Painting update ; forge world weather top   Leave a comment

The ruined tower of Amon Sul by forge world. Had this a while and been waiting for a chance to paint it.

I found zorpazorp’s video guide on painting walls and forge world weather top quite helpful. Though for some reason he stops after the initial painting steps and before applying the wash in his live videos.

Type Zorpazorp and search youtube to find his channel.

Any way once I painted it and applied washes as instructed I then varnished it. I am not really sure I want to flock it as the flock might distract from it and of course ties it down to a grass effect. Here it can be used in any terrain from green grass to even desert or blasted wasteland. Also in the film it is indeed very grey to give that night effect and muted in the famous scene. So I have left it for the moment as it is. Maybe I will get round one day to making a hill with steps to put it on and decorate that piece.

Looking forward to using it someday, being quite excited by the announcement of a specific journey of the fellowship source book.
