GT brick painting scheme 12 Months ago  
Hello,

A little time ago, I was thinking about creating brick tiles that can be used both in medieval and modern environments. And then, when I saw the Kickstarter, I immediately saw how I can use it.

My point of view is that the resin terrain is the best for the stone dungeons. The GT are really nice to create new environments. I think that it is not a good idea the exchange those two products because the uses, the goals, even the sculpture are not the same.

So, here is a little painting test for brick walls. I'm not quite decided for the paint scheme of the floor (left or right) but I think that the brick painting is quite nice. What do you think about it?

That looks awesome!

I immediately started thinking about Heroclix - a whole city block made out of these, with Spiderman fighting Batman on the sidewalks!

It won't be perfect, of course -- there are no modern doors or windows, no streets, and no other details (furnishings, sewer grates, street signs, etc.) But it does look awesome and you're at least 50% of the way there with basic walls and floors. You could make an AWESOME alley!

What do you say, Stefan? How about a modern GT add-on with contemporary doors, windows, and maybe things like a desk, a garbage can, a "Don't Walk" sign, a newspaper vending machine thing? We don't even need streets, really -- just place this stuff on a black surface and the raised white sidewalk becomes a curb.

The mind reels at the possibilities...

What a great idea! I was trying to think of a way to use these with mars attacks but this would fit in perfectly!

Excellent idea and great job! I think this is the real strong point of the unpainted sets. We can paint them to not just be traditional DF dungeon colors. (Although the Pokorny paints really make it so easy to do!) I am playing around with some different color ideas inspired by ROTA and a couple of the PSOM sets.
It's going to be interesting in the weeks ahead to see what new paint schemes emerge.

I would love to see more.

Brilliance. Do you have to choose between the floor paint schemes on the left or right? One is clearly a cement sidewalk, and the other is asphalt. There's utility in having both, with the cement typically adjacent to the brick, just as you have it.

The only thing I'm not liking so much is the selection of reds for the bricks - too many pinks, not enough orange hues, and too much variance in saturation.

super cool idea - i don't play in any modern settings, but i still love it

i prefer the sidewalk color (left) but i tend to agree with Null, i would go darker on the bricks and maybe a gray or black wash or very light drybrush to make it seem like a gritty dirty city

it is fun to watch all the cool things being done - thanks for sharing

You just got it, Law !! You've seen the potential of those tiles adapted for a modern environment. In fact the sculpt of the GT is too different to be compatible with the resin stone line. It is quite difficult to mix the two products. So for me, using the GT in modern setups is an evidence.

For the accessories, there is the old 'heroclix adventure kit'.





As nowadays, windows are quite big, I though to print some transparent sheets. Same for the doors. And I will probably make some custom for the missing stuffs. And we can also mix it with the wooden floors of the MBS.


And for the brick color, in fact the picture is far more contrasted than in reality and also more brighter.

great Painting and very imaginative...a also think a little on the pink side for me, but maybe that would look interesting when seeing lots of them together....man, that is going to take a long time to paint...

I really dig this..but I would personally never use it. I just don't play anything modern.

For what you are doing with it, though? I think it looks awesome.

Home run for Rodenbach!

I like the final much better than the test piece, a little darker and redder and it really looks believable

Nice Work!
