Ruined Café

I already have two of the ruined buildings from the Total Battle Miniatures range of Western Europe 15mm buildings, the ruined three houses and ruined four houses. I was lucky enough to get two more for my birthday from Simon, thank you. He gave me the ruined café and ruined shop with passage.

The ruined cafe is a really nice building and comes complete with some “pavement” out the front that would have been used with tables and chairs. This is the photograph from the manufacturer.

It’s a nice casting with clean detail and looks very effective. I will probably use a similar method to the one I used with the other ruins.

After washing the resin I will give the model a white undercoat and then use a combination of washing and drybrushing to bring out the detail.

The first stage after washing the resin will be to then clean the flash from the casting, especially the windows and the doors.

Having done this, I gave the model a light white undercoat, hence it isn't white, it still has a yellow tinge of the underlying resin.
