First Building of Steve-O-Grad!

The Adult Snacks Factory?

Lo! The first building for Steve-o-grad is done! It's a JR miniatures piece and was incredibly easy to prep and paint. 2 hours total, tops. I'm happy with the result, and I HATE painting terrain.






blech- that yellow doesn't match.

That looks really good -- what colour did you use for the rusty metal.

I have several buildings I should paint but for some reason I find them rather intimidating

Thanks Duncan! The rust was roughly a mix of 45% Americana True Red, 45% Americana Milk Chocolate, and 10% gunmetal grey.

For terrain I use the cheap hobby paints from Michael's. I'll do a tutorial for the next building I do, but this went very quickly!

Fantastic.

I have a bunch of these buildings, and i've been afraid to paint them. Not to many good ref pics.

but this one is great.

I would love to see a tutorial as well.
this is how I'm going to get my wife into the hobby. she has expressed interest in the terrain and buildings.

Looks great. Now you need to paint some russian infantry so they can try to recapture those tanks ;)

I have the same model, but it appears JR changed it over the years! I bought mine in '05 when I fist got into FoW and they had a ruined t-34 (or some such tracked refridgerator) on one corner.

You did this justice, looks awesome!

Well done it looks great! I am sure a tutorial on the next building would be appreciated by all if you find the time.

Seconded, or perhaps thirded! Looks Great. So it is JR Miniatures? I wasn't a big fan of some of their Russian peasant villages I had picked up-- I was later told their earlier sculpts weren't the best but their newer sculpts are great.

I'm a big fan of the Miniature Building Authority stuff.

Really like the finished product. Not much of a time investment for the quality results.
-Cheers!

Awesome job! I have a storage bin full of these JR Miniatures Stalingrad pieces still in their bags that I picked up at a Recon or Hurricon several years ago - you may just have inspired me to bust them out and get some paint on them :)

Yes, I'll just echo that a tutorial would be great too...

Beccas said...

Very nice. You sure you don't like painting terrain?

Kevin said...
