The towers are painted with latex and acrylic paint.The stone is given a dark gray base color with a lighter gray drybrush highlighting finish.The copper domes are painted with turqoise mixed with gray to reduce thecolor saturation.They are drybrushed with a shade lighter.The completed paint job is finished with Krylon matte varnishto make it more durable for gaming.

Not magnificent buildings, but the two towers are usefulwhen you need an objective, or a defended position in a town.With the two tops, the tower serve well as military ofpeaceful towers.
