This quick paint and terrain guide aims to show how a few simple techniques and materials can create a really immersive piece of terrain. In fact a small diorama that can be used for gaming or just look nice on the shelf.
We all dry brush and we all colour wash. This is a different take on the same processes. Brush pens are simply pens with a 'soft' brush shaped nib. They come in a mad variety of colours too. Because they are pens they allow you to draw directly on to your buildings. They give an element of control that ink washes sometimes lack. They can be allowed to dry before weathering like a wash. This also means they can be washed off if you change your mind. I use them for both a full weathering as here, or as an under tint before dry brushing over.
