Base Paint for My Mordheim Building

Collapsed Tower,Mordheim Buildings
Author: Ashton Sanders

I have successfully painted my entire collapsed Mordheim black! I couldn’t use spray paint because most of it is built with styrofoam, so I grabbed my largest brush, and watered down a lot of black paint, and got started. Here’s some pictures of my freshly painted black undercoat:

And here is a picture of it now that it has dried. (I’ve also spent about an hour doing touch ups and getting black paint deep into the crevices.

For this Mordheim building, I am planning on letting a lot of the black paint show through on the final product, so I definitely had to make sure every millimeter of this piece of terrain was base painted.

    I imagine a low-power air brush would work pretty well, wouldn’t it? Something that just “flung” the paint at the foam?

    This looks great, Ash!

    @Admin Tom: Thanks!

    @TRoss: That’s a good idea. I never thought about an air brush. I’ll look into it. The only possible problem (and the reason I can’t use spray paint) is if the paint mixture reacts with Styrofoam and destroys your terrain =). I’ll check into it. Thanks.
