Scenery: Walls and Fences

The Box
Gamesworkshop sells numerous pieces of scenery. For those games who have money to spare and don't want to fiddle about trying to construct scenery of their own it offers great value for money and easy good looking terrain pieces.

One of those things that most fantasy players will have in their collection of scenery bits and bobs is the box set "Walls and Fences". It comes at a low prices and gives you 4 long walls and 5 short walls of wood and stone. (well plastic really) They also did throw in 2 posts.

Now, with very little effort and hardly any real painting skills anyone can make something good of this that will look fantastic on your gaming table. If you follow these easy steps your walls and fences will look something like mine here on the left.

Stone:
- cut from sprue and remove all moldlines.
- undercoat with black.
- heavy drybrush dark grey. (codex grey)
- drybrush light grey. (fortress grey)
- light drybrush white. (skull white)
- irregular thinned down wash lightbrown. (devlan mud)
- irregular thinned down wash black.(baddab black)
- flock with static grass and moss.

Wood:
- cut from sprue and remove all moldlines.
- undercoat with brown.
- heavy drybrush dark grey. (codex grey)
- light drybrush light brown.(graveyard earth)
- irregular thinned down wash lightbrown. (devlan mud)
- flock with static grass and moss.

After that you paint in some details like rusty chains and rings and the goglin....yeah it's there! have a closer look. I give 1 internet cookie to the first person to point it out.
All in all it took me about an hour to paint it all up after the undercoat was dry and another half hour to put all the different bits of grass and moss on. I'm very pleased with the result and it look good on the gaming table.

Mission accomplished!
