Ahoy hoy folks!

I decided to take a break from Gripenhem for a few to re-charge my batteries. During that time I whipped up a little Midlanders peasant cottage. On the vast planes, there isn't much lumber to be had in construction, so the folk use what is most commonly available: stone and grass.

Very atmospheric piece. You can almost feel that it's a sunny day and the pig is having a good time collecting acorns and such!

You have a real flair for bucolic settings. I love the way it's partially built into the ground. The roof is LOVELY & all the little touches make it a living scene. VERY WELL DONE! ††thumbsup

A great piece of terrain! I love the details, especially highly detailed vegetation.

Great piece of terrain †thumbsupthumbsup

The base is a bit odd though, are those overlapping CDs?

Exactly. I was going for cheap and fast. Not good though. Pretty flimsy. But cheap and fast, yes.

I had pretty much walked away from this temple for Gripenhem. It just wasnít working for me, I was decided to do a much more western European style chapel. The problem with a regular chapel though, is the room at the top of the island for the church. Itís pretty small, so the church would be smaller and shorter than most of the buildings in town, that doesnít seem right. So, Iím back to the onion dome tower. Except Iím doing away with the onion dome, it just doesnít scale right.
Anyhow, this temple is definitely the tallest building in town. Tall enough in fact, that you can see the spire over the roofs of the other buildings from across town. However, once I get the buildings on the high street built, it wonít seem awkwardly tall. I also put a magnet in the spire and in the statue, so that I can swap out the statue spire for say, a cross or whatever if I want to change it up. So yeah, I think Iím gonna start roofing this beastie. Oh, and I have to magnetize it to a foundation, if I ever want to get the island to leave this room that is.

Oh, lovely stuff! The amount of angles and detail you already have on that temple is incredible!

I also want to make a Eastern-European style church, so I'll be checking this out very closely!

Joao

P.S. just read the idea of magnetising the foundation. Really good idea. Buildings like the temple deserve to be shot outdoors against a real backdrop.

I know.....


I'm also thinking of changing hte color scheme too. I just feel the brown stone base might be too dark for stonework. Will probably work for the natural stone, but not for block. I don't know though, I'm gonna try something mustard and cream based.

Ironing out the roof base for the temple. Itís a patchwork because thatís much easier than doing maths and figuring out the angles.

That is LOVELY! As someone who with an Ad Lib approach to modeling, your method is almost scientific to moi. Keep up the WONDERFUL WORK; inspiration of this caliber is hard to come by. ††thumbsup

I don't know if my soul could take another bout of single shingles, so I'm doing something I haven't done in years: scaled roofing.

I've started with a sheet of styrene, in this case a no loitering sign. I marked the back of it with 1/4" lines, and then cut every second line with a pair of heavy pinking shears.

Once I've got my strips, I glue them in place with overlapping rows.

Very nice effect! I might give that a try on one of my next projects. I like giving each building something a little different from the others.
Well done!

Did a little bit of carving yesterday. Now Iíve got a good idea of how narrow the streets will be, which is quite.

That does look SPLENDID. As always, your stonework is WONDERFUlLY detailed. The narrow streets may be difficult should you elect to use Gripenhem as a gaming board, but they really give the feel of a Medieval/Renaissance town. GREAT WORK!thumbsup

Still carving these little buildings for Gripenhem. Itís a bit tedious, since none of them are particularly interesting, but will be a bit more once they are all connected. Also kinda funny when it sits on itís lopsided foundation. It all makes sense when put on the hill. Also as an aside, the rest of these will have woodwork on the backs. I was trying to keep it clean for it being an outer (defensive) wall, but itís boring to look at. Woodwork is much more interesting. Maybe Iíll add some dormers or overhangs or something.

The top pic is the entrance to a downstairs flat. The stairs will lead to a separate entrance to an upstairs flat. Around back will be stairs that lead to a garden overlooking the falls.
The bottom picture is going to become a street bridge home. The buildings are really coming along now, Iím probably about 40% done laying out the buildings.
