Ah ha, Weed Hopper, I found your source of inspiration in the Inspiration Sticky Thingy [HOW appropriate Suspect ]: The Yellow Crane Tower. WOW, what a GREAT choice! It's JUST GORGEOUS AND I think you are going to do it justice. This may well be your MASTERPIECE! OH BABY Karate thumbsup

I really hope so. Suspect considering how long it takes me to achieve some notable progress it better be.


Here are some more current pictures, by the way:




The balustrade and the woodwork in general are quite time-consuming for each level. I hope to finish it someday!






Complete view:






As always I made a roof proxy first. This one is only to give me a rough idea of what the tower's gonna look like and when I have decided on how to do the roof I will do another more exact proxy roof.

Butt-ugly tower. Sorry.

























No i'm just kidding. It's awesome! I never seen someone do proxy roof like that. It's definitly something I'm going to try next time I plan a complex roof-work, so it doesnt end up being a mess, like it usualy does <.<.

These corrugated paper roofs are way too time-consuming and and inflexible to do them without properly calculating and experimenting what the correct angles, proportions and sizes are.

Basically I'm just a sissy, yes, and I'm afraid to mess it up midway. Neutral

Awesome job, Cianty! I've already seen some of your works before and I'm stunned - you're an experienced and skilled craftsman indeed Very Happy!

P.S. I like the idea of using this corrugated cardboard to make roofs - simple and very effective Very Happy!

Yep, great stuff over there. The Tea House is awesome. DeafNala posted a link to his site some days (weeks?) ago and I have it bookmarked since then.

The Gate
With the Boring Meeting at my place approaching quickly (starting this Friday!) I am currently speed-building a wall section with a gate so that we can play the Siege! scenario from the BTB supplement. I didn't have a proper gate before as we've been playing with proxies in my group until now, but for the meeting this would not suffice. There will be lots of photos taken so I won't be able (allowed!) to place lousy markers. Smile

You can see the existing walls here on page 2 and here on page 3.

And now for some first photos of the gate section WIP:










More coming soon! Cathayan Monk 2

Thanks, Al! Well, there are different conditions for the two projects: BTB is a Mordheim supplement and I don't want to use non-GW miniatures and terrain to make it feel as "real" as possible. Gierburg doesn't have these restrictions and I want to create the best possible terrain for that - which is why I don't have to limit myself to scratch-built scenery, or let's say, I CAN use ready made resin scenery and as long as I find that that looks better than my scratch-built houses I will use that. It's hard to scratch-build buildings that are en par with Tabletop World's stuff so I will go with that. Because I want the best possible terrain. I will definately build my own houses sooner or later, though, to see how that looks and what I can come up with.

Alright, back on topic - the gate is finished and awaiting undercoat:

Thanks, Enarion!

I used spackle on the walls. And for a less strong texture I usually use a mix of wall paint and sand.
