Prep: Fully build the shack and undercoat black.
A note on drybrushing: When covering larger areas, especially on terrain, I prefer to use drybrushing. This technique requires you to add a light amount of paint to the brush and then remove most of it. Lightly brushing over some kitchen roll until only a small amount of chalky paint is left. When brushed over a model this hits the hard edges but can also be used to build up in layers to create a gradation in colour.
A specific drybrush helps greatly, especially on larger models. Something like this or this.
Dawnstone: Apply a basecoat across the shack.
Celestra Grey: Apply a heavy drybrush from the top down.
Ulthuan Grey: Apply a medium drybrush from the top down.
