Miles' rocky hills

Here are Miles' rocky hills.
They are very nice Miles.
I can see them looking good in a 2021/2022 game

Some people are just life's over-achievers. I got used to that at school...  :(

Impressive stuff, Les!

Les - that's an impressive range of projects.

1812 - excellent period, I painted some of the Knuckleduster Miniatures (28mm) for skirmishes and some forces in 6mm for battles such as Crysler's Farn, etc.

If only some enterprising 15mm manufacturer, known for their high standards of their sculpting and moulding would take an interest in some of the 19th century European wars...

Miles - I like those hills!

Miles along with the cork bark, have you used DAS clay or another brand.  The colour gives a very good start to warm country terrain.  A lot of Vietnam seems to be this red dirt, I need some for my Fire base.

Here is an update on the Rocky terrain pieces. The two 6 inc Square pieces are Objective pieces. One that Stewart wanted me to do for him, and I done one for myself.
The other two 12 x 6 pieces are for Western game,mainly.
I ve still got a lot of painting, washes and dry brushing to do. I must admit I normally do projects like this in the summer months, then you can put the pieces in the fresh air and sunlight to help with the drying processes.

Yes a XRoad objective for the Desert as well as 2 smooth hills,2 Smooth hills with some grass and 2 Rocky hills for Desert type terrain.
The Brown you see the Rocky terrain is only a base coat as there are several different colours to go on to them. I just wanted a darker colour on first, I have got “Iraqi Sand” and “Ivory” to go onto them yet ? I wont know wether I ll have to do a yellow dry brush on the sand as yet,I see how good the BandQ copy of Iraqi Sand is first.
I might try and get that Yellow Ocher at sometime you mentioned from the range ?

I hope you're getting a DIY shop clone of those Vallejo colours, Miles, rather than using expensive paints on scenery (no matter how lovely it is)?

To be honest, I will use any paint as long as the colour is right, if I had to use a big proportion of an Vallejo colour, if the effect is right then it is worth it.
I used the first of the clone sand last night, so later on I will see what colour it has dried and become ?

Looking very good, Miles. The multiple layers of washes and dry brushing really add depth, texture and subtle variation.
