As i promised, here is the stuff i´m actually working on.
Because i dont have a room only for my hobby i build a "table" which can easily be fold up. Here´s a little picture
Building a city, formerly known as River and Street W.I.P. Cimg0910

The last few years i build a few landscape like Hills, a gorge, a wood, a lake, some Houses and a graveyard.
When i found this site i get inspired to build some more. After thinking what to do first i decided to build a river and a street for my table.
here is what i´ve done so far.
Building a city, formerly known as River and Street W.I.P. Cimg0810
a few section of my river each is about 30cm/1ft long and 12,5cm/5inch broad

a street section with some designs i´ve tested to see which i prefer. For me it is a old dwarfen merchant street.
After building this i noticed that i need something to cross the river (there is a ford too) so i build a bridge
Building a city, formerly known as River and Street W.I.P. Cimg0811

This is how far i´ve come, but now I NEED YOUR HELP I want to build some details for my street. I have 11 street sections including one crossroads. The space beside the street is only 1cm/ less than a 1/2inch broad. For storage reason the thinks shouldn´t be too high (like signs, i will build them seperate)
Please send me some ideas what details i should ad. For brainstorming here are a few ideas i´ve thought about: - a dwarfen waystone, - a heap of paving stones left there by the dwarfen craftmans, - a broken wheel, - some puddles, - skeleton of an animal, - lost cargo like broken barrels or something,

Hey Opaque! I hope you don't mind, but I changed your links to photos...some of u00000s lazy types tend to skip posts that only have links to the pretty photos. All you have to do to put up pics is add an Building a city, formerly known as River and Street W.I.P.  before the address & an after it. What a Face

Your stuff looks TERRIFIC. I usually start with water as my base layer & add ground sections to mask those ares where I don't want the water to show. That aside, your river sections & the cool bridge look fine.
One of the little touches that I add is storm grates; just cut a square into the foam & put a grate of wood strips (I use thin & thick match sticks) to represent the iron grating. clown

@luckyjoe thank a lot it took me about 20min to do it only on one section. I hope the painting will make it worth.

looking good so far,
you could make the streets more visually attractive by making the coblestones more uneven. It would also be cool to make some gaps where stones are stolen/broken

a little like this

or more irregular patterns like this or this

@Captain Bernhardt: Thank you for your advice. I´ve thought about it to make it more irregular but i wanted to do it more dwarfen stile, regular. the cobblestones will get more uneven by the time.using a rubber and press some of the stones down and i thought about a section with destroyed/stolen parts of the street too.

but now it´s update time. i´ve build some details so look here

Looking good.

I second the idea of making the stones more uneven to add to the dilapidated look tipical of the city of the damned.

Your river looks very good too.

Is it scratch built?

If so... how did you achieve the "wet water" look?

Thanks and best wishes.

Thank you.

@ magokiron: for my river i used a 3mm mdf board as base (don´t know how it is called in Mexico in Germany it is mdf for "mitteldichte Faserplatte"). To built the bank i used 3mm styrofoam. The water effect is wood glue. I take one part water and two parts wood glue to get it liquid. After this i poured it to the painted river section (using Tesa strip at the end of each section to prevent that it goes everywhere) . First it was milky but after drying (took about 3-4 days because it was about 2-3mm thick all over) it became clear.
I´m very pleased how it came out.

Hi opaque.

Thanks for the answer, it's very useful, as I'm doing some river sections right now.

mdf (medium density fiberboard) I know how to ask for it here in Mexico, no worries. Actually I should have some pieces already lying somwhere Wink

I was thinking about using resin to "wet" my rivers, but will see with white glue.

Hope to see more of your work soon.

Best wishes.

Building a city, formerly known as River and Street W.I.P. Cimg1114

next thing i´m planing is:

1. put some colour on my street

2. build a tavern because every bridge and every crossroads has his own. (I build a few molds early this year and i will try how they will work)

3. put details and colour on the bridge

@magokiron: the Idea with the white glue is from another forum (i dont know which one). But there it was said you can colour the glue carefully and you will get some transperant green or blue (or if you like even brown) "water".

Ok, last time i´ve posted (maybe someone read it) i´ve mentioned the idea building a Tavern and now see what i´ve done this morning.

Building a city, formerly known as River and Street W.I.P. Cimg1115
just the foundation

Groundfloor finished

for a more ruined look just remove the corners

I just post because i´m wainting for the glue to dry. After this i will start building the firts floor.

Those rivers look great. I like your water color, and great job on the river banks. The layout of the tavern is very good, too. That's a great idea to have the corner section removable. It's like having two pieces of terrain in one. I'm looking forward to seeing more of this.

VERY CLEVER IDEA! Being able to swap from an intact building to a ruin adds a great versatility to the piece...being COOL looking is a plus. VERY NICELY DONE! thumbsup

Verry nice, it's agreat idea having the removable pieces.. could play vanilla Mordheim or EIF with it. The upper floor really looks good... floorboards are going to be a pain though.

The river sections look nice.. how about a pic of your board with the river sections and the hills+ woods on it please Very Happy

Good job... keep them coming

Thank you guys its like a warm sommerbreeze to me that you like what i´ve done

@deafnala: the idea with the removable section came to my mind during building the ground level. I´m quite pleased with it.

@luckyjoe: i didn´t thought about how to fix, but after you posted i ordered a few magnets immediately.

@smokezombie: well i will see what i can do.

O.k. a quick update, just finished the roof floor

I second luckyjoe's request for a mini or two partially for scale & mostly to see your brushwork. clown
