The Completed Shanty Town

Well, it's not as nice as I wanted it to be but for a few days work (total), I think it makes a fairly nice board. Mostly, I'm frustrated by the fact that the weathered wood tutorial I found online do NOT work the way the author pictured (which is why much of the wooden pieces appear white-washed, rather than weathered).

I think they look great. The whitewash parts really help tie them together into a shanty town, rather than just a scrap pile of dark junk. If you want to do more to make them weathered, some judicious use of washes will give great easy results. Nice work!

I understand the frustration that you feel, but once you gat away from it for a few days, it might not bother you as much.

I painted up phase one of a shanty town a while back...

I am also not totally happy with how mine turned out, but I hope to add a little more work to the original bits when I do the next batch of shanty elements.

If the "whitewash" still bugs you in a while then maybe you can do it when you add some vehicles or whatever to the set.

Not that it needs it, I would love to play on a table with your terrain :)
