Today I present you a couple of broken pillars from the Dominion of Sigmar: Timeworn Ruins set I painted to compliment my Warcry scenery collection. I chose a muted jade green that matches the pale green tiles on the grey Warcry game board as close as possible. Check out more pictures and a complete list of the paints and techniques I used.

I wanted to keep my Warcry terrain collection less chaos-y and more like a generic human settlement, so I did away with the palisades and barricades that came with the Warcry starter set and painted these Timeworn Ruin pieces instead. I designed the paint scheme to be as close as possible to the green tiles printed on the board, and also painted the bases grey to blend in. You can easily adapt this technique to all sorts of terrain pieces, Azyrite Ruins and the like…
