1. Red-tinted Space Hulk walls

Here is how I painted the red walls of my Gallowdark terrain. It’s super fast and doesn’t require an airbrush as you can just use red spray paint.

2. Yellow ammo crates

Inspired by the hazard stripes on the Gallowfall and Soulshackle boards I decided to paint the ammo crates in a rich yellow.

3. Corroded Gallowdark steel doors

For the steel parts I wanted to have a lot of rust. I started by spraying the doors silver and then washed selected recesses with multiple coats of thinned paint to build up a rich rust colour.
