I do try not to use this blog as a platform to moan about how busy work and “real life” is at the moment, especially because I’m lucky enough to really enjoy my job and generally have a good life. That said it is bloody busy right now! Anyway I’ve been struggling to find the time to tackle the number of miniature’s projects that I’d like to and when I have found time to paint over the last couple of months I’ve often lacked the focus or energy for anything complicated. Terrain, of course, is the perfect antidote for this – being suitably quick and dirty to do with the big brushes, lots of washes and copious drybrushing.
As it happens I also have a number of odds and ends from the Warcry starter set kicking around so these were the obvious target for my efforts. To begin with I had three barricades, one small…
…and one large.
Then we have a wooden bridge for those gaps even a blood-maddened Chaos warrior isn’t prepared to jump.
I also found a chunk of rubble which I painted up at the same time.
Then there are these two wells. Given that this is the Eightpoints, a war torn Chaos infested landscape, I decided to make these as unappealing to drink out of as possible. Even if Nurgle hasn’t been spreading his influence you’d have to be pretty desperate to try this water – then again desperate is exactly what most people in the Eightpoints are.
Hopefully by the time we’re into August things will be a bit quieter and more relaxed and I’ll have more time to break out the brushes. In the meantime I have found a bit of time for kitbashing some new models so I’ll try to get some pictures of those up soon.
