|Paras hoping to find a few packets of Gauloises|
To add extra interest I've added wooden boards using coffee stirrers to the edges of the roof and the base of the upper floor. I've also swapped the chimney for another from a farmhouse kit. Here's the basic MDF building.
I also decided to paint the floor boards - the pic is a bit blurry tho!
I textured the walls and chimney using a fine grit/ballast mix fixed using slightly watered PVA. Then it was on to the painting... The walls are simply the Foundry Moss Green triad. The gritty texture makes highlighting very easy.
The brick front was base coated in Foundry Conker Brown then I picked out a few individual bricks using the colours in the pic. Then wash with GW Agrax Earthshade to pick out the bricks. Finish by highlighting with the original colours.
The paving and steps were undercoated black then painted with the Foundry Slate triad.
After applying the base coat of Foundry Moss shade to the walls I washed the edges with GW Agrax as I wanted a slightly dirtier look for the walls.
Then I went back over the washed areas with the base coat to blend it in. This was followed by highlights using Moss mid then light.
The window frames, sign, shutters and boards were painted using the Foundry Boneyard triad.
I've added a couple of closed sets of shutters to the side where there are no windows simply because it will make the building more 'playable' in a game, i.e. a few troops can see out from that side.
The roof was tiled using Charlie Foxtrot tiling sheets then painted GW Corvus Black, then highlighted with the Foundry Slate triad.
I couldn't resist adding an advertising sign ... I may add a few more.
Thanks for looking!
