Wrecked Car from Project Zeke Miniatures

Had a weekend of painting terrain done plenty of work has been done to my LOTR Ruins but they aren't quite ready yet. Got sent a lovely Resin Car Wreck sample from Simon the guy behind Project Zeke miniatures (Click the name for the site) It arrived with some of his P-Sec Security Guards and some very cool Luggage. This probably took me about 40-60 mins over a couple of evenings excluding drying times.

I washed it in warm soapy water first then gave it a black undercoat just to make sure the colours would adhere. Painted all the panel Steel Drab, Dark Tone wash, then dry brushed heavily with a dark grey (I was doing the ruins at the same time). Then I dry brushed the raised areas with Baneblade Brown (a sort of stony light brown) then mixed up some browny orange paint which I stippled over it.




Its turned out surprisingly well I was going to do something similar to some of my diecast cars I have sitting around but I'm going to get me some more of these when they go on sale as they are just so awesomely easy to knock out and they look great.

I'm really pleased with how its turned out its boost my confidence a bit so I'm going on a terrain crusade this year. I have lots of old Warhammer card buildings and some other home made bits which whilst ok doesn't look that great. I'm looking to replace them with some decent buildings. Most likely there will be some pre-painted ruins from 4 Ground on the cards but I've also been looking at Warlord Games Ruined Hamlet For Bolt Action

    1. Thanks mate. Its boosted my confidence with terrain immensely. I've going to pick a few more up as these are easier to do than messing with diecasts.

    Terrain is an important element of our hobby, which can often be overlooked.
