15mm Ruined shop with passage

Having undercoated the Total Battle Miniatures 15mm ruined shop with passage I then added a base coat to cover the rubble and the broken parts of the walls.

I will then paint some of the detail before giving the model a wash using a brown wash.

I intend to add more debris, using wood and plasticard, as well as some printed signs and posters.

Adding detail, to the 15mm Ruined Houses

I have the ruined row of three houses and the ruined row of four houses, from Total Battle Miniatures. Having previously posted about the ruined row of three houses, here is the ruined row of four houses.

Still some work to do on the stonework and half-timbered building.

Adding the detail, to the 15mm Ruined Houses

I have the ruined row of three houses and the ruined row of four houses, from Total Battle Miniatures.

Having given most of the model a basecoat, I am now painting in the details of the ruins, using Citadel Scorched Brown.

Once I have finished painted the ruins, I think I will add some additional detrius, broken beams and so on to add a little more detail.

Painting the 15mm Ruined Houses

I have the ruined row of three houses and the ruined row of four houses, from Total Battle Miniatures. Having cleaned the models, I gave the inside of the models a black undercoat and then masked the inside of the windows (with masking tape) before I give the model a white undercoat on the outer side of the model.

I then started on the basecoat of one of the houses that forms part of the building, for the brown I used a Tamiya acrylic. I intend to use a lighter brown for the remainder of the model.

I used a thinned coat of paint, as I will be adding a drybrush and some washes.

I then started on the basecoat of the various parts of the building, for the brown I used a Tamiya acrylic.

15mm Ruined Café

I already have two of the ruined buildings from the Total Battle Miniatures range of Western Europe 15mm buildings. I was lucky enough to get two more for my birthday from Simon, thank you. He gave me the ruined cafe and ruined shop with passage. This photograph is from the manufacturer.

The ruined cafe is a really nice building and comes complete with some “pavement” out the front that would have been used with tables and chairs.

It’s a nice casting with clean detail and looks very effective.

I will probably use a similar method to the one I used with the other ruins. After washing the resin I will give the model a white undercoat and then use a combination of washing and drybrushing to bring out the detail.

The ruined shop with passage is a nice model, though because it is ruined, you wouldn’t realise that there was a passage.

This is the photograph from the manufacturer.

And here is the unruined version.

The first stage after washing the resin will be to remove the mould lubricant and then clean the flash from the casting, especially the windows and the doors.

The ruined shop with passage is a nice model, though because it is ruined, you wouldn’t realise that there was a passage. This is the photograph from the manufacturer.

The reason of course is that Total Battle Miniatures range has both the complete building as well as the ruined building in their range.

The model comes with a separate piece of floor, not sure if I will use it, or build a ruined floor using some scrap wood.

I now have four ruins, but I think I would like to get some non-ruined buildings to complement the ruins. From photographs of Normandy in 1944, you can see in some villages and towns, whilst some houses were ruined, alongside were others that didn’t even look damaged.
