First up is the Warlord Ruined Farmhouse set, which I did as two different buildings for flexibility. Its a really nice plastic model with really lovely detail including the remnants of a second floor. I also added a few extra beams to the roof along the way.
The second, smaller building was originally intended to be brighter with coloured, plastered walls. Unfortunately that turned out rather horribly. So instead I scrubbed the majority of that off, back to the black undercoat but was careful to leave some still there when I bust up the grey dry brushing effect and added some smoke effects. I like the realistic splashes of colour it leaves, which are vivid on the table, and which suggest the houses's former condition.
I also completed the ruined walls and debris set that I picked up at MOAB last month - painted in a month, a new record!

Luckily, it has been the Oktoberfest season. This gave me a +1 sauerkraut re-roll, which I passed easily to push on!
