PiP (40K); Ork Shanty town

finally got round to painting the Ork shanty town.

- Undercoat Rat brown, aka red brown.
- followed by a fine spray of silver. Well army painter sprays tends to spray in blobs so you get fine spray followed by the occasional blob of paint. The silver over brown gives a nice rusted metal effect.
-Next some of the panels were painted with water down blue (GW ultramarine blue) or green ( Vallejo Russian uniforms). The water down paints allow the rusted brown to show through plus if you use water without a thinner the paint tends to clump into blobs. The mixed colors adds to the shanty look.
-Next the some the wooden doors and planking was painted brown (PP bestial brown).
- Finally the window mesh was painted black (GW chaos black) followed by a dry brush of metal (Vallejo gun metal). and the chimney stacks were painted dull metal (GW tin bitz)
