Michael's, Robert's, Ben Franklin, and Hobby Lobby here in the states. Overseas, I'm not sure where they sell them. Here is there online store. They come in great big 2oz and 4oz bottles, which tend to last a lifetime.

I guess they are tons cheaper than Citadel colours and that's something I do need when painting lots of scenery. Thanks for the link!

Oh yeah, loads cheaper. I discovered them after painting a terrain piece with Citadel Colour... I went through 4 pots of Scorched Brown, and while complaining to the guy at the LGS, he suggested them to me for terrain.

Wow thets some clas A painting! It looks really realistic. If you want to make it a little bit more weatherd you should try dry brushing, catachen green and camo green (I know how this sounds, but if you do this really subtle it will look realistic Wink ) at the bottom end of your building. you could also make these paints really watery and make some drippings along the walls on sertain points (the faces on the for example).
PS I really like those pirate models, maby i'm gonna buy some for myself some day... (to much cool models, too little time)

Thank you, guys!

There are still a few extra things I have planned so I can't reveal it all just yet. However, it's coming very soon.

Well, I didn't build this house (see first post). And for the pirate (and his comrades) you need to go here.

It will be a kind of collection of little tutorials since I will be dealing with everything: timber, walls, brickwork, roof and the goodies you haven't even seen yet.

About the size: the stories are 6cm (1st) and 5cm (other two) high.

This piece is AWESOME, and your painting is an honour for my eyes ! Razz
Can I make just one critic? I find the blue you used for the windows too "flashy", I think it need some grey to be more realistic. Embarassed

Yes, sometimes I do think the same. Other times I don't. I will see about chaning the mixtures for the next building with solid windows. Smile

I will patiently wait for your next building Wink

For the finished inn you will have to wait until early March because I will buy some ivy on the Tactica wargames convention in Hamburg. However, I have already started working on the next building: the Governor's Mansion from Resina Planet.

Here's a copy-paste of some extracts of a review that I will be posting on my blog:

I ordered the house directly from Resina Planet (81,41 + 15,00 shipping) and it arrived one week later. My first impression was mixed because on one hand I was a bit disappointed as I expected - or let's say I had hoped - that it was a bit larger. This is, however, mostly due to my own naivety as I hadn't considered that the sizes given on the Resina Planet website would, of course, factor in the platform before the front door, the top of the chimney, etc. On the other hand I was happy to see that there is nearly no assembling required as this is a 7 piece resin kit: ground floor, first floor, roof and 4 pillars.






There are two things that I don't like about the building from a design point of view. Firstly, how is one expected to get from the ground floor to the first floor? There is no place where a stairway could be fitted into the house. The same is true for the second floor/roof level which, if you look at it from the outside, is clearly intended to be a kind of attic. I can live with that, though, but the missing stairs from the ground to the first floor are really bugging me.



The second thing that I find really annoying are the completely unnecessary and horrible looking plants on the walls. They don't look like anything that I would want to see on my gaming table. I didn't take photos of the original walls but you can get an idea from this photo (from the Resina Planet Gallery section).



I had already accepted that I would have to make sure that I cover them up completely with proper vegetation later as part of the finishing touches, when I decided to try and remove them. So I took a nipper, file and modelling knife and after lots of filing and cutting (more than you would want to do for a building of this price category) I ended up with this:



I think the walls turned out okay - definately much better than I had expected at first. I was mostly able to restore the brickwork and timber. I would have to see what it looks like after painting and I can always cover it with ivy.
