Wild West Building - Undertaker
Ah, so summer is slowly encroaching and my updates are becoming far and wide between. Fortunately I do have a lot of in-progress posts that require a bit of attention but I should get them out over the next few weeks.
Anyway, something completely different, this is an Aetherworks building that I painted after being inspired by the ones that Rob Jedi is painting up for his town. My one is the single storey building (with the hitching post on the left-hand side). It's been decorated with the appropriate door and window frames and I added a graveyard set to the front to make an Undertaker building. The sign is also an Aetherworks sign designed to go with the buildings but they don't seem to have that up on the store yet.
The coffins were painted grey and drybrushed with white. Finally, the sign was painted with Palmer Soldier Blue, and the writing and edge picked out with Foundry Drab highlight, then highlighted with white.
Here is the palatte I used, it's not that many colours. The best thing is, you can use cheap paints and still get some good results. Having an airbrush really helps though for getting the basic colours down - I might try one by hand one day, but if you were painting a whole town, then investing in an airbrush or a spray gun is well worth it.
Victoria's collection that are clearly too short for the building (I don't actually own much Cowboy miniatures).
