    Thanks mrtn, I may do that.

    As to the grey roof I think it looks realistic, means that not all roofs are the same age in your village.
    I think the tone of the grey is a little cool, I'd like it a bit warmer; it looks more like stone to me than weathered organic material like wood or thatch.

    Re: 28mm ECW/Medieval Terrain

    While out doing some Christmas shopping I came across some Lemax winter butternut trees in large pharmacy's Christmas section.

    I teased the branches out a bit...

    ... added some 3M Stripping Pad material, hit it with some grey primer and started applying some Scenic Express SuperLeaf.

    And voila!

    Not too shabby. If I wanted them for winter gaming I could have left them alone and they would have been excellent right out of the box.

    Looking good! Too bad these "if you go to store X right now" tips never apply to me, since I'm not Canadian/American/British etc.

    Lol, yeah I ran into a similar problem last night trying to find a specific brand of embossed sheet styrene that is made in the UK- it cant be found here in North America and all the online shops that will ship it here are out of stock.

    Some very nice work here Codsticker. I particularly like how you are using the 3M stripping pad for hedges and trees. Something that I may look into.

    Thank you Rogue. I am happy with how it works- it is now my go-to method for tree canopies and shrubbery.

    Re: 28mm ECW/Medieval Terrain

    Added a few more trees to my collection.

    Made using the same method as above except the trunks are a mix of sage brush cuttings and Woodland Scenics plastic 6"-7" armatures.

    Foliage is either the same SuperLeaf mix as above or Heki Tree Leaves 1620 (the tree on your left in the photo below).

    I also tried using some bark mulch from a garden centre, ground up in an old cheap coffee grinder for the forest floor. Although it could do with some dead leaves the texture and the colour (after a wash with burnt umber) is right I think.

    The bases were finished with my usual blend of static grasses, medium green SuperTurf and home made shrubs.

    Re: 28mm ECW/Medieval Terrain

    It seems a necessary piece of table top dressing for any ECW campaign is a little old English church. For some time now I had the intention of building or buying one; in the end I settled for a MDF kit from Warbases, although I have added quite a bit to it.
    I took it from this:



    To this:


    Three main upgrades were the use of Slaters Plastikard (7mm Dressed Stone) for the walls; quoins sculpted from grey stuff; and a slate roof sculpted from sheet styrene, moulded and cast. This the church after the upgrades but before primer:






    The master for the slate roof was very time consuming to make:

    Re: 28mm ECW/Medieval Terrain

    I didn't use the windows that came with the kit but instead I glued drywall mesh to the inside of the building and painted it black.



    For the front of the entrance I glued sheet styrene textured with a craft knife to represent wood to the MDF. The walkway is foam pavers.

    The tree is a plastic Woodland Scenics armature with my standard foliage recipe.



    I'm not 100% confident in my colour choice for the quoins; in the end I am satisfied but I think If I was going to do it over I think I would go with something a little more tan, a little less yellowy orange.





    I cannot recall where I bought the statue; I originally bought it for my Mordheim project and had forgot about it- I just remembered it yesterday- but it is a beautiful little piece of work.



    What's a church yard with out grave stones? These ones are simply made from XPS foam.



    One of the reasons I chose the Warbases kit is that it has a small footprint on the table. I think if I was building it specifically for skirmish gaming I would have gone with a bigger kit, like Sarissa Precision's church.
