Well, I'm overly critical of myself, but I allow a little room for first attempts. This is my first home built Mordheim building - a cottage of some sorts. One thing to note, the flash of my camera took out most of the highlighting on the walls. It actually goes up to skull white and has a stucco appearance.

Anyways, looking to get better/improve, so please C/C.

Your first building looks better than my twentieth Razz

Ergo: Great job! Smile

Looks nice!

Some thoughts:
You should place the shingles above those further down and thus work your way up to the top. Especially on the second photo it seems you went the opposite way.

Maybe using some more wood for the edges would look good. You could then hide the edges of the foamboard (on which the roof is glued which is visible on photo 2).

The wood stips on the floor could be placed closer to each other so you don't have any gaps. I can see one of them going up in the first photo. Maybe use something to fix them while drying next time to prevent them from bending.

I really like the greyish look on the inside of the house! It looks diry and rundown.

All in all a nice playable piece. Let's see the next one! bounce

A very nice piece to begin with...

Great texture on the walls and a nice paint job. I also like triangular window!

I second the comment on the roof shingles. Work your way from the bottom all the way to the top, placing each next layer a bit on top of the other (check some of the terrain logs on the forum for examples)... Add some more windows to open up your building.

Very nice piece and looking forward to number two!

One more as pretty much everything else has been said; I like to use actual moss instead of static grass...it has a much better effect and is way cheaper.

Looks pretty good for a first build! Hope to see more in the future!

Listen to the others about the tiles...

One other quick thing... while you are experimenting, finding your style and learning different techniques maybe save the cool plastic bits until you've had a litte more practice with the basics. Just a thought unless you have a
box of bits overflowing that you can use. That's just me though.

Good start on hopefully a city full of ruins and maybe a few fully intact buildings as well!
