Corner Hold

Painting the Corner Hold

There are a number of ways that you can paint your model. This guide shows you the techniques that we used to paint the Corner Hold. The same techniques can be applied to the Crows Nest and Gunners platform. These are the items you will need:

  • TEXTURED PAINT: Used to acheive a sandy/rough concrete effect. We used white Dulux Sandswept. However, if you don't want to use textured paint, you could mix sand into watered down PVA.

  • ACRYLIC PAINTS: Although any brand will work, we used Citadel paints because of their large range of natural colors. The following Citadel colors were used to paint the Sand structures: Bubonic Brown, Bestial Brown, Snakebite Leather, Golden Yellow, Bleached Bone.

  • ARTISTS BRUSHES: Small and large.
- INSTRUCTIONS -
1. Ensure that all parts are glued together before painting. You may also add a woodgrain texture to the door before proceeding.
2. Apply the textured paint (or Sand-PVA mixture) only to those parts of the model that are meant to be sandstone then allow to dry. Avoid painting the wooden door, stairs and extrusions.
3. Paint over textured surface with Bubonic Brown and wooden areas with Bestial Brown.
4. Lightly apply a broad highlight to all edges with Golden Yellow.

5. Lightly apply broad highlight over all edges with Snakebite Leather.

6. Lightly paint and dab Snakebite Leather around lower edges for weathered effect.

7. Apply a medium drybrush of Bleached Bone to simulate a worn pathway.

8. Apply a very light dabbing of Bleached Bone to the stairs before highlighting their edges.

9. Lightly drybrush the door with Bleached Bone.

10. To build a garrison, use scissors to cut icypole sticks into spikes approximately 2-2.5cm long and glue to top edge with PVA.
11. Allow to dry.
12. Paint the spikes Bestial Brown.

13. Apply a medium drybrush of Snakebite Leather to the spikes followed by a light drybrush of Bleached Bone concentrated more around the edges.

14. Add additional effects such as rivets and door handle.
