​​From Kitsch to Wargaming Tower


In this video we will be renovating a Christmas kitsch decoration to become an awesome wargaming tower for our fantasy gaming. To begin, we strip off any excess pieces on the tower. Then we add details such as the stone facade, the shingled roof, and the stones around the doors and windows. Once this was finished, we added a couple of base coats of black paint, upon which we drybrushed various colors and shades to give the tower a weathered look. To finish off the process, we made doors and shutters out of small stirring sticks, which we roughed up with a knife and then stained using ink washes. The final product is a beautiful wargaming tower that will serve as the centerpiece for many fantasy battles!
