We lost our beloved Molly Dog today.
I spent yesterday running demos for Wreck-Age at the Rock-Con convention in Rockford, IL. It was a very long, but fun day. I think we might have had the coolest looking table there! I supplied all the terrain, and Hyacinth Games supplied most of the minis. We ran a bunch of demos, as well as one longer game. It was all very well received! We also did a bunch of networking for both Chicago Skirmish Wargames, and Hyacinth. My fellow Chicago Skirmish wargamer, Wild Thing Mike ran a spaceship game that people seemed to really enjoy. I included a picture of his set up in the gallery.
Here are the pictures:
The barn is done. I added rust on the barrels, and some grass tufts.
The pond is done. I added grass tufts, tall reeds, and some bushes.
The windmill is rusty and done.
The water tower is rusty and done. This piece looks so awesome. They all look better in person!
I started rusting the trailers, and I think I may have been a little heavy handed on them. I am trying to figure out how to tone it down. I will go a little easier on the other 6.
Here is the pond with coat 3. I went a little darker green with this layer.
Here is the pond with the 4th layer of water. This was a clear layer.
Here is the pond with a 5th clear layer of water, and flock. Somehow, I let some air bubbles form on this layer, which disturbs the perfect smooth surface. Overall, I am happy with the way it turned out. I will be adding some tall grasses and small grass tufts to this before I call it finished.
Here are shots of the trailers after a brown wash to make them look old and filthy.
Here are the trailers after some detail work and drybrushing. Rust is next.
The clotheslines, signposts, and barn are mostly finished. There will be a little rust added.
All the windows have been replaced. I also started basecoating the other bits... boxes and barrels are finished. Silver stuff is next.
Unfortunately it does not show well in pictures, but I have poured 2 layers of water into the pond. The green floating stuff is actually layers of different green paint on the base. The water is also dyed green. Each layer will be a different color to add to the murky look. I plan on doing at least 2 more layers. In person, there is a sense of depth.
