I like the ruin!! Is there enough space to move your hand (and a mini) around on the 1st floor?

The wizards tower looks promising, I look forward to seeing some progress.

Cheers!

VERY NICE STUFF! cheers

Both of the buildings have a LOT of potential. Your woodwork is EXTREMELY well done,especially the fit on the beams.
While it may not have the same gaming possibities as the other structure, I LOVE the Tower; it's a DEFINITE center-piece. GOOD WORK! thumbsup

I'm with DeafNala on this one - the wooden beams on the ruined building are amazingly accurate and well-fitted, and the wizard's tower (because of its unique shape) is definitely going to be a focal point on the table. The only thing you might want to do is to think about how to make it more 'game-friendly'. Maybe a wooden balcony or external stairs would do it - something to allow models to climb/interact with it.

hmm, it's a bit narrow but it can be done

All of mine terrain is very narrow to move stuff around, otherwise the terrain pices would be very large.

wow the support beams for your floor are amazing! I have been trying to figure out how to do mine, first i used foamboard to support the floors but it took up to much space needed for tall figures. Eventually when i get to making my terrain again I'll do something similar to you.

Edit: I just got a great idea from further studying your building! I'm going to do exactly what you did with the cross beams being used as supports or the upper story because i like how they overhang on the outside of the building. But i think i will go a step farther and not glue the stories together. The slots should make it fairly sturdy for most buildings with 3 walls. For very destroyed buildings i think i'll glue it down since getting my hand in won't be hard.

Can't wait to see what you do with these, keep the ideas flowin'!
