Hi! I am rather new to the forum as a registered user, but as a "lurker" I have been here a while, drawing inspiration from the wonderful sceneries found on this board.
Now I have completed a few pieces of my own (although at a painfully slow rate) and thought I could as well share them myself. The pictures are simply shot with a Phone, but I think they capture the atmosphere well.

In the pictures there are a lot of manufacturers drawn together as well as scratch-build stuff, but if you are interested I can point out which items come from which source.

Very nice work. Were the cobblestone streets made or bought? It all looks great.

Thank you for your nice feedback!

The streets are bought (unpainted) from "Stronghold Terrain" in Germany (cast in Resin), the Town Square ist mainly Hirst Arts. I don't know why but I do not like the Hirst Arts Cobblestones so much, although they do give nice results when painted.

Hej, this is awesome, great collection of buildings! I guess the one in the middle is a scratch build one, looks good, also love the palette of colours you´ve chosen.

Oh, boy! Such a wonderful job you did there. Painting-wise, building, composition and shooting. It makes me want to see more. Smile

Well that looks excellent, the cam on your phone isn't all that bad! I love the buildings, they all look evocative and atmospheric and excellent to play on. Nice choice of colours, too. The cobbled streets are also very nice, thanks for the link to Stronghold!

Thank you all very much!!

Actually there are two reasons I like the photos myself:

1) Samsung phones are not crap anymore
2) Real sunlight always lets your scenery shine Smile
It was more of a coincidence as I tend to live in apartments with "funny" windows and last weekend I have seen the sun shining on my stuff ...

I thought about modifying the pictures but left them as they were.

About playability: that is my main focus. To have a completely modular and playable terrain system. As you can see there are a lot of gaps betweem the pieces, something you can only avoid when you fix them to the boards, but I am happy with the pieces as they are Smile
I am a "Butterfly", always thinking what if I want to use some pieces for Victorian or modern or SciFi games ...

The colours alre also important .. to have something that ties the different parts together I settled for a muted palette and a worn look. I am still experimenting with pigments, inks, flock and whatnot Wink

I will post more links to the sources I use and I will open a thread with unfinished stuff.

Not so scruffy! I really like your roads, they look great!
Very nice brushwork too, this one is well on it's way.

Hy Gnorhk,

Really cool looking town and Lanzenkirchen sounds very Wald/Wein/4. Laughing (Austrians will understand)

Dude where is Your church,and lances? geek
LOL,I just kidding it is beautiful little town,I think it must to grow bigger.
Lots of potential,the houses are all two story high so lots of space to play on limited space.
You are right the medieval towns tend to be clogged with buildings so tight that the citizens have very little space to stroll around and of top of that they usually threw the waist and garbage through windows directly onto street so I will make my streets moderately dirty with some junk food leftovers. It is just a suggestion I just now constructed in my mind .

I don't think that Your buildings are widely spaced,on the contrary. They are well spaced but not too wide,they excellently represent medieval town center with lot of space to be used for all sorts of obstacles;barrels,crates,wood boxes, fallen walls,dead animal corpses (just kidding),shattered windows glass and chandeliers and such.

Town is so clear, with well swiped roads and squares,almost creepy to my eyes affraid .
That is not a critique my friend just a question..why ?

SALUTE mighty one,to beer or not to beer it is a question now Dad Babasanfur

@justizius ... I was thinking I am alone here Wink .. but no wald/wein/4, it's from the industrial south, and the emblem of Lanzenkirchen is actually painted on the GW Guard Tower Wink

@Sultan .. you are right with the clean roads ... I am already painting crates / boxes / grain bags/etc. but I am not sure how far I will go. The garbage / broken glass/ debris is a great inspiration / feedback, although I am not sure how much I am willing to modify the modular roads ... maybe I will try on one piece!

And the church is already on its way, I will well throw in a few lances Wink


...


someone mentioned tentacles before. Has the post been edited? Anway, I am also working on this since I saw the "posessed" bases of Micro Arts Studio (maybe similiar bases from Scibor are even better). Imagine a house VERY close to an impact crater full of warpstone ... Wink
