Tabletop World Stone Bridge WiP


 
 Here is the fabulous new Stone Bridge from Tabletop World.  It's still under construction as you can see but its a great model... just as you've come to expect from these guys!

It was also a good opportunity to knock some rust off the painting by walking through a process piece that should be familiar and easy... famous last words!  I got off to a rocky start by priming the model in a dark brown... this hasn't worked our bad but I want to sit it next to the rest of the village to see if the hues are a good match... have to wait for them to show up to see.







Normally... I now recall... I work up through the greys and then line with Secret Weapon Sewer Water to  cover holes and add some definition.  This time I discovered quite a lot more primer holes than usual and, after the base grey coat ended up washing the whole model, except the shingles for some odd reason) with Sewer Water!  Take that pin holes!

I then repeated the stone grey base (Reaper Stone Grey) as a medium coverage dry(ish) brush and move on to Reaper Weathered Stone for a light high light brushing.  You can see the two steps side by side on these guard huts.  I kinda like doing the green this way as it takes way less time.

I'll have to find and get me foldio 2 set up and see about controlling some of the light a bit better... the huts kinda washed out a bit but hopefully the difference between steps is visible.





















On to the whitewash process.  Watered down GW Deneb Stone followed by a brush up of P3 Menoth White Base and finally a Menoth white Highlight top brush... all this over the brown primer coat liberally washed with Sewer Water.

I'm not sure but I feel like this came out with a little bit warmer tone I the whitewash process... I'll have to look and see if I've changed something...

Next I'll move on to the roofs followed by widows and details... then tidy up the over brush and placing the loose bits round.  I think I'll leave the lamps socket-able for transport and add a magnet for the winch over the loading doors.


 Anyway... feels good to be working on the tiny toys again!

  1. Go go secret weapon washes! You are a brave brave man...i would have waited till I knew the tones were matching the previous buildings before proceeding! Hopefully the layers of work will make any differences negligible!

    1. Haha! Thanks Greg!... I think it'll be ok... but I am... a little nervous!... mostly about the undercoat impact.. The surface paint tone variation should be fine and the textures remain the same which will tie it all together...... but still.....!!!!!

    2. Fingers crossed. I just batch airbrushed a base color on 22 bases hoping to save an hour or so of brush work, and the tone is ever so slightly different....Here's hoping it all works out for both of us!
