Wood grain painting guide...and pimping another nice blog prize draw...

Our latest posts about our 28mm War of the Roses miniatures
stimulate some wargamers to ask "how can I paint that wood grain effect on
spears, bills and longbows?"
So, this is a short painting guide on how to paint a nice "wood grain"
effect for spears, bows, pikes... ;-)

First of all white primer for your miniatures...

Then paint the spear with burnt umber...


 Irregularly paint with a medium brown...in this case light grey brown...


Again...irregularly paint with a honey colour...


Last step...amber light or yellow ochre...


And now...pimping a nice blog and a prize draw!

for his birthday...and for his 100 followers...
So a great Happy Birthday and remember...read his blog. You' ll enjoy it :-)


And Happy Wargaming to All!

  2. Great work. Thanks. Sort of like painting cammo on clothing? I will use this technique in the near future, Foggy.

    1. Similar but non equal. For cammo on clothing I use some washes too. I' ll have to post a " Foggy painting guide" about this topic... ;-)
