Keeping with my religiously themed terrain project, this week I introduce my take on the Temple of Skulls.
I did a slightly different take on the colors that were given on the kit's box. I think the GW treatment made it look too bright, like a McDonald's Playland that fell to Chaos. Not that my take is "all that" but I liked the more muted and mysterious colors. I was going for the look of something forgotten and left to the ravages of the elements.
As a side note, I only used Americana paints on this model. In fact, I use Americana paints on all my terrain. I really like these paints, and find them fairly comparable in working qualities to the "serious" paints. They do take a few coats for even coverage, though. But they come in giant bottles and the paint doesn't dry out. I'm still using paints I bought back in 2003! So overall they're still a great value.
I also completed some craters from GW's Moonscape pack.
Next up is the Arcane Ruins set, which should go fast. I also ordered a couple of boxes of GW's trees. Then after that I think I'll take a break from terrain to get back to my minis.
