In this series of articles, we will follow our Goran, Kruno, Dalibor, Nino, Jelena, Domagoj, Borna and Marko in making a diorama / game board for the side game Full Tilt from the '90s. The board and miniatures are part of the new UMS “Agram” project called Agram Group Build which was created so that more people could participate in one joint project at the same time and learn something with fun. No prior knowledge or experience is important. With our experienced miniaturists, everyone will learn something.

Although there was no plan to work on the terrain, Marko caught some time between instructions and put the base layers on the base. He started with a thatched roof on which he put a base coat of ocher paint and after drying put a wash of darker shades.

A cheerful five-member crew of which only me and the road leader Josip went with the intention of participating and exhibiting at the show, he brought home and wallpaper for the animated picture, while I brought one bust, 3 figures and eyes from a miniature painting workshop from February .

The hall is quite an impressive building called the United Foam Manufacturers Arena (UFM), so we accidentally parked a little too far from it, as we were guided by navigation via address rather than actual location. It was already very crowded from the early morning, but despite that, we successfully completed the process of registration and submitting the model for trial and competition in 10-15 minutes.

Marin decided to use this Wednesday to work on his two figures for the audience. "Two young ladies gathered near the stream and began preparations for the knights' tournament. They will certainly not stay clean and hungry, but whether they will catch a knight is another story. We'll find out when they finally get some paint on. "

Last time we finished with the interior of the UAZ, so this, the last, article will be dedicated to the exterior cladding of the van. The first thing I did was paint the metalwork with a brush and then randomly covered the parts with Scratches and Heavy Chipping effects. After that, I painted the model with two yellow sprays.

When the spray dried, I glued the masking tape over the parts I didn't want to paint a different color and applied a layer of spray again, this time red.

Then I added stickers. For help, I used Ammo by Mig decal effect...
