IT. IS. DONE. All of the Kill Team Octarius terrain, fully painted!

There we go, all finished. Absolutely stoked with how they came out, and I'm really glad I got some of the big tufts as well, it looks so much more natural. (Plague Marines and Poxwalkers for scale.)

I decided to do some basing on my #KillTeam oil rig terrain piece, pretty happy with how it's come out!

Two more pieces of the #KillTeam Octarius terrain nearly done! I just need to wait a few days for the wash to dry, then drybrushing and varnishing, and then only two more identical pieces to these and I will be FINISHED!

I wish I'd gotten onto this airbrushing thing earlier. It's SO much faster to paint terrain, I'm actually going to finish all of the Kill Team stuff from Octarius! These aren't finished yet, but there's two more identical pieces to go, then it'll just need a splash of colour, a coat of quickshade and then some drybrushing, and it'll be 100% done. And then I might even try to make a dent in the Sector Mechanicus terrain from my old Kill Team starter box from 2019 that I've assembled and undercoated and then done absolutely nothing else with. 😮

I decided that I should really bite the bullet and actually get started on the large pieces of the Kill Team terrain from the Octarius box that I bought in the middle of 2021. Figured it'd be a good opportunity to actually try doing some airbrushing in a fashion other than a zenithal highlight base coat, and I'm pretty pleased with how it's coming out! I'm less worried about obviously sticking within the lines because a) it's terrain and I don't care nearly as much, and b) in this case it's Ork terrain which is completely ramshackle anyway. It's weirdly shiny because I'm using Army Painter's "Strong Tone" shade paint, which is sort of like Citadel's washes but oil-based and far thicker, and for some reason they thought a glossy finish would be the go. Once it's dry (which takes a good 24-48 hours 😮) I'm going to give it a drybrushing with some gunmetal silver and then will hit it with a matte varnish to get rid of the shine, and I reckon it's going to look pretty tops.

Remember the absurd amount of terrain I put together from the Kill Team: Into The Dark box? FINALLY got it finished today! I realised I was massively overthinking it and that I didn't actually need to do remotely as much detail as I thought. I primed in black, did a low airbrushed zenithal highlight of this wonderful dark blue metallic colour, then a higher one of copper, airbrushed white for the lights, then picked out a few details in red, and it looks fantastic on the tabletop.

I decided to mix it up a bit and today completed one of the huge pieces of terrain that I got in the old Kill Team box back in 2019 (https://virtualwolf.org/media/posts/1097). Pretty pleased with how it came out, given I only started it last night! I think the trick is to ignore all the crazy fine detail and just do broad colours, and just pick out a few key details at the end.

That's the barricades done, and with that, all the small bits of the terrain! Next stop, the full size pieces.

Got the scrap walls finished too! I tried doing some lighting effects with the globes, with varying degrees of success. This was a little bit more work than the last terrain bits, but not by too much, and it was mostly mucking around trying to get the globes looking decent.
