Though I have used my Sarissa Precision Old West 25mm Buildings in game of Legends of the Old West, I think they could do with some extra work to add more detail. I would certainly like to add some weathering, but I would also like the paint the roof tiles on the shack.
What I am not sure about is how to paint the tiles and not paint out the etching that defines the tiles. What sort of process and paints should I be using? Should I use inks or a wash? Will thinned paint cover the etching? Should I paint each tile individually?
What process are you using to paint your laser etched buildings?
I had also taken the time to repaint my desert scenery tiles from the Martian red they were (due to using too much Red Primer spray paint) to a brown green theme. I however hadn’t got round to drybrushing them or adding tufts of grass in time for the game.
I have really liked the idea of the laser-etched mdf buildings I have seen online for a while now, so was really pleased when Simon got me a couple of the Sarissa Precision Old West 25mm Buildings for my birthday.
I got the shack and a small building.
They went together really easily. I added a shop sign to the small building.
Here is a PDF of the store sign (and some others) which you are free to download and print for your own Old West buildings.
I hope to get some more to build a complete Old West town.
