The Blue Wolf Inn
Of the two rival coaching inns in Gierburg the Blue Wolf is renowned for their fine menu of foods and drinks, every mouthful is more than equal quality to the fare at the Golden Knight, if at more acceptable prices than its rival which prides itself with being the place to cater for more noble and refined palates. If the Blue Wolf is less choosey about its clientale, the better reputation it has received is a price its owner and proprietor is willing to pay.

You can read a big 'making of' including tutorials and colour choices on my blog.

That REALLY is a SPECTACULAR piece of work. I especially like the brickwork AND can appreciate the amount of time & effort, not to mention a fair bit of talent, necessary to achieve that level of realism. All the exterior details from the horse traught to all the barrels & boxes bring the Beasty to life. EXCEPTIONALLY WELL DONE! thumbsup

ADDENDUM: I forgot to mention I LOVE the Ivy; beautifully done & you showed a LOT of restraint in NOT modeling ALL the little red berries. thumbsup

Excellent post(s) (here and on your blog) Cianty. Thanks a lot for the descriptions. I have eagerly been waiting to know what colour mixes you used!

And I feel honoured that my miniatures star on those pics as the first citizens of Gierburg Smile

Maybe you should explain a little more what Gierburg is... Wink

Thank you guys! This is my first proper building so I hope to improve on the next ones.

Yes, they are great. For now!

I am happy to have the members of Captain Redbeard's Sea Dogs roam the streets for now.

Wow, The extra details you've added are great, the barrels, the boxes and expecially the vines! How did you make those? They really make the building come alive. Awsome work, keep it coming please!

The stable is an addition to the Blue Wolf Inn. You can read a review of this model - the Warhammer Stable by Forge World - and a tutorial for the stone walls on my blog.

Wow. Amazing Very Happy
It's a very good idea painting scenery so precisely like minis. I think many people (including me) want to have a great scenery and their buildings look good, but if they have to paint them, they want to do it fast, because "it's only scenery, not a mini". Your works may help to change it Smile

Absolutely stunning! I thought Wolfgang's Mortheim board was untouchable in its quality, but if you maintain this trend, Gierburg will share the spotlight.

Hope you like it! Smile

BEAUTIFULLY PAINTED as always! thumbsup
I'm a bit puzzled as to how this sucker works; I would imagine that a bloomery is a forge, but I don't see any way to put in the coal or heat the metal. Is there an opening on the side opposite the bellows? confused

VERY, VERY NICE! You've developed a REAL flair for painting LOVELY & highly realistic scenery. I LOVE the Autumn feel you've achieved on your bases. I'm looking forward to the eventual group shots. VERY WELL DONE! thumbsup
