Climbing that mountain of lead
So, I've finally gotten round to varnishing some of the ground vehicles that I painted for use in pulp/WWII settings. Some were painted over 18 months ago!
I didn't choose the best day for it - it could have done with being a few degrees cooler!
Still got the water vehicles to varnish.
Looking at the results, it would have been better to have used an airbrush but I don't have the money/space/experience for one. So it is what it is.
All models are 1/56 resin and come from Anyscale Models.
These scenery pieces all come from Iron Gate Scenery and a little unusually, I painted them for someone else, namely Tim. As I rule I don't paint for other people, all minifig painters know it can get a little stressful.
The varnish has dulled-down the colours a little - especially the metallics on the treasure pile. They are intended for use as additional scenery for HeroQuest though and will be handled a lot so varnishing seems prudent.
The scenery seems to be made from fairly high definition 3d printing, look closely however and the 'grain' is visible but it's not really an issue though, the quality is good enough, especially for scenery.
Design wise they're a little unremarkable but again, it's scenery - for use in a game which is good enough.
I play, I paint.
