Had a very busy day of grinding away at base resin castings, so much resin dust gahhh. Thought I'd try and get all my pirate bases done in one go to get me motivated on getting my pirates done. So after I primed them I got to work on the bases of the jacks sitting on my desk and the tower since they are all timber.
Went with a dark base then 3 goes of drybrushing lighter browns then some quick shading with GW washes to deepen the tones and darken the joins. I think it works as a quick method to do timber.
