Baccus 6mm North African Buildings - Part Two

Continuing on with my current Middle Eastern 6mm themed project, I've painted up three more North African buildings from my old packet of "Baccus 6mm" resin Eastern Mediterranean buildings.

Having previously shied away from the 'almost bleach white' colour scheme found on the "Baccus 6mm" website, I undercoated all of the models with a double layer of "Vallejo" Iraqui Sand and then washed them with "Citadel" Agrax Earthshade. Each building was then dry-brushed with more "Vallejo" Iraqui Sand before I applied a final highlight of White. The windows were 'picked out' using "Citadel" Abaddon Black, whilst the doors painted using a combination of "Vallejo" Heavy Sienna" and "The Army Painter" Strong Tone Quickshade.
 
Disappointingly I did attempt to replicate 'picking out' the dark roof posts which protrude from the front and back facings of two of the (smaller) buildings, as per the painted examples on the company's website. However I did not have the skill to be so meticulously precise with my brush tip and ended up simply splodging black paint all over the place. As a result I decided a painting retreat was the better part of valour on this occasion and settled for simply washing around the posts in order to provide the features with some shadow.
 Finally I've finished undercoating another three of the 28mm Bakemono demons that come as part of the  "Bushido" Savage Wave Starter Set by "GCT Studios".

  2. Simon, many thanks. Looking forward to getting the buildings involved in a 6mm battle report at some point soon. I'm really looking forward to the Bushido minis too, and hope to do some sort of batch painting coverage of them over the next few weeks.
