"Across The Dead Earth" - WIP - Part Two

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
 
In 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.

  1. Loving the build, great work and that Queen Victoria is certainly a firm favourite of mine too.

    1. Thanks Michael. I can see my 'Queenie' dominating many a game with that light machinegun of hers.

  2. I really like the texturing on your ruined buildings. You wouldn't think they were made of wood.

    1. Cheers Vampifan. I'm not a fan of the textured paint - as its seems to go everywhere but on the wood - but when its all over and done with, it does produce some nice effects.

  5. All looks good, but some rubble (more cover) needed imo.

    1. Thanks Zabadak. I forgot to put in my posting that I like to keep my floor spaces clean because my rubble etc is glued on circular bases in order for me to mix and match both the looks and periods. I'll post up some pics next time to show what I mean :-)

  6. Top stuff. This is going to be another case of me seeing somebody else's idea and planning on 'borrowing' it later ;)

    1. Cheers Roy and don't worry, 'borrowing' is one of the big plus factors for all the blog postings I follow :-)
