    I was wondering how people are painting windows on terrain pieces. I’ve just moved into 28mm and am looking for best practices.

    I used to paint windows black, but in recent years I’ve gone for mid blue with a couple of white streaks.

    I paint mine silver/steel over a black undercoat……..an old mate of mine swore on hb pencil softly applied with varnish over the top……tried it and it works too. He has had stuff on the front cover of several modelling mags too……

    If there’s a fair amount of flat glass:

    Pane filled in with fine black pigment ink pen (from decent stationary shops);

    Dab or streak of slightly drybrushed Humbrol grey blue.

    For stained glass church windows, red, orange, green and blue mottled effect. Daft but looks right.
