TOPIC: Thinking of a green color scheme

Thinking of a green color scheme 1 Year, 2 Months ago  
Most of my game tiles from the Kickstarter I've painted up for a normal dungeon scheme, but I set back some to do some specialized color schemes for rooms/halls.

One set I'm going to do in a golden scheme, and the other I'm thinking of a green scheme. I kind of want to evoke the feeling that the Minas Morgul shot from LOTR has.



I've also been thinking about something similar to the Chamber of Sorrows in green.

To get the Minas Morgul effect I've been thinking about brushing proceedingly lighter greens upward.

For the Chamber of Sorrows effect I've been thinking of using a lime/mid-green then finishing with a green ink wash.

Any suggestions or thoughts from more experienced painters?

personally I would get the color you want in liquid form at a 1:7 ratio of water to paint and coat it a couple of times. Drybrush a lighter green/white and give it another wash.

Thanks. That sounds a lot easier.

For the floors I was thinking of a fluorescent lime with a thin green ink wash. I think that combo would look pretty good.

From what I can see of the Chamber of Sorrows it looks like it was painted red then dry-brushed heavily with black, and I might try the same approach.

If you use actual flourescent paint, it will really pop if you have a blacklight on at the table.

Hmmm... brushing with a whitish-yellow phosphorescent might work for the middle stage.

Please post pics when you finish. This is the kinda stuff I imagined if I were to get unpainted sets. I decided not to though, as I don't think I have the patience for painting.

Besides this color-scheme, I'd love to see someone attempt an ice color scheme!

The best advice I could give you would be to first start with a WHITE primer (with a spray bottle). If you want clear and vivid colors to pop up as in the LOTR image you posted, you HAVE to do that! Otherwise, the "dungeon grey" color incorporated in the PVC/Dwarvenite will show through any light color you paint on top. Here`s an example driven from my experience (link). I know this advice goes against Stefan`s advice not to prime Game Tiles, but Stefan`s advice applies only in my opinion to people wishing the dungeon grey to show through.

Unless you got some potent glow going, I doubt the level of light it takes phosphorescent to look good will be enough to game by. Sure might look nice for pictures, but without GID dice, LED lit figures and everyone using backlit screens for rules and stat sheets, it sounds Awesome, but impractical.
