Hello folks. I have been lurking here for a while and thought I would try posting some pics of my first two buildings. This is the first pics I have ever posted on any forum so Please tell me how it looks , if it's to big or any other info. Thank you and feedback always welcome.


This burned out Inn was just painted black then drybrushed with a dark brown then grey and white . I was really suprised at how well it looks textured after it was done.

The texture on this house is done with the PVA toilet paper method . I think it turned out great but it was kinda a pain to work with.

Thanks. I wanted something a little different since it's supposed to be a burned out inn so I used a Hirst Arts door and cut the frame to match. It was kind of an after thought , next time I will cut the opening in the wall big enough for the frame to continue to the inside

Very nice looking building. I really like how the interrior flors came out.

The door is also a nice touch, gives the building just enough extra character.

Here are some WIP pics of a pool I started. I have seen a pool with a body floating in it , can't remember if it was here or somewhere else , and thought it was a great idea for scenery.

It is made of old Hirst Arts blocks I had torn apart from a failed dungeon project. I didn't read Bruce's tutorial on pouring plaster in the middle of a project like this and wish I had. I didn't wet it down before pouring and it hardened up quickly. That is why there is PVA glue in the corners to fill the voids there.

I hope it turns out good , this is my first attempt at useing Woodland Scenics realistic water product or any water product for that matter.

I first saw it used on this site http://www.miniwargaming.com/ for a meteor blast terrain piece where they waded TP up and soaked it with watered down glue to make "humped up" earth.
Basically I painted the walls with watered down PVA glue then layed torn sheets of TP over that and smoothed it somewhat with an old paint brush. It makes a very nice wrinkled old plaster look.

On Woodland Scenics water products... the best advice I can give is to be extremely patient and follow the instructions to the letter. Resist the urge to pour in lots all at once. Pour 1/8th" at a time. Let it dry someplace where there isn't a lot of free-floating dust. Let it dry at least 24 hours in between each thin layer.

Well here is the finished pool. It turned out ok but not like I thought it would. It looks good from a bit of a distance but up close it doesn't look natural enough for me.

I'm going to do some test pieces this coming weekend , which I should have done before jumping in head first , and see if I can come up with a different way to get the effect I'm looking for.

I really like the body floating in the pool. A bit grotesque but very in character. I might have to try something similar with a fountain in the future... So many things to do!

I really love the fountain. I started building one myself today I was so excited by yours! I built it quite differently though. I'll post it in another thread when I am finished. Thanks for the inspiration!

I thought I would post an update of what I am sloooowly working on now. I decided to start makeing some game board pieces so I can get more of an idea of how I will design the rest of my buildings.

On the hill top I am going to make a grave yard piece and a ruined house so I can swap them out for variety. As an after thought I am also going to cut an area out of the hill to build a catacomb beneath whichever is set up on top. Painting the river section and getting it to look realistic is going to be my biggest challenge. If anyone has any suggestions , links or tutorials that can help please let me know.

The sections are 2'x2' and I still have 4 more sections to use. I am thinking of useing 2 as river sections and 2 as raised sections , probably 3 inches taller than the " standard " pieces which are just half inch foam.

Dozer I think the fountain looks great. The only thing I could add is maybe some ripples around the body using Water Effects. I like how the 2 x 2 sections are turning out.

VERY NICE! I LOVE the staircase/bridge leading up the hill...the Gothic style would lend itself to your Death Squad games also. I'm working on Geo-Hex tiles at the moment, SO...I can appreciate the "SLOWLY" part of the equation. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK! thumbsup

Here are some progress shots of the game board. I used spray adhesive for the flocking so I could control where it went and it worked out pretty good. I wasn't crazy about the shade of green at first but after spraying a section with a matte clear coat it darkened and dulled down. The dirt also looks better after the matte finish. I only had enough in the can to do 1 section so I didn't bother takeing a picture of it yet.

Next will be getting the bridge painted and some rocks and water in the river bed.

VERY NICE PROGRESS! Even at this stage, I can see Bands of Warriors & other miscreants wander over it...of course at this time of day I see a lot of things that aren't really there Suspect . The colors are nicely subdued. Keep up the GOOD WORK! thumbsup

Thanks very much for the comments, it is greatly appreciated. Hopefully I can find the time this weekend to finish the bridge and the water effect.
