"The item in this image is a set of steel pipes arranged to serve as a roadblock, scaled at 1:56, which I painted to give a realistic appearance for wargaming scenarios. To achieve the finished look, I used a combination of acrylic paints, starting with a base coat of rusty brown to give the pipes an aged and corroded effect. From there, I applied a dry brushing technique to highlight the texture and edges with lighter rust shades. To create contrast, I included patches of sandbags which I painted in a muted earth tone, followed by a light dry brushing to accentuate the details. The ground cover was painted to mimic a dirt road, flecked with static grass and small stones to add to the realism. This gives the impression that the roadblock has been hastily arranged in a combat zone. Additional details, such as wheel rims and oil drums, are picked out in shades that complement the overall scheme, grounding the piece in a believable setting." - Stuart
