Colour Scheme for my Hirst Arts stuff

I've been asked if I could provide the colour schemes used for the Tower I posted about last night.

I've used two colour schemes for my Hirst Arts models so far. I'll call them "Dungeon" and "Surface".

The "Dungeon" colours were an attempt to match in with the Master Maze colour scheme. The "Surface" I wanted to be more of a lighter ruined look.

Both start with a black undercoat. This is a thorough spray of Army Painter Black and then touch-up with Black Acrylic. I've been using two types of Acrylic, Vallejo Model Colour and also some cheap large bottles of Crafter's Acrylic, which is available from Hobbycraft in the UK, as well as other places.

After that it's basically a load of dry-brushing with a really big brush!

Dungeon

  1. undercoat/prime Black (Army Painter/Crafter's Acrylic)
  2. dry brush with Slate (Crafter's Acrylic)
  3. paint a few stones with Khaki Grey (Vallejo Model Colour)
  4. dry brush with a random mix of Black Grey. Brown Violet & Stone Grey (All Vallejo Model Colour)
  5. dry brush with Stone Grey (Vallejo Model Colour)

Surface

  1. undercoat/prime Black (Army Painter/Crafter's Acrylic)
  2. dry brush with Slate (Crafter's Acrylic)
  3. dry brush with Stone Grey (Vallejo Model Colour)
  4. dry brush with Light Brown (Vallejo Model Colour)
  5. dry brush with Light Grey (Vallejo Model Colour)
  6. dry brush with a mix of Slate/White (Crafter's Acrylic)  slightly lighter than the Light Grey
  7. dry brush with White (Crafter's Acrylic)
  8. Add streaks of Brown Violet (Vallejo Model Colour)
On the Surface models I've also glued some Decor Plus Leaf Litter and some Woodland Scenics Fine Turf Green Grass for the ivy. I did look at more realistic ivy but decided the price was too high. Both were glued on with the same PVA I used to build the models.
