Not many basements here in the UK, building regulations made them almost impossible to implement.
Older buildings sometimes have them, but nothing post war.
Rabbit, really? That's peculiar. Why on earth did some bureaucrat decide basements are dangerous (around here they are de rigeur - we live in America's 'Tornado Alley').

TLW
My guess and mind you this is just a guess, is that too many buildings that are not there any more that had basements during the war caved in or caused their neighbors homes to cave in during even light bombing killing a greater amount of people.

Just like many old USA laws that made some sense at the time, but are just stupid now.

That actually looks pretty decent to me, at least in the photos. Drybrushing is hard, especially when getting started. I find by the third or fourth tile in a batch, I have the brush working right and the paint just right and get pretty consistent results. Way too often on that first pass I have too much paint on the brush or sometimes not enough to do anything.
Story of my life...

always 10 strokes after the paper towel it is perfect and then suddenly it is not doing anything and you have to go back to the paint... i can never manage to get the right amount off before i touch the piece... which is ok with terrain where you have a lot of area to hide your mistakes but REALLY aggravating with miniatures whenyou pretty much need to be perfect the first stroke

I feel like it would take the rest of my life to learn to paint like you guys. The DH looks amazing.

I found that the Sludge color was a good match for the Factory color scheme for the Brambles, after trying a number of other combos and blends.

The first tree is similar to hoe I painted mine. The second is a lot lighter. They both look good to me.

Thanks. For the second tree I used a smaller brush, and lighter touch (!) methinks it’s looking better.

I will most likely do a fall scheme too, but waiting on that until I get a handle on all these green leaves...

Also did a start on the brambles.

My current effort on canopies is to create a fall style with various browns and reds and oranges and maybe some yellow as well. Since I have no baseline to work against, this process is more of a slow one.

Back on topic.....
sorry, i already screwed that up

NICE highlighting - the canopies look very real with the amount of depth you have painted in
thanks... :)
