Hi All,

Here's a few pics of some scene-setters finished up 10mm Pendraken tents with custom-made shields (big battle conference happenin' inside I suspect).

Fun stuff to dress an up-coming HYW battle board, which will use 15mm figs besides these camps, and 10mm buildings throughout.

I can't remember who made the peak tents think they were ACW accessories.

What was the method you used to paint the off-white tents? They look really nice!

Thank you Perris!

I started with an off-white paint color, but then used dry pigments to lightly-brush on the suggestion of the canvas 'pleating/sagging' (w/brown pigment). There's a bit of shadowing added too with black pigment along the tie-backs, and a little along the base of each tent, and for the interior cavity. The dry pigments were then locked-in with an overspray of clear flat.

Everything was dry-brushed with white to pop the peaks and pleats.

Dry pigments can have an almost air-brush effect (feathering), but you're applying lines, and swirling patches with your various brushing techniques. If you don't like what you've achieved wash it off under the faucet, dry the piece off, and try over till you do (before you'll spray with clear flat to seal the deal).

Btw, I use dry pigments to apply camo patterns onto WW2 and modern armor even on 3mm minis……and never need to clean an airbrush again. ;)

Thanks for sharing! I will definitely give it a try.

Thanks for asking.

If my pics turn out, I have the first game with this new kit to post on the forum in a week or so.

I like your idea of using a smaller scale for buildings. It makes the table look better.

Thanks Legionarius!

I'm definitely trying to tease towards a battle-scape look, on the overall 6X4 ft. mat.

We played 2 games of Medieval Masters today, and the guys had a good time with it (me too).
