The next stage in progressing this small farmstead is the painting of the building. Where the small cabin was going to be whitish, this one will have the lived in look of untreated wood, so it has a burnt umber base for the whole piece including the roof sections. Then a couple of progressively light dry crushed from Foundry Arctic Grey shade and mid tone. The base is textured with Basetex Dried Earth, which I use for all my ACW bases and static grass Nd clump vegetation are added to taste along with a few scenic bits I had lying around, as you do. The finished farmstead ~
Finally, a couple of pictures of the finished piece in situ in GHQ with part of my War of 1812-15 collection ~
Making these two buildings made a refreshing change from plodding on with figures, so much so that I'm well on with another ACW unit, the 39th New York Volunteers, otherwise the Garibaldi Guards.
