All righty then - a new thread for some new stuff.

I will post some pictures here of the scenery that is done.

The first post is the library (as seen in my WIP-section) - I tried taking the pictures without flash but with more regular light. The pictures are not that good, but I figure that the flash ruins to much of the shades and to much of the feel.

Top view (with flash)


Front view - the roof above the entrance is removable



Back view



Window shot


Lets here the verdicts :magister:

That's great man. I really like that window shot, and I can't tell why. I think it's that empty bookshelf with one or two books scattered around. Just great.

I think that'll be a very useful piece of scenery. I think it's too much of an archer's haven for me, but it looks pretty playable.

Can minis stand on the stairs?

I like the idea to this a lot... though it seems a bit empty for a library... even a burnt out one...
maybe think about adding a couple more bookshelves in the center? (to form small alleyways of shelves, perfect for ambushes and climbing to the higher floor)

But I love the scattered books, they bring a great feel to it!

VERY WELL DONE! thumbsup

I like it JUST the way it is. That said, one of the wonderful things about terrain pieces, & large models, like ships et al, IS that they are NEVER really done; i.e., there's ALWAYS some cool little thingy to add to the beast. God, but this is a WONDERFUL hobby! Suspect thumbsup

PostSubject: Finished Windmill   Mon 5 Jan 2009 - 15:46

It was 9 years in the making (seriously - I started something like 9 years ago - just never got around to finishing it Smile) and without any further comments:
Front

Leftovers of an missile fight

Crashed cart and missile fight

Crashed Cart

Entrance (and small rat on the third floor - a bit out of focus)

Back


Thats it and thats that - I am definately open for criticism (as you can always improve your skills) study

Next project - hmmmm - finish the gallows and start on the town hall square Razz

I would tend to agree with the others that the attention to detail transform your pieces from fine models into JAW DROPPING GREAT STUFF! I still LOVE the Rat in the Barrel. As always VERY WELL DONE! thumbsup

Love them both! But the library looks like a shooter's dream, depends on what's next-door though. Very Happy And is the windmill for EiF or standard?

Where do you get Zap Kicker in the spray bottle anymore? I can only find it in a crappy aerosol can!

Nice looking gibbet and accessories!

You can get Zap Kicker in the bottle from www.micromark.com , catalog #80885. Sir, yes sir!

Back on subject: VERY NICE! Ahah, another little Bro Rat lurking beneath the Gallows. VERY COOL STUFF in a morbid sort of way. The Baptimal Font is a interesting piece; perhaps it's time I actually looked at the LotR stuff. VERY WELL DONE! thumbsup

I dig the windmill, top notch job! Is that a speaker in the backround or a motor to make it spin?

Awesome chopblock as well! I like the blood smeared down the stairs.

PostSubject: Tabletopworld update   Sat 8 Aug 2009 - 7:40

OK - As I mentioned in the tabletopworld post, I received a package from them a few weeks ago.

I have finished with the tower (Actually the flag om top of the roof is not quite done, but what the heck) - the pics are a little bad (flash - not normal lighting).

I am still thinking a bit about cutting up the tower a little bit, and turning it into a ruin. At the moment its not very playable in Mordheim. It needs a huge ladder og bridge from another building to access the top.

Anyway here are the pics:
First without the roof (this is the way I will play it in Mordheim)


With roof



Let me know what you think - should I cut it up or not? - perhaps I should set up a vote scratch

It's MUCH TOO COOL to cut up. You could make a ruined section of wall as a means of egress. At any rate, you did a FINE job. The weathered feel to the woodwork is a VERY NICE touch. VERY WELL DONE! thumbsup

PostSubject: More updates   Sat 8 Aug 2009 - 12:11

While I am at it, I might as well post a few more pictures (lots of stuff getting done today) - Again the pictures have been taken with flash, which is far from optimal.

Its the townsquare from Tabletopworld - nothing fancy here - and ancient ruins from GW (they were cheap).

First is the ancient ruins


Then a couple of groupshots



The townsquare is quite nice, but I honestly don't like the ancient ruins - the lines where they are clicked and glued together are quite visible and would have required lost of greenstuffing or filling and sanding - I couldn't be bothered to do that, it was plainly to much work (and they dont fit that well into Mordheim (BtB perhaps - but I don't play that).

Let me hear your thoughts.

The Forgeworld barn is on its way - just needs matt coat, some flock and static grass.

Until you mentioned the unseemly seams I hadn't noticed them. I don't think I'd bother with them either, at leasr not with GS. If they REALLY prove annoying, I'd carve some cracks generating outward from them. Suspect
The Town Square looks TERRIFIC. GOOD JOB THERE! thumbsup

Very nice work on the Tower and the Square!
It's a shame dough that you used flash when taking pictures. It makes the lighting unnatural and colors a bit distorted.
Other then that, very good work! Wink

Cheers!
