Paint Table Saturday #34

I haven't done this for a couple of weeks. I think this is #34.



I still haven't quite finished the "Named Gangsters". There isn't much left though - just touch ups, a little bit of detailing and varnishing. I will get that done tomorrow.



Earlier this week I reported that the Eureka jazz band are primed. A couple of nights ago I did the flesh basecoat (German Camo Black Brown) on their hands and faces. A couple of the figures have open mouths, so I carefully did those with Panzer Aces Shadows Flesh.




I've been steadily working on the warehouse and corner store this week, mostly doing the interiors. This afternoon I have done the exterior brickwork using FW red earth ink (diluted 50% with 10% flow aid). I will need to touch up some of the window frames where the red ink caught the white.

Corner Store:




Warehouse:







Tomorrow I'll only do a little bit more on these - spraying the roof wells with textured grey paint. I might do the pavement areas as well. I'll also be making a proper start on the jazz band. That is assuming that I've actually managed to decide on the colour scheme for the band's uniform!

  2. Great work on those buildings, Tamsin - but how much room will a 28mm replica of Chicago actually take up?
    : )

  3. The brick colour looks real good. Loving this project. Makes me feel like painting Gangsters

  4. The ink colors on the buildings look great though I do find the 2nd story of the corner store disconcerting. Your gangland project is so impressive in size and scope I believe others will be sucked into Prohibition gaming because of it.

  7. Thanks all!

    @ Joe - check out the next post :)

    @ Evan - probably about a furlong by a furlong. I don't have space for that though and don't need more buildings than will fill a 6' x 4' table

    @ Robert - it is a bit awkward, isn't it? As for sucking others in, I don't mind getting the blame for that ;)
