    Re: 28mm ECW/Medieval Terrain

    Thanks mrtn.

    I finished the other two houses in the Tabletop Workshop catalogue: the Town House and the Merchant's House.

    The Town House comes with, what I think is, a slate roof. A little hard to tell as the shape of the roofing suggests either tile or slate but it has linear texture like a cedar shingle.

    I decided the merchant's house would be older daub so I made stronger water stains and added faint mold along the bottom.

    I switched up my daub approach as I am still not completely happy with it.

    Before the building was finished I took a few shots of the interior of the Merchant's House.

    The roof and second floor pop off allowing access.

    Here is a 28mm plastic musketeer for scale; you can see he is a little tall.

    Just for the sake of completing the set, a couple of weeks ago I ordered the Stable and Medieval Chapel from Warlord Games. As I am still awaiting stuff from the UK I ordered in February I am not expecting them anytime soon...

    Very nice Codsticker.

    I assume that one side is removable and that is why you painted the interior...not just because you could see it through the windows.

    Cheers,

    Thanks CB. Actually the roof lifts off and the second floor comes out. I just had it semi-assembled when I took the picture.

    Re: 28mm ECW/Medieval Terrain

    Going through my backlog of un-built kits I uncovered a second Renedra Ramshackle Barn (the first one I built here).

    The kit comes with a tile roof but as I was building this one for 17thC and I wanted it to fit in with the other rural buildings I tried my hand at a thatch roof, using the hobby standard fake fur.

    Not entirely pleased with the result, but acceptable as the barn is "ramshackle"; I would like to give it a couple more attempts before I try an alternative method.

    While googling old thatch roofs, photos of roofs with plants growing in them showed up and as the barn is in disrepair I decided to add some.


    The Perry Miniatures cottage a few posts back comes with a fence made of hurdles; as I didn't use it with the cottage I decided to turn it into a pinfold.

    A pinfold is essentially the olden days version of the pound; if your animals strayed they would get locked in there and you would have to pay a fine to get them out.

    I should have included a couple of cattle for scale but I haven't any painted yet. If you squint you can see a horse at far end of the pinfold in the photo below (he'd pop out of there like t was nothing...).

    That barn looks even more ramshackle than it usually does!
    Funilly enough I'm painting that wattle fence at the moment, and I just bought the Tabletop Workshop Cottage and Barn (North Star had a sale), so I'll probably paint them soon too.
    Nice work.

    Excellent!

    Those Tabletop Workshop buildings are well designed- you can paint them up very simply and quickly and they will still look good.

    Re: 28mm ECW/Medieval Terrain

    Two more Tabletop Workshop buildings out of the way: the barn and the stable.

    The barn I actually painted and finished about 3 years ago.

    The kits all use the same roof pieces (the town house excepted), end walls (merchant's house excepted) and floor - it's the long walls that make each kit different.

    With the stable I tried to replicate the daub colouring of the Perry's cottage (I should have wrote it down...); I think I got pretty close. One thing I regret is not filling in the tabs in the end walls with putty; they really stand out in the close up photos- not so noticeable on the table though.

    The roof came out a little too light grey for my liking- I think I will give it a glaze with a dark brown just to warm it up a bit.

    I do have plans to take some pictures with the whole village set up; I may get around to that this coming weekend.

    Add some green moss made of green stuff over the tabs and they will vanish under perfectly normal growth.

    My two cents,

    Good idea. Or maybe I should plant some shrubs at those corners.

    Nice work. I'm in the process of painting my houses, and I just filled in the gable tabs with greenstuff, after painting the rest of the houses. I'm sure you can do the same with yours.

    As to the grey roof I think it looks realistic, means that not all roofs are the same age in your village.
