Warsenal Cosmica HAB Building

The Cosmica Colony is a fantastically detailed collection of modular terrain by Warsenal. The range consists of several frames with a variety of wall panels that can be swapped in and out as desired.

This building is their HAB Building, which bundles the Zeta Frame and Zeta Roof with the Airlock, Transfer Tunnel, Bunks and Observation Panel facades.

Weathering
First, using VMC German Camo Black Brown and some blister pack foam, stipple the paint sparingly around the edges and corners for the chipped and scratched paint look.
Then, using an airbrush, use straight GW Agrax Earthshade to dakren anbd dirty the white and orange sections.
To weather the black sections, airbrush a mic of VMC Orange Brown and Cavalry Brown.

  1. Very nice, and thanks for the painting tips on building. Terrain painting intimidates me and this was very helpful.

    Cheers
