A very nice job on those burrows. I really like the rat minions too. Sadly, I couldn't get any last year since I needed dungeon tiles. Something to look forward to in the future though.

Amazing work... hell, has me considering selling my painted burrows and buying an unpainted set so I can do it myself.

I do agree that providing some additional accent to the roots would make them stand out some more. I am thinking about doing that to a portion of the burrows. I also foresee only using a small subset of the whole encounter most times and using it as a small side location in many situations.

Really nice job (on the minis too). Can you quickly walk us through your painting steps? Thanks!
Sure thing. Hope this is helpful! Note that I use a mix of DF and Reaper paints.

Burrows Floor/Walls:
  • Base Color: DF Base Wood
  • Drybrush 1: 5 parts DF Olive Drybrush + 1 part DF Cavern Drybrush. Drybrush all over.
  • Drybrush 2: 1 part DF Olive Drybrush + 1 part DF Cavern Drybrush. Drybrush all over but emphasizing the upper walls and edges of burrows.
  • Wash: 5 parts Army Painter Soft Tone + 1 part water + 1 part glaze medium (or whatever mix you usually use to soften your washes in a similar proportion). Use in specific areas to create contrast (i.e., not all over), such as puddles next to stones, next to and under tree roots, pick out some of the larger pockets on the ground. I recommend doing this wash AFTER the base color of the tree roots and stones.
Stones
  • Base Color: 3 parts Reaper Shadowed Stone + 1 part Reaper Khaki Shadow
  • Drybrush 1: 1 part Reaper Stone Grey + 1 part Reaper Terran Khaki
  • Drybrush 2: 1 part Reaper Weathered Stone + 1 part Reaper Khaki Highlight
  • Wash: 2 parts Army Painter Soft Tone + 1 part water + 1 part glaze medium. Use more sparingly than usual, more as a way to bring the stones color to mesh better with overall palette.
Tree Roots
  • Base Color: Reaper Driftwood Brown
  • Drybrush: 1 part Reaper Driftwood Brown + 1 part Reaper Linen White
  • Wash: Same as the one above for Stones. Use on tree trunk and closest roots, but leave the ends of roots unwashed.

Concur with previous comments. That wash does look great - will have to try that when I paint mine.
