Hi everyone! I have spent a few hours painting ruins included in one of the kits from Bolt Action in 28mm. I have not finished with the taller ruin (the interior is not done) and I want to add some vines and burn scar … What should I do to improve it? Thanks!
They look more like abandoned and decayed ruins rather than war damaged. War damage caused by shells and fire cause far more rubble, broken bits of household goods and other detritus. So some more blackening on the inside, more rubble and wreckage.
I would avoid vines and go for wrecked gardens. A Google search on WW2 ruins might help. The Oradour-sur-Glane site will give some ideas but remember that it is well weathered now.
