Finally settled on a paint thyme for my Games Workshop Terrain kits. I really like the colour scheme That GW went with for the the Nighthaunts army, so I thought I would try to do a whole table worth of terrain that matches the Realm of Death where the Nighthaunts hail from near Shyish Nadir.
I wanted the terrain to to have a ghostly feel to it and reflect the midnight blues and ghostly greens. To accomplish this I used the Citadel Paint APP and Citadel paints and washes and I used their approach for Teal,
Rocks and stone walkways. I start with a ‘Base’ of (Stegadon Scale Green) then a ‘Shade’ of Coelia Greenshade) then drybrush a ‘Layer” of (Sotek Green) then a light drybrush ‘Layer’ of (Temple Guard Blue) and finally my own touch I add ‘Dry” (Hellion Green) this I drybrush just the highest edges for a little more pop.
The Trees and wood arepainted w/ Rattle can of ‘Army Painter White’ then use Citadel ‘Technical’ (Nihilakh Oxide) using a wet pallet and adding just a dab of water to make it flow in the cracks better, then when its good and dry, drybrush ‘Layer” (WhiteScar) on the raised areas. When that’s done I used ‘Shade’ of (Coelia Greenshade) in the knotholes and the base of the trees for a shadow effect.
For open ground I have been using ‘Layer’ (Dark Reaper) then ‘Shade'(Nuln Oil) then when dry I lightly drybrush “Layer’ (Ahriman Blue) then finish with a realy light brybrushing of ‘Dry” (Hellion Green) and i link it kind of ties the colours together in an OK fashion 🙂
I really Like the Garden of Morr set, I’m just sad its taken me 2 years to final start painting the darn things. I’ve had them just rattle can gray for ever. The roofs of the crypts got painted with ‘Layer (Hashut Copper) then ‘Shade’ of (Agrax Earthshade) then i came back later and did oxidization with ‘Technical’ (Nihilakh Oxide) in light streaks then light drybrushing on just the raised areas and highest points w/ ‘Dry” (Hellion Green).
I still need to paint all details the grave stones and other details, hopefully soon. So i have also been trying to get my miniatures bases more in thyem with my terrain as well, as seen here my Steelhart’s Champions from ShadeSpire i gave their bases a ShadeGlass glow from the cracks in the bases, I really like the effect it give them.
Once I Finish all my Realm of Death terrain I will try to do them Real of Metal! using the descriptions from the AoS back stories and some insperation from the Art in the books I think i can do some interesting things!
thanks for stopping by. See you in the Wastland!
