Small update.

Tried darker shades of blue: Didn't work for me at all.

Tried various shades of red: Didn't work for me at all.

Tried greyish white: Ooookay.


So currently I'm at either white for the windows are going back to brown. Not liking this whole issue.

Any progress? Did the windows came out OK? If not, forget about them, carry on with painting, and return to them when you feel like it. Smile

Thanks for the interest. Well, I am not too happy with the white. The brown is okay. I guess I'll leave it brown for now. Not really happy though.

Unfortunately I can't work on the other floor because of some dependencies. I'll work on another piece now (ebay auction I received just today).

To get that wood effect I think I would try and do the steps in the reverse to what has been suggested - paint it blue and then drybrush over the top with the wood colour. I think by drybrushing the blue over brown, the blue would end up on the edges and the more raised surfaces, which is the opposite of how something like that would normally age (paint wearing off raised/exposed areas). However you might get a good result going brown-blue-light brown, as again you would be taking the blue off the raised areas in the last step.

Hope this helps!

That is an interesting approach. Sounds very reasonable. Well, I guess I'll might try it although I almost through with colours. Laughing

I'm currently taking a break from the mansion and painting the ForgeWorld stable. The building is "made" of stone so I wonder how I should paint it. Sure, drybrush several layers of grey is obvious but it want the stones to vary in colour (this is always a great effect, see the brickwork on the inn a few pages earlier).

Do you have any clever ideas for colour combinations that would work on this model?

For reference:

After a long time, another update at last!

Thomas "chicken" Hahn of www.tabletop-fantasywelten.de, who is currently working on an Imperial table for next year's Tactica convention in Hamburg, sent me this scratch-built house by him. It is currently on my workbench and will be the next addition to my Gierburg table.

VERY NICE addition to The Cause. I especially like the chimney & that cool little basement window. Once you've applied the now FAMOUS cianty touch, it WILL be a BEAUTY! thumbsup

He said he would love to see one of his buildings painted by me, so he asked if he could give it to me. I figured that's when you stop asking questions and accepted his offer. Very Happy

Anyone still remember the Governor's Mansion from page 3? Well, it is finished now at last. *phew* It was a long, not always fun process and I chose to divide my report in three parts. Part 1 is the review of the resin model kit and you can read it now on my blog, in case you are interested.

Next week I will show you how I enhanced/modified/pimped the building. Smile

My massive order from Tabletop World arrived last Friday. Now these houses will keep me busy for some time:



Here is a glimpse of what the eventual Gierburg table might look like (imagine some market stands in the middle, cobblestone streets, civilians everywhere, ...):

Now that looks good! I'm actually a bit green with envy right now...

They should work really well with your own terrain, which, by the way, is nothing short of stunning...

Also quite curious to see your pimped mansion.

I'll be back...

True indeed, your scrap buildings are just as impressive as the ones you bought! I'm eager to see more pictures of the finished results of your own stuff!

Every time I look at this thread, I want to shout obscenities. (That's a compliment, though.)

Nice work, all around.
