Hello folks. I have been lurking here for a while and thought I would try posting some pics of my first two buildings. This is the first pics I have ever posted on any forum so Please tell me how it looks , if it's to big or any other info. Thank you and feedback always welcome.


This burned out Inn was just painted black then drybrushed with a dark brown then grey and white . I was really suprised at how well it looks textured after it was done.







The texture on this house is done with the PVA toilet paper method . I think it turned out great but it was kinda a pain to work with.

That looks really good, nicely painted too. Could maybe add a few details to it but it's a fine start so far! Where's the picture of the other building? Would like to see more.

Thanks. I wanted something a little different since it's supposed to be a burned out inn so I used a Hirst Arts door and cut the frame to match. It was kind of an after thought , next time I will cut the opening in the wall big enough for the frame to continue to the inside

Very nice looking building. I really like how the interrior flors came out.

The door is also a nice touch, gives the building just enough extra character.

Here are some WIP pics of a pool I started. I have seen a pool with a body floating in it , can't remember if it was here or somewhere else , and thought it was a great idea for scenery.

It is made of old Hirst Arts blocks I had torn apart from a failed dungeon project. I didn't read Bruce's tutorial on pouring plaster in the middle of a project like this and wish I had. I didn't wet it down before pouring and it hardened up quickly. That is why there is PVA glue in the corners to fill the voids there.

I hope it turns out good , this is my first attempt at useing Woodland Scenics realistic water product or any water product for that matter.

These do look good!

Could you explain this toilet paper texturing method a little more?

I first saw it used on this site http://www.miniwargaming.com/ for a meteor blast terrain piece where they waded TP up and soaked it with watered down glue to make "humped up" earth.
Basically I painted the walls with watered down PVA glue then layed torn sheets of TP over that and smoothed it somewhat with an old paint brush. It makes a very nice wrinkled old plaster look.

On Woodland Scenics water products... the best advice I can give is to be extremely patient and follow the instructions to the letter. Resist the urge to pour in lots all at once. Pour 1/8th" at a time. Let it dry someplace where there isn't a lot of free-floating dust. Let it dry at least 24 hours in between each thin layer.

Well here is the finished pool. It turned out ok but not like I thought it would. It looks good from a bit of a distance but up close it doesn't look natural enough for me.

I'm going to do some test pieces this coming weekend , which I should have done before jumping in head first , and see if I can come up with a different way to get the effect I'm looking for.

I really like the body floating in the pool. A bit grotesque but very in character. I might have to try something similar with a fountain in the future... So many things to do!

I really love the fountain. I started building one myself today I was so excited by yours! I built it quite differently though. I'll post it in another thread when I am finished. Thanks for the inspiration!

I thought I would post an update of what I am sloooowly working on now. I decided to start makeing some game board pieces so I can get more of an idea of how I will design the rest of my buildings.

On the hill top I am going to make a grave yard piece and a ruined house so I can swap them out for variety. As an after thought I am also going to cut an area out of the hill to build a catacomb beneath whichever is set up on top. Painting the river section and getting it to look realistic is going to be my biggest challenge. If anyone has any suggestions , links or tutorials that can help please let me know.

The sections are 2'x2' and I still have 4 more sections to use. I am thinking of useing 2 as river sections and 2 as raised sections , probably 3 inches taller than the " standard " pieces which are just half inch foam.

Dozer I think the fountain looks great. The only thing I could add is maybe some ripples around the body using Water Effects. I like how the 2 x 2 sections are turning out.

VERY NICE! I LOVE the staircase/bridge leading up the hill...the Gothic style would lend itself to your Death Squad games also. I'm working on Geo-Hex tiles at the moment, SO...I can appreciate the "SLOWLY" part of the equation. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK! thumbsup

Here are some progress shots of the game board. I used spray adhesive for the flocking so I could control where it went and it worked out pretty good. I wasn't crazy about the shade of green at first but after spraying a section with a matte clear coat it darkened and dulled down. The dirt also looks better after the matte finish. I only had enough in the can to do 1 section so I didn't bother takeing a picture of it yet.

Next will be getting the bridge painted and some rocks and water in the river bed.

VERY NICE PROGRESS! Even at this stage, I can see Bands of Warriors & other miscreants wander over it...of course at this time of day I see a lot of things that aren't really there Suspect . The colors are nicely subdued. Keep up the GOOD WORK! thumbsup

Thanks very much for the comments, it is greatly appreciated. Hopefully I can find the time this weekend to finish the bridge and the water effect.
