It's a new year and I'm kicking it off by getting things going on my Realm of Battle Gameboard. In this stage I first sprayed the rocky areas and skull pits using Chaos Black spray primer. Using the brown paint and the two inch brush from the GW Scenery Painting Pack I then painted all of the flat areas and stippled the paint around the rocky outcrops and skull pits. This stippling effect will help in adding depth around the rocks and pits so it's not just a straight border of colour. In this stage it's very important that I get a healthy amount of paint onto the gameboard as there's a good deal of detail that needs covered, plus a good base coat will help to hide any of the grey plastic that might try to sneak through thin areas of paint. In the next stage I'll be completing the rocks and skull pits so keep an eye out for Stage Two.
