28mm Bridge

Recently I have been working on 28mm terrain for my Saga games.  The bridge pictured below is made by Acheson Creations out of resin.  I purchased it at Historicon 2013.

I started out by washing it in the dishwasher at the same time as several Acheson buildings to remove the mold release agent.  Next I spray primed it black, then gave it a thin coat of black paint to cover any spots the spray missed.

I gave the wood a heavy drybrush with Vallejo German Camo Medium Brown, then another drybrush of Howard Hues Colonial Khaki.  I finished with a light drybrush of Vallejo Stonewall Gray.

The water areas were painted with Howard Hues Bright Blue.  I then applied a coat of Turquoise Glaze from a very old bottle of Games Workshop paint from when Coat d'Arms manufactured their paints (late 90s?) to deepen the color.  Next I drybrushed Ceramcoat Blue Jay, then a mix of Blue Jay and White.

I painted the dirt at each end, added a few patches of static grass and tufts, then finished it off with 2 coats of Testors Dullcote.

The first few photos are of the bridge alone, then there are some with 4 Foundry Vikings for scale.  The bridge comes in 5 pieces: 2 ends, a center section and 2 supports for the center.  This piece may also show up minus one end as a pier in a Doctor Who or Across the Dead Earth game.

Thanks for looking!
