Tiniest paints a little stone cottage, windmill and well

Recommended Posts

 

shingles look great, but the cottage owner really could stand to hire a decent roofer.

Its been a rough year, okay?  ::(:  ::P:

 

 

Yeah ! Fix my roof!!!

 

It's dripping inside...Grumble

Oh boy, it's been awhile! I haven't been around much but I have been painting. Missed your faces.

 

Finished up the little cottage, took pics...realized I forgot to rust up the little nails. I'll get around to that next time round. The sides are closer to the real life colors. I'll take better pics when they are all done and ready for the show off thread. Comments and suggestions always welcome. Thanks for looking!

Oh boy is it fantastic to get back to the painting desk. I started these awhile ago but everything got put on hold while we rearranged the entire condo. Now I have a dedicated hobby room and it's so organized and pretty. :wub:

 

Usually, I'd share my process in these WIP but I don't remember what I did it's been so long. Last night I painted the brick in clotted red, a dry brush of linen white, then a wash of muddy soil, then another dry rush of linen white. I wanted the brick to look old. I think I need a bit more work on it but for now I'm moving on.

 

The wood parts got a base coat of muddy soil.

 

The roof got a basecoat of a muddy soil, linen white mix. I'll be painting the roof to look like the cottages roof. Why muddy soil and linen white? Cause it's what I had on my pallete and the two make a nice grey.

 

Comments and advice always welcome. Thanks for looking.

The cottage looks great; nice work!

 

I was wondering what the building off to the left side of your cottage was; now I see it's a windmill. I'm looking forward  seeing that develop.

      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 …

      Used Tamiya clear blue to coat the Water Weird and Reaper paints for the well and highlights.

      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...
       
      WiP here.
       
      Thoughts and comments welcome!
