15mm Ground Zero Games - Colonial Shack Set, Rust Revealed!

Hi All,

After yesterday's excitement of getting new minis, I wonted to push on with terrain-side of my project, after all minis need terrain to play on.

I started work on some stone walls (more on them when completed). I also decided to have a go at chipping the paint of my shacks. Before going into that, I guess I should explain about the paints I used (which will be getting scraped off. I used the same five Warcolour's Marine 4, Yellow 4, Green 5, Red 4 & Turquoise 4. Each shack was predominately one colour, with others added here & there for that patchwork look.

I have to admit, I wasn't looking forward to scraping all that lovely paint off. I spend my days painting miniatures & the thought of scraping paint of perfectly good minis made me cringe.

The process is straight forward enough, choose your weapon (tool to remove the paint), I used various brushes, tooth pick & most importantly water. Water activates the chipping medium, so use it sparingly. Use too much & your whole paint layer comes off.

At first I wasn't to sure about the finished result but its growing on me. I still have a lot to do before these shacks are finished though.
