Dagon Statue: Bones 3 Terrain

Chris Palmer

   I thought I’d make a quick Thursday post for a bit of terrain I just completed.  I painted up the Dagon Statue from Bones 3.  This figure was added in to the Bones 3 Kickstarter at the very end via the Pledge Manager.   I picked it up, since I figured it would make a good terrain piece for Ghost Archipelago.
      I prepped the 2 pieces in the usual way; soaking them in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish-soap added, then giving them a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsing and drying them.    I then glued the large section to a black-primed 2" fender washer, and the smaller section to a 1.25" black-primed fender washer, both with Aleene’s Tacky glue.

      I began by painting both pieces entirely with Black.  I then drybrushed them heavily with Americana “Zinc”.

     I then drybrushed both pieces with Americana “Neutral Grey”, followed by Apple Barrel “Rock Grey”, and then Folk Art “Porcelain White”.
      I let the pieces dry overnight and the next day I gave them a coat of Americana “DuraClear Matte” varnish.    Then, when  the varnish was dry, I used some white glue to glue a little sand to the base.  When this was dry, I painted the sand with Americana “Asphaltum”.  When the “Asphaltum” was dry, I drybrushed the bases with some of the Ceramcoat “Territorial Beige”, and then some Americana “Antique White”.   Lastly, I glued on some tufts of grass.
       I let the figure dry overnight and the next day I gave it a coat of Americana “DuraClear Matte” varnish.  Another overnight dry, and I sprayed the statue with Testor’s Dullcote".

    I’m real happy with how this terrain turned out.  It’s nothing fancy, but a welcome addition to my growing collection of Ghost Archipelago terrain.
