Skaven must get bonuses considering the walls are made out of cheese. Sorry if that joke doesn't translate well to Russian.

Seriously, everything looks great. And, your technique is a lot simpler than the standard way of cutting a thousand blocks and then glueing them back together. Is the arch done the same way and just bent?

You're making wonders out of the ordinary foam - it's pleasure to see such skillfully built and incredibly detailed scenery pieces Very Happy !

Thanks for comments)
To SiliconSicilian: no, arch was made of solid detail with stone carving. But really it is no problem to make it of different stones.

I have a question though. I have worked on foam a little (bought a block of it and now its all used up), but when it comes to painting, the foam always melts away! I use the GW citadel spray paint (black) to undercoat, and the stuff always melts.

I know it is the propellant that should be causing this, but no matter how far away I hold the can when spraying (so only paint and no propellant reaches the foam) it just melts away.

I use the standard pink foam, used by many of you guys, so I have no idea what the heck im doing wrong Razz

The chemicals in spray primers will ALWAYS melt unsealed foam.

Just seal the foam by coating it with something. I have used white glue (Elmers in the US), artists gesso, elastomeric roof coating (the best) and a few hundred other products.

Interestingly some of the spray stone or texture coatings do not melt unsealed foam AND seal it.

Yeah, I once used a brown spray,and it didnt make the foam melt. Strange Razz

Anyway, I'll be going with a watered down PVA glue coat then, as that is about the only "sealing" I have got.

Thanks for the tip Smile

Opheliate, i use simple acrylic caoting and do it with big brush. It is cheaper and better for foam terrain than pray coating. Maybe you should try it.

I love cheap acrylic paints. Whenever our local craft store has a flyer I clip the 40% off coupon and get the already cheap acrylic paints at an additional 40% off.

The Big House is exceptional! The detail level is great for just simply cutting out foam! And the fact that is modular as is an added bonus. Well done!

There are some spray paints made for floral pieces that don't harm foam. Since I wind up going back & brushing the hard to reach places anyway, I find that painting piece with a brush doesn't really take that much extra time.

Well, you learn as long as you live Smile

Gay!

No, jokes aside, I just have no idea how to do that. Doesnt airbrushing use specail paints and "straws" instead of brushes??

No, not really. You can pretty much use any paint with an airbrush, the only difference is you can't use it straight from the pot. Ideally paint that is used in the airbrush is about the consistency of milk.
There are different mediums that you can use to thin the paint, but the easiest, and typically prefered is to thin the paint with alcohol. Additionally you wouldn't want to use paint that is lumpy as this can clog your airbrush, some people strain their paints to prevent that. As long as you keep your airbrush clean after each use you should be fine.

Just like using a spray can, to many passes from the airbrush will cause the paint to run, this is typically why most prefer alcohol as the paint atomizes (sp) much better on contact and is easier to work with.

If you are starting out with an airbrush the easiest would be a single action, which runs about $45 ish new. You can pick up a decent compressor for $100 new, or just look around used. I have seen em for 20-35$. But like anything there is a slight learning curve, but understanding how the airbrush works, and how to thin your paints will greatly reduce that curve.

I have an airbrush that I have never used which I am told is very good. However, the air canister that came with it is probably bad, now. Do these expire? Anyway, as soon as I get back into painting, I plan on getting a compressor and doing a lot of trials on buildings as opposed to minis as I can paint over buildings easier and it can just be considered a sealing coat.
