"House F" - TUTORIAL

Are your parents pissing you off?You want to move out but have no place to go?Or maybe you need some cover for sniper in Bolt Action game?Build yourself a house then!A while back we got some terrain pieces for Bolt Action game - one of them was "House F" from Black Grom Studio. That 2-floor building turned out so useful during our fighting manoeuvres, that we got even more Black Grom stuff shortly after.Not mentioning the fact it looks just supercool on the battlefield...While working on the previous one I learnt some stuff, which might be useful for anyone who'd like to get decent looking terrain pieces quite fast and with least effort possible.You kids ready? Let's start!This is how the stuff looks like straight from the box.Just like before: customer service and delivery was just top notch! Although I got some more buildings but for the start I decided to build additional "House F". It's simply large enough to provide a cover for any vehicle in Bolt Action game.Not mentioning the fact you can hide 2 s

More Bolt Action terrain

Heyah,Looks like once again instead of proper miniatures the bloggy has been stuffed with terrain pieces dedicated to Bolt Action game. This time it's a warehouse from Black Grom Studio and ruined hamlet set from Warlord Games. As for the warehouse I got it together with a "House F" and brickworks. Not much to say about the quality - all parts fit well, model is easy to assemble and makes great cover for those goddamn Fallshirmjager...Definitely recommended - and not only for German Army players.Basic idea was to cover it with bricks, just like the buildings mentioned above, but since the model was assembled before I got wall texture it was simply painted and weathered with dry pigments and oil wash. What's new on this one, is the glass. There's no glass in the windows of the previous buildings - officially I say it's because heavy shelling arround: shockwave was so strong it made those poor soilders deaf and glass break. Nice, eh?Sad truth is there was no glass added because I wanted to s

Brickworks (terrain piece)

Hello,January belongs to terrain building, no doubts about it.Just about 2 weeks ago I finished lasercut house for Bolt Action and now added another set, once again from Black Grom Studio: Brickworks.Must say I've never felt any fondness for lasecut terrain pieces, always liked building stuff myself - from the scratch. But since we got some buildings for Bolt Action must admit I changed my mind a bit.I am busy. Really, have not much time for hobby so if I want to work on minis it usually takes place late night. Preparing terrain "oldschool way" was fun but also rather time consuming so using lasercut models is just time saver. BIG time saver...As for these below models were assembled and instead of airbrushing walls (which was initial idea) I printed brick textures (available free on Black Grom blog), cut to fit and attached with diluted PVA glue. After glue dried buildings were washed with heavily diluted pigment+was mixture, sprinkled with some powdered chalk and then sprayed with heavu layer of m

Bolt Action "House F"

Hello again,Didn't actually think I'd have anything to show just after the Killroy post but last Saturday I've finished working on Black Grom Studio's terrain piece: "House F".There are lots of lasercut terrain pieces available, we for this one plus brick factory and warehouse to upgrade the battlefield. As for the products they are definitely worthy recommending:easy to assemble, all parts fit well not mentioning customer service is top notch.As for finishing the model initially I wanted to give the walls some texture and paint it using airbrush and add cardboard roof tiles - sth like here (that building is for sale if anyone's interested). But then I found wall / roof ready to print textures, also on Black Grom's site and decided to give it a try.Long story short: adjusting textures onto alrady assembled building was just fucking pain in the ass but the result was worth it, Really looking worward to see the other buildings done similar way. Hope you like it.
