Wasteland ruin - making it lighter so I can go darker

Decided to sponge over the entire thing with Vallejo Air Grey Primer, scrubbing it on so I now have a lighter basecoat. This gives me a better pallet to work with so I can use various washes to change the tone and colour and make it even more patchy.

Left is old, right is new. There is a immense difference, this is under daylight bulbs. If I take it downstairs to the kitchen table (my gaming table for now) the left one looks almost black and the right one a mid tone grey. Since the latter is what I will see the most, and will be for cons etc, I think it is the way to go.

I will however make a scrap piece of foamboard and paint it exactly like this, and use that as a trial plate for the various filters and washes that I have. You know, being sensible :)

  1. Yes, I think that will look better. It is a great looking piece, by the way!

    1. Thx mate, lots moe of these in the future if I want to get a 90x90 table done by November!

  2. Lighter the better- you will rarely play a game with as good
    lighting as your painting desk.
