KB Update, Terrain Problems

Not too long ago, I went down to my local Michael's and bought enough paint to continue working on the terrain table. I really didn't want to have to go back, so I made sure to buy plenty of paint.

When I got back, I went to work on the terrain table. The general idea is to drybrush the colors on, to create a layered effect like I have on my bases. Unfortunately, it didn't turn out so well.

It came out a little blotchy for my liking
I'm not sure how I'm going to fix it, but I'm not exactly happy with how it looks right now. At least I have plenty of paint.

On the bright side, I was able to devote some time to my first squad of Knights Bellicose. I like how they're turning out! What do you think?

If you have any ideas for what I should do with my terrain table, feel free to let me know. Either way, keep checking back to see how the Knights Bellicose turn out!


  1. Lightly mist the surface of each area with a bit of water, then use the dry brushing. It's easier to control the amount of water used to help blend, spread, and add depth of colors through layers. (As long as the surface can accept the bit of water.)

    1. I'm definitely going to try this technique. My wife has also suggested that I purchase an airbrush, so I'm going to look into that. I'm planning on doing two other terrain boards after this and it should help me solve my priming issues, so I'm hoping its a good investment.
