LOVE IT! Great work hunter, nice painting, and the woodworks are very promising, i also use a brass brush to get some structure on them.

Tada...
I bought a wire brush yesterday...
My wife and I drove past a hardware store and she said : "Let's go inside. I know, you can't wait to get a wire brush."
Very Happy

The first attempts weren't very satisfying. Maybe because they only had those "normal big" ones. So I tried it with a rough little stone and a saw. But even then it didn't look like I expected.
So I think I have to practice a little bit before I need the next beams for the next house.

Hello!!
A little update from me.
Already in december I completed adding all the planks on the roof.
Then in january I added the shingles on one side.
The shingles for the other side are in process right now.
For the color I wanted a grey with a little touch of blue. (Like it seems on the third picture...)
But somehow it became greenish. (As you can see on the fourth picture...)
However, I like it.

And still there is no dirt on the whole house...

Right now I am currently working rather rare on this house, because at Christmas I got a Proxxon Hot Wire Cutter!!
And of course I directly had to start with the next house to test it.
So far I'm very impressed.
It easily cuts through thick plates, the cutted sides are smooth and also curves and angles are no problem.
Even the adherent layer on my plates can be removed with a very thin cut.
Great device!!

LOOKIN' GOOD! I dry brush my tiles/shingles with a lighter shade to highlight the edges of the tiles/shingles; it makes each tile/shingle stand out. You might give it a try. That aside, GREAT WORK!   thumbsup

I surely will!! 
After the other side is finished, I will drybrush the whole roof and then add some dirt and weathering...

Yes... Far too clean...
But I will definitely change that! Wink

So...
The House is finished!
I think... Rolling Eyes
But maybe somebody has still improvement suggestions... Wink
Anyhow I am satisfied with the result.

What I will change definitely, is that I will add more dirt at the base, when it has its final place on the board.

Does anyone know, if there's a problem, that I used a poster out of an Town Cryer?
If so, I could make it a little blurry.

It turned out SPLENDIDLY. I particularly like the supporting beams. OUTSTANDING WORK!   thumbsup
I think the reproducing images from the T.C. for your own use is permissible, but do't try to sell sheets of them on-line.   What a Face

Time for another update...
Quite a few pictures.

As some of you adviced me before, all beams and planks out of real wood have been treated with my wire brush.

I totally forgot to Take WIP-Pictures of my second house...
So I can only show you the painted state.








The next house is one of a blacksmith.
(The chimney on the outside will be changed, because I really don't like the top of it...)








Here is the beginning of a fountain.
It should used for the scenario "The pool".


Next is a chapel for my graveyard.
Each wall is made out of three single layers.

Very cool work there Dragonhunter!  The painted building looks amazing.  Great colors!  The WIP shots really show how your technique has advanced.

These are looking brilliant. I really like using foam for wood, block, and plaster, it's such a time saver. Keep up the good work.

I added the beams for the top of the "tower".
They are still removable at the moment.
