In my previous post I talked about a piece of terrain that gave me the willies every time I thought about painting the thing. Well based on some excellent suggestions posted here and on The Miniatures Page, I have taken the plunge and started to paint the piece. I started with the ground and here is what it looks like after a few layers of paint.
These 4 photos have a base coat of Raw Umber for ground. The flash on my camera makes it more red than it actually looks in person.
These 5 photos show a dry brushing of Burnt Umber. This layer is rather heavy for a dry brush but it helped with the look.
