  • The entire model was sprayed with black acrylic paint from a can.
  • Then, to serve as an initial colour for the road grout, I sprayed the roadway with a beige colour.
  • After this the roadway and pavement was dry brushed with Vallejo Model Color “Basalt Grey” (70869) or “London Grey” (70836).
  • The drains and manhole cover were painted with Vallejo Model Color “Black Grey” (70862).
  • To add variation, individual stones on the road and pavement were painted with the LifeColor “Stone Grey” set.
  • The buildings were painted with the LifeColor “Stone Grey”, “Debris and Rubble” and “Dust and Rust” sets.
  • The doors and window frames were painted with Vallejo Panzer Aces “Old Wood” (310), LifeColor “Dark Wooden Stock” (UA729), Vallejo Model Color “Black Grey” (70862) and Citadel “Leadbelcher”.
  • After this the entire model was painted with Humbrol “Clear” gloss varnish, in readiness for the application of oil paints.
