Tiniest paints a little stone cottage, windmill and well

Looks like your paint is too white and blue, you could use a Reaper MSP Linen White (maybe with a very slight touch of golden blonde) with a light reddish brown wash in the folds to emulate the picture.

The paint used were linen white, Terran khaki, golden brown and citadel seraphim sepia. So...lol. I think maybe I need to base coat it again but with the golden brown instead of the Terran khaki then go from there. Thanks!

 

That is if the cat wil let me.

The Mill in the picture looks like it has more ivory creamy cloth to me.

 

Linen white is fine, but i think it needs more cream, maybe some of the Bone colours will help you out here?

 

*** looks at last pic. Ok, forget it, stop painting and pet that cat!***

Always the most important thing in the world. At least in the opinion of the cat.

 Well Owens back over it with golden brown a am currently highlighting up to linen white. That seems to be working.

Naughty kitty, none of the others get up on that table.

Hello Tiniest Rhombus,

 

I just viewed your stone cottage work pages.  I think that you did an outstanding job on that building.  I love the stone color variations...clearly evident but still subtle enouigh in your approach and execution. I think you did an outstanding job!

 

Your wood grain work is nicely done...I feel that it could use a little lighter hilite (reddish tan) for a little more separation from the stone.

 

Roof planks look very nice...again I feel that you could use selected area weathering hilites...although the planks are all the same...weathering would still be varied in selected areas for any number of varied reasons.

 

I think you did an outstanding job on this structure overall.

 

ONE THING I DID NOT SEE...nowhere on the leading roof edges or on the roof center crest...the touch of bird droppings.

Hello Xherman 1964,

 

I'm back...a post here and there as I catch up on all I have missed.  I am good, maybe not like I was before...but still good.  Thank you for asking.

One thing I noticed is that the frames on the vanes in the picture are mostly hidden and a light red wood color. Your vanes have all their wood exposed and are a grayish dark wood color. With your cloth next to that, it may be hard for the eye to register a match even if you nail the cloth color perfectly.

  Oh my goodness! Hello! So amazing to see you back!

Thank you for the feedback. I still need to go back over the roof. I will be rusting up the nails with some rust stains, dirt and the like. I planned on doing all the weathering after I finished the other pieces so I could do it all at once. Bird droppings is inspired though, I will add that to the plans. The wood can be reworked as well.

Hmmm, I'm feeling a bit dense at the moment. Please explain further, like I'm 5. ;-)

Your advice for Tiniest is really good, I would never have thought of bird droppings, either.  Tiniest, the building already looks great, but if you can pull the bird droppings and varied weathering off...  You will have a centerpiece, not just a piece of terrain.

 

I'm also very happy to see you back, Paul.  Thank you for confirming you are well again.

      Translucent blue 77310, Water Weird, Dark Heaven Bones sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.          
    • By SisterMaryNapalm
      Hello everyone,
       
       
      I’ve been asking myself if this is the right place, but as this project has been the one that kept me busy for most of my recent time and is very dear to me, I would like to present it to you.
       
       
      The whole idea to this was born during the time when I nearly stopped painting miniatures and doing wargaming.
      I had some pretty bad experiences with some guys and communities in Germany and my overall motivation to do some painting and building stuff was down to almost none. I even stopped writing which normally is my preferred method of relaxing. In short: A midlife miniature crisis.
       
       
      Read some more about the background over here:
       
       
      Gallia to Arms - original blog entry
       
       
      During that time a friend of mine bought the miniature kit of the Edelweiß tank that became available just then and later also purchased the kit of the Shamrock tank. That was the moment I decided to also make a small miniature project within the world of Valkyria Chronicles which I had known and liked since I first came to know the original game (or rather … its soundtrack).
       
       
      I had a lot of 20mm figures left and some 1/72 scale tanks, which I figured to be perfect for my plan to recreate the equipment and figures of the game in small scale. They don’t need much space, are easily convertible and they don’t cost as much as 28mm figures and vehicles.
       
       
      As some of my friends continued to do wargaming on WWII and I had so much stuff left, I soon decided to create a small force of Gallian troops for WWII skirmish games. Unfortunately it turned out that the game rules they were using rendered the Valkyria Chronicles scenario almost useless (due to balancing issues).
      So I continued creating models just for fun, using the whole anime scenario to set up the amusing story of a guy doing weird stuff.
       
       
      It somehow got out of hand …
       
       
      My little builds caught the attention of some guys organizing an annual local tabletop event called “Do or Dice” – and they asked me if I’d like to present some of my miniatures.
      I thought – wow – what an honor – but … it’s a tabletop event, not a miniature showcase event. So … hm. What to do?
       
      Right! Create an own scenario.
       
       
      Luckily I had acquired some left-over scale train terrain from my late uncle – and there were two grass mats measuring 100cm x 70cm.
       
       
      Perfect for a small skirmish game. Reason enough for me to tackle that challenge.
       
       
      Fortunately I’ve like 8 month or so left.
       
       
      Well then – Let’s Make … Gallia to Arms!
       

       
       
       
      Creating a scenario set in the Valkyria Chronicles universe requires certain elements.
      As I plan to use this thread as the main thread and create threads for the single elements of the game – Gallian Forces, Imperial Forces and Terrain – consider this as some kind of register for the different threads. I will frequently update the different sections, so stay tuned.

      What do we need?
       
      Gallian Forces

       
      Gallian Army WIP Thread
       
       
      Imperial Forces

       
       
      Terrain

       
      Terrain WIP
       
      Game rules and scenario setup

       
      Game supplies

       
       
      Well then
       
      Let’s make this:
       

       
      Into this:



       
      Or at least something that looks like it …

      My girl and me like to hike, stroll, walk...
       
      We often follow trails that lead through rural areas, nature, forest or historical sites.
      I would like to share a few pics, so I can show you what the Netherlands look like aside from the big cities and harbour.
      Yes...we do have tulips and windmills...but not everywhere.
       
      I hope you guys and girls and creatures like it.
      These were made today, due to Liberation Day I had the day off ( not everyone has a free day but the Military does).
       
      An Anthill, A Windmill and Tulips, some nice mushrooms attached to a tree and a statue of BACON.

      So here is my version of The Well of Chaos:
       

       
      some close ups:
       

       
      The water effect crept up the sides due to surface tension, but not enough for me to worry...

      Thoughts and comments welcome!
