...

The Promised Land: Work In Progress

Just as promised yesterday, I’ve got the first of a series of work in progress posts for all you faithful reader out there.  Most of the work here was accomplished over the weekend: The brown portions of the ground here were primed, a little sand added, and then primed...

An Itch Not Fully Scratched

Wha-hey!  Guess who still has the gumption to slap some paint around?  That’s right, it’s your old pal, Warren. Check it, peeps, the public utilities board is totes complete: It’s a little light on cover, but it’s the heaviest board in the box. So it should be rugged enough...

Obligatory Still Kicking Post

Couple of quick shots of what my little mans are going to be seeing when they fight over these nine square feet of battlefield....

Big City Update

Dirtied up the city blocks this week with a coat of The Dip.  You can see that it took some experimenting.  The roof on the building in the lower left is a little dark for my tastes, but it does help to break up the buildings a little more....

Painting the Town

You probably noticed that this has become a weekly blog.  I burned through my backlog pretty quick.  At this point, I’ll just plug away at the new work during the week and throw up odd thoughts when I get the chance.  Sunday night is the best night for posting,...

Big Time Terrain

One of the things that I’m trying to do with my wargaming is keep everything compact.  This post details one of the reasons for that. When I jumped back into the hobby, I really didn’t look very hard.  I just bought up a couple sheets of foamcore and a...
