I’ve finally finished two of the many 28mm scale wooden Commercial Style Buildings by “Wargame-Model-Mods” I plan to construct in order to play “Across The Death Earth” by “Dead Earth Games”. As the rule set is based in a post-apocalyptic environment and designed as a skirmish game I want to be able to populate a 3x3 table with as much ‘cover’ as possible.
A previous posting as to how I paint these buildings can be found here: http://fantorical.blogspot.co.uk/2014/03/wargame-model-mods-wip-part-two.html
addition I am slowly painting up the five “West Wind Productions” models I plan
to use as the start of my State gang. All the figures are from their “Empire Of
The Dead” range and I’ve now finished most of the blue undercoat on the British
bobbies, and even started double-washing them with black shade. I am slightly
struggling with the finer detail of their black and white sleeve markings, but
think I have worked out an approach using a black ink wash prior to some black and white
line work, that is both reasonably quick and produces a neat result. I’ve also
managed to get some areas painted on my Queen ‘Queenie’ Victoria gang leader
model, having painted her blue sash and the majority of her light machinegun.
