Painting Tutorial „Ruined building“ by Elmar Fischer

Welcome hobbyist to this painting tutorial. Its very straightforward showing simple but effective techniques like drybrushing and the extensive use of weathering with pigment powders.

Step 1: Basic colours

I began painting by applying the basic colours.
The plastered areas received a basecoat of Codex Grey (Vallejo Cold Grey or Neutral Grey).

Followed by a heavy drybrushing with Bleached Bone (Vallejo Bone White or Pale Sand)

Then I carefully painted the brickwork with a Red Gore (Vallejo Gorey Red or Vermillion).

Step 2: Weathering

The final colouring was done with dry pigments. I brought a set with 8 very useful colours from NOCH. For me the use of dry pigments was a way to speed up the painting process comparing to drybrushing and washes. And I think the result is even better and more realistic.

I used the following colours:

Number 5 with a little bit of number 4 for the plastering.

Number 2 and 3 with a little bit of number six for the bricks

Number 4 with a little bit of number 1 for the plastering of the backside

Number 1 and 7 for the weathering and dirt

I don’t use any varnish on my models. I apply the pigments with a brush (synthetic hair). When the dry pigments are rubbed on the surface with the brush the pigments stick very good to the model. Handling the models don’t leave pigments on the fingers or marks on the model. But I don’t handle my models to often.

It’s a good idea to varnish the model if you want to use it for wargaming but then apply more pigments because the varnish will take a bit of the weathering effect.

Step 3: Rubble

Paint the pieces of rubble with Red Gore (Vallejo Gorey Red or Vermillion) for the bricks.

Basecoat all other areas with Adeptus Battlegrey (Vallejo Heavy Grey or Russion Uniform).

Step 4: Rubble

Drybrush the rubble with Bleached Bone (Vallejo Bone White or Pale Sand),

… Fortress Grey (Vallejo Stone Wall Grey or Light Grey),

… Khemri Brown (Vallejo Heavy Brown or US Field Drab).

.

Step 5: Weathering the Rubble

Once again I used the dry pigments to achieve the final colours. The dusty and realistic look can’t be done with other painting technics so straightforward and fast.

Step 6: Rubble

In a last step I added Bleached Bone (Vallejo Bone White or Pale Sand) to the bricks to simulate remaining plaster.

Step 7: The Base

The base was painted using the same colours and painting technics as described for the rubble.

That was the final step. I hope you enjojed reading the tutorial and found it helpful. If you have any questions left send us an email.
