Ancestral Ruins Tutorial

Step 1: For these bases, I want to represent an elves temple with a natural and magic atmosphere. I prime it with White Games Workshop prime spray. Table Top Art bases are very fine, thus I apply two fine layers (wait 10 minutes between each layer) to avoid losing details and texture.

Step 2: Stones are painted withpure 898Dark Sea BlueVallejo Color.

Step 3: Then, they are heavily drybrushed with pure Dawnstone (or Codex Grey)Games Workshop.

Step 4: I drybrush lightly stones withFenrisian Grey (or Space Wolf Grey)Games Workshop.

Step 5: If you want, you can add more blue in the deepest shadows with a very diluted and localized Dark Sea Bluewash.

Step 6: I finally make a last very light drybrush with Scar White (or Skull White) Games Workshopto finish the stones.

Step 7: Ground is based with Steel Legion Drab (or Graveyard Earth) Games Workshop.

Step 8: The whole ground is given an Abaddon Black Games Workshop wash.

Step 9: It is then drybrushed with Steel Legion Drab Games Workshop.

Step 10: For the last highlight, I use UshabtiBone (or Bleached Bone) Games Workshop.

Step 11: Roots and leaves are given a base coat ofAbaddon Black Games Workshop.

Step 12: They are then highlighted withCastellan Green (or Catachan Green) Games Workshop…

Step 13: … and with Elysian Green (Camo Green) Games Workshop.

Step 14: The last highlight is made with a 50/50 mix of Elysian Green Games Workshop and Light Yellow 70949 Vallejo Color.

Step 15: To finish, the rim of bases is painted with AbaddonBlack. 

Step 15 bis: Here is the final result :) I hope you will love it !
