I took a bit longer than expected, but I finally finished the beer cellar wall element. Last time the brick wall was all finished and only the beer barrels needed some paint, so here we go!
I wanted them to look old, so I basecoated them grey-brown and added a couple drops of white to the base colour for the highlights. Once again I used cheap acrylic wall paint. The Hirst Arts barrel have nice, deep wood grain, so they take a drybrush well. On the left you see the highlighted barrel on the right the barrel before the highlight.
Now its time to paint the metal parts. I used Vallejo Model Color 179 Gunmetal Grey for the basecoat, and 177 Oily Steel as well as 171 Silver for the highlights. I mix Gunmetal and the Oily steel about 50:50 for the first highlight and then add more and more drops of silver for all successive highlights. All there is to do now is to fix the barrels to the wall segment. I used some UHU all purpose adhesive and it holds very well.
Naturally you can also add some moss at that stage. If you are interested in the moss technique, check out the second part of the Crypt of the Damned tutorial. To get an idea how the walls and tiles pictured are made check out this short tutorial.
All done and time to present the final wall segment with some other Hirst Arts bits.
