Large JR Miniatures Factory for Stevograd

Not much to say here! This is the Soviet Munitions Factory Ruins by JR Miniatures that was actually generously donated to Stevograd by our buddy Carl from Miniatures of Chesapeake!



The resin required some clean up, as any mold this size does.  Nothing too terrible or out of the ordinary.  It painted up fairly quickly using drybrushes of dark greys and reds.  All in all, I hate painting terrain, but was happy to get this guy knocked out!

That thing is huge, looks great to boot! Stevograd is shaping up to be a nice, little community.

Looks great! Also looks like somebody invested in BF IS-2s ;)

That a nice piece of terrain. The painting doesn't look wrong either.

I'm looking forward to the eventual city fight. Grenadiers vs. Strelkovy with all the units like the Assault platoon, etc., etc!

@Tyler - They are a ton of fun and with the new V3 building rules it should be much better!

Steve,

Can you give a basic how to on how to paint terrain, or someone here in the community? That would be very informative. I am starting out and would love a few pointers. How do you store them, transport, etc... Whatever you think is important enough to discuss. Thanks for everything you do.

Steve, for someone who hates painting terrain you do a fantastic job. I like the variations in the brickwork and the dingy, dirty feel you bring these ruined buildings. A sprinkle of 152s and IS2s doesn't hurt either. I have been waiting for updates to Stevograd for a while now and I can't wait to see it in action.

Thanks guys!

The basics: Undercoat in spray black. then drybrush the whole thing a dark grey, followed by a medium gray. Then I drybrush the bricks a dark red, followed by a medium red.

After that I go back and drybrush areas with black to look scorched, and finally I drybrush the entire thing with a really light grey or white (this last one is a very light drybrush).


All that's left then is picking out details like rusted equipment (red and brown mixed at about equal parts), wood, etc
