Like charred stone? That's interesting.

KS3 had a tudor ruins set that was burned out, but that's a different material type. ... nd-painted

Most of what I can see on Google Images isn't I think what you are looking for; most I see has the dark, charred parts as the top layer of the stone and the recesses are lighter. So I guess I would suggest painting it normally and then doing some black and dark gray drybrushes as soot stains.

Painting ruins

Post by Alphyns » Thu Jul 13, 2017 3:11 pm

I've got the ruins set from KS3 and an upcoming session where they would be great to have on the table. They are made from the really dark dwarvenite. I'm thinking there ought to be a way to take advantage of that when painting these as having been burned out.

So, has anyone painted these up to look burned? Any tricks you'd suggest I try? Inspiring pics you want to share? Thanks everyone.
