Thanks man. It’s ended up pretty dusty looking and I’m okay with that. It’s more through chance than design, but I think the more muted tones will help make my relatively bright paint jobs on my models stand out more. Can’t wait to get a game in on it!I like that you’ve gone pale instead of dark or bright. Looking good!
Then it’s perfect! Hunting for models in pics is annoying. Too many have their lovely models match their lovely tables, so they’re lost in the pics.Thanks man.

I’ll do that, I put some posters on and stuck some wash or varnish or something on them and totally ruined them after that I decided I wouldn’t weather them, but this sounds like the way to do it. I’ve never done anything like this so I’m still learning!Looking great! I tend to stipple a brown over those posters so that they look more part of the wall, nothing mad just round the edges etc.
Thanks for the tips, I’ll give it all a go. I did wash the walls but I sprayed them with water first so most of it ran down the pieces.I usually put posters up with a thinned pva, then dab a bit of the wash I've used on the rest of the building on there. Get some streaks and tie them in nicely with the rest. But you might not have used a wash on the walls, they've got a nice dusty appearance.
This is three sets, I’ve got another three to do. Having the platforms done spreads the wall pieces out more and will give you more utility. One set will give a decent one-floor set up I reckon. But the higher you want to go, the more sets you’re gonna need.Looking really nice cardyfreak. How many sets of dark uprising terrain did you use to make this hive of yours. I've been looking at it to chop up and adapt to my own stuff but I'm still a bit stuck how far one box would get me.
They look really good though. Love the grime details and posters. Underhive essentials.
The terrain has been the longest haul for me. I’ve had most of it for a year or so but hadn’t done anything with it so I resolved to get some painted. I set a lot of the walls and columns up last summer and got a bit of paint on it but it sat for months unpainted. Then I just had a spurt of desire to finish it, got my stuff laid out on the dining table so I could crack on for a few days uninterrupted, and hammered away at it. The tiles were probably the easiest, you can easily get them done in a few hours. The walls and columns took me a bit longer but that’s cos I fannied on with them putting more detail in than is strictly necessary. But I think I had two or three good days worth of painting to get nine tiles and three sets of Mortalis terrain done. A cheap airbrush will more than pay for itself to accomplish this!Yes, I suspect and also fear it and I also feel a little blown away at the thought of it.
But my fault, I didn't want it any other way ;-) But it's OK.
