Quick Building Paint Test
Historicon starts today, so I won't have time to properly paint these buildings, but I thought I would lay down some quick airbrush work in order to see how the buildings might look on the table. I like it. The mold is a bit rough, but I think a cities worth of these buildings on the table is going to look really good. I might lighten the white up a bit, and add more blue to the slate roofs. Other than that, I plan to use, red, green, and blue as the trim colors. I am not sure about straying from a white-ish tone for the plaster areas though. Normandy looks pretty consistent in that regard. The interior of this building is not painted (the floor is not even in), but once it is, I think it will be much more interesting. I plan to user period wallpaper and colors for the interior, so there will be bits of design and color showing through the windows and holes. I'll pay considerable more attending to painting the rest of the buildings. I just had to see one of them in color.
So what would you build with this many houses? Would you make any changes to the color scheme?
See you guys at Historicon!
