Abrusio's painting plog

PostWed Oct 16, 2013 7:04 am

**EDIT : this thread was named "Frozen City painting plog (by Abrusio)" but since then I updated it with a lot more things so I changed the title**

My project for my table of dropzone Commander is to build a abandonned city, frozen in a deep and very harsh winter. Buildings covered with ice-sickles, cars and buses covered with snow... To go along this scenery, I decided to paint the UCM with a digital artic camo.

The first step was to paint the UCM, and here is the finished result :

Next I began assembling the buildings, but there are still a lot of work to do :

Very much impressed with the paintjob on the models and the Winter concept, should look really good.

Awesome work on the terrain and the digi cammo. I've left more feedback on your blog.

Is that the scheme your aiming for? Used by British NATO forces in Berlin during the 80s? It's a very difficult one to recreate, I tip my hat to thee good sir! :o

I wasn't aware of this scheme, I designed it myself by choosing colours I have and that would work in that setting. I have an airbrush so it is not very difficult, but it is very time consuming (and nerve breaking when the masking tape removes the paint).

Thank you for your comments, I am still working on the buildings, and I have 3 almost finished (my first goal is to replace all the buildings from the starter set).

Very impressive. Brilliantly and cleanly executed. Bulidings are looking good too.

I began painting the small buildings. I can already imagine playing heated battles in the frozen streets of the city...

An update after spending some time doing other things (and painting other miniatures also).

I changed my colour scheme...
