Thanks.

The roof tiles are from http://www.builders-in-scale.com/

http://www.builders-in-scale.com/bis/parts-shingles.html

I use Part #804 (S) - TrueWood "Rustic" Strip Shingles, OAK

They're pretty expensive, but for my first model I spent about three weeks (and several fingers) carving up hundreds of tiny plastic tiles only to give up when it was still only half done. So for me, I'd pay twice that for the ease and convenience.

I totally relate to the pain and suffering! Smile

How big are those sheets, by the way?

The sheets are about 27cm * 12.5 cm. it says they cover up to 32 sq. inches, which I guess is about 200 cm2.

A small building wouldn't take so much, of course, but I used about 9 sheets on those two modules, coz they are so huge. So that gets pretty expensive, but as I said, for me, well worth it.

I think people here have got a more warhammery effect by using cut up card, etc. If you go for that exaggerated warhammer feel then that would be good, but if you want a roof tile that is more to scale, then each tile would be only a few mm wide, so that would be a real pain to cut up.

Great work on the new buildings, though I would love to see more photos.

I saw the product on the internet but I havent't found the dimension of this...
#804 Truewood Rustic Shingles, OAK $9.98 ... $9.98... for how many cm² ?

I haven't measured to see how much I do actually get with the spacing I use, though.
