Firstly I found two camp elements from my HYW collection, which were based in a typical retro style and in dire need of revamping. The problem was they were flocked with light-fast static and I'd long baulked at dealing with them or any of the armies I had based with this stuff. But then I thought 'I wonder if I could simply paint over it?'...
Next on to a couple of buildings:
The thatched hut is made from a variety of card and art board, with a scrap of luric green teddy-bear fur for the roof.
The other is the Warbases Grub Hut, made from laser-cut MDF, with added card details including a shingle roof. The roof was painted a dark brown then given a layer of Vallejo Smoke (the first good use I've found for it) which added shade and texture; before being vertically streaked with highlights. Fairly effective.
