Happy New Year to all.

As my NW Europe games have been lacking buildings of any kind, Santa kindly delivered a selection of Sentry Models. An added bonus, the wife said that she will paint them all. This is her test piece and welcomes any comments.

U might want to add a bit of flock to the creeping vine, but apart from that, looks good to me... Cool

Thats nice Smile I agree with Johan to give the vine a little 3D.

Dear Jezamonos....

not only has Mrs Jezamonos bought you a stack of delightful sentry models, she is painting them for you as well?
i think i hate you! Wink

in all seriousness, Mrs J, thats cracking work!!!

as others have said, some clump flock on the wall vine will give it the
"feel" of vegitation, flocking the lawn out back would also have a similar
effect!

to be honest the painting of the house is bang on! (excellent work on the
windows MrsJ!) and as it stands is something to be proud of....
(thats to say jez you should be proud of the model AND yer Mrs!)

some tips....
it might be worth some thin washes here and there (use a variety of
browns rather than black as these are too harsh) to make the difference
between the walls and the windows or corner stones pop out a little more,
another thing you notice is that real buildings tend to be dirty the closer
you get to the ground (where heavy rain chucks up mud and dirt onto the
wall)

hopefully this pic illustrates some of what i've waffled on about!


if the wash is thin you can always build it up, rather than be too heavy
and ruin any effect you may be trying to achieve!

HTH Mrs J?

rob. Very Happy

Thanks for all the comments guys, I will put her to work on making the improvements ! Wink

It has taken me 7 years to get her to paint something, though she still refuses to try a mini - maybe after another 7 years !
