Stone Walls: Paint Everything
I was instantly attracted to these walls when I saw them in my local hobby store and I recall them being very reasonably priced - about AUD24.00 for a set of six double thickness plastic moulded walls measuring 15 cm long X 2.4 cm high. Whilst they could be used for any scale depending upon what you are representing, I think they're most comfortable within the 25-28mm figure scale.
The unpainted images shown here actually do the colour more justice than they deserve, in the flesh being a mid to dark almost blue-grey colour with slight highlighting. In short, they could be used straight out of the box if you believe that all tree trunks are brown, leaves are green and water is blue. I'm clearly not happy with plain grey rocks. Not that I wasn't tempted to ignore the situation - terrain is rarely anyone's strength but I am firmly in the school of thought which dictates that if you have well painted and built armies, they should be used on equivalent terrain. So, paint them I did.
In short, they were washed, dried and undercoated with a Humbrol 72 Khaki Drill. One dried I smeared them randomly Humbrol 94 Brown Yellow with a rough brush. Once dried I flecked them with a washed Humbrol 121 Pale Stone (passing a No. 10 brush over a toothpick) and later inked the recesses with a black wash. Finally I dry brushed with white using a soft No. 16 brush and matt spray coated it in artists lacquer.
