I love it when I get the opportunity to paint up brand new stuff, so when I was sent a nice little package of some newly cast post-apocalyptic / science fiction buildings from Fogou Models (swapped for some of my Colony 87 figures).
I received the bundle of stuff below - a blockwork structure, an adobe building and a little tin shack. Also included was a nice selection of accessories - a barricade, some barrels and some pots and jars. I'm yet to paint up the blockwork building or the pots, but I devoted a couple of painting sessions to the rest of the items.
First up is this gorgeous adobe building (sold as Logan's World of Ancient Wonders). It is brilliantly sculpted, with lots of nice texture and details. I painted mine up in traditional white. Firstly I sprayed it with Games Workshop's Zhandri Dust, before drybrushing with Pallid Wych Flesh. I overpainted the blue stripe before painting all the little details.
Most of the weathering is done with washes, or in the case of the rusty metal, stippling a mid-brown over a darker brown with a piece of sponge.
|I love the details like the A/C unit on the blocks, and the little gas canister hidden behind the sign.|
For the lettering on the sign, I attempted to copy one of the signs from the Rogue Trader Helsreach illustrations by Carl Critchlow.
The second building I've painted is this lovely little tin shack (sold as Var-Dezz's Res). I wanted something a bit more colourful than my usual rusted metal approach, so I included some blue and grey panels alongside the rust!

And whilst I was on a roll, I decided to paint up the barrels and barricade at the same time.
This kind of scatter terrain is brilliant for adding character to a table or to setup little diorama scenes for photography.
Overall, I couldn't be more pleased with the quality of the Fogou models. The resin casting is crisp and the details are excellent. Hopefully there will be more in the range to come!
