Modular River Terrain Test Continued
It's been a busy morning but I've now started painting the two prototype sections of modular river tiles, following the tried and tested method that I've used on the desert terrain. I'm now waiting for the GW Agrax Earthshade wash to dry completely, before I can add a light dry brush to the river banks. I'm hoping to get at least a basecoat on the river itself by the end of the day, although I'm unsure if I will paint it in shades of reflective blue or a muddy brown?
I've also ordered a rather cool plank and post bridge to go over the river from Supreme Littleness Designs. This has a nice western look to it, despite being designed for Napoleonics, Seven years War, Malburians et al, so I think it will fit in very well. I'm sure there's a scenario or two that I can devise featuring a bridge, no doubt involving some blowing up with dynamite! When it arrives, I'll work out the best way to base it and paint it, so that it fits in with the rest of the river sections.
