Medieval/Pirate/Fantasy buildings completed.

I finished the buildings I was working on a few weeks ago.  Also finished a farm house and a barn.  I really need to make a few that are not quite so Conflix-like but these are easy to do and quite cathartic to work on.

First off – a farmhouse and barn. When I took the photos I realised I had not painted the door of the farmhouse. D’oh!

The gate house building. Not sure what to call it.

The Tavern/Inn building. I quite like this one even if it is pretty impractical as a structure. The balcony just holds a couple of 25mm round bases.

Now I really have to get back to painting Napoleonics. I have three units in various stages of preparation looking at me with accusing lead eyes.

WIP – More work on medieval/fantasy/pirate buildings

Finished the build stage on two more ‘Conflix’ like buildings. I was all set to undercoat them but my one can of matt black spray paint ran out of propellant.  The damn thing was half full of paint as well. It is a brand I use a lot and have never had a problem with.  The one problem with living a long way from town is that you can’t just whip down to the store to get something if you run out so it looks like I  will be painting them next week when I am away for work.

Construction was foamcore board, balsa, some bits and bobs from the scratch-building bucket and card. Lots and lots of card. Maybe I should use teddy bear fur and do thatching instead of tiling.
