I did try something new on these models, MIG Pigments. They work well and are pretty easy to use. I took some of the powder and mixed it with some Enamel Thinner. Since I used acrylic paints for the models, I brushed on a matt varnish to seal the paint. I then bushed pigment onto the buildings. Once the thinner dried it left a nice dusty look to the buildings.
Here's a link to my first post about the buildings: Painting Italian Buildings
Here are some pictures of the finished products.
On this one I used the MIG Pigment Black Smoke and brushed it along the edges of the collapsed building areas etc.
I have also decided to base the buildings on 6"x6" artist boards. I'm thinking it will give some uniformity to the "towns" when they are placed on the table and it will help define areas for combat. I'm looking for suggestions on the best way to do this. Any suggestions?
Here's some prelim photos:
Any suggestions from those with better experience on doing this is greatly appreciated.
