As suggested by Pochi on her Cottage WIP, I'm starting this new topic today to show you my progress on building my little world. I'll be assembling, converting and painting buildings a scenery to edify my own country side village.

 

I've been eyeing Tabletop World products for a while and recently desided to go for it and placed my first order. I'll launch my WIP with the Water Well since I already started assembling it and primed it. I think it's the perfect piece to start with. It's easy to assemble and any village needs a good source of fresh water to survive and flourish.

 

Like I said, I already started to assemble it. The Water Weel comes in six parts. Here, I've assembled the otw side posts and the rotating rope beam to the stone well. Just like Pochi and Tiniest rhombus in is WIP, I chose to use white primer to obtain brighter colors when I'll start painting. There wasn't much if any mold lines at all on the parts, so I simply cleaned everything to make sure that all the mold release product was washed.

I didn't realize it came unassembled. That's cool. Might make some parts easier to paint before adding the roof.

Yes, it comes in six part, it is easy to assemble and really makes the painting process much easier.

 

I finally decided to go with the realistic color scheme. For the wooden parts will I'll mainly be using 9028 Muddy Brown,  9030 Leather Brown and 9031 Tanned Leather. For the stones I'll be using 9660 Powderburn Brown which is a "Promo Color" and various tones of Grey; 09251 Disky Skin, 9086 Stone Grey, 9293 Alien Flesh, 9274 Vampiric Shadow and 9275 Vapiric Skin. I will add color on some of the stones too.

 

So, I started basecoating all the wooden parts with 9028 Muddy Brown and the stones with 9660 Powderburn Brown. I thinned down the paint with 1 part of water for 4 parts of paint to make sure the paint will flow in all the cracks. Even if I need to apply two layers of paint to get an even basecoat, I prefer this techinque as I find it much faster to cover bigger surface and it helps keeping all the texture details.

Ok, so I apply another layer of diluted 9660 Powderburn Brown before starting building up the grey tones.

Then, I brushed a layer of 9086, Stone Grey over all the stones. At this stage, I'm using a 9mm (0.35 inch) wide brush.

It looks rough for now, but I'm confident that it will get better.

To avoid getting a monotonous grey, I alternated by painting some stone in 9251 Dusky Skin color. Here, I used a smaller brush not to touch adjacent stones. I then mixed 9293 Alien Flesh, 9280 Nightmare Black and 9251 Dusky Skin and painted some other stones in a bluish grey color.

The cracks between the stone were not dark enoght to my taste. I wanted to add more shading, so I applied a layer of Citadel Agrax Earthshade all over the stones.

Then, I applied a 9086, Stone Grey drybrush and re-highlighted the darker and bluish stones.

596ad7c030aa4_WaterWell22.jpg.a7c7c38cd82bee019bb21a667e2226aa.jpg

 

Finally, I applied a 9293 Alien Flesh drybrush on all the stones and a light 9031 Tanned Leather on some spots. I think it looks nice like that, so I will move forward and paint the wooden parts.

Hello everyone, after an amazing Reaper Virtual Expo, I decided to get back to work on my Tabletop World Water Well and resurrect this post. I took thirteen classes over the weekend and learned some very interesting way to improve my skills. I did not take step by step pictures during my recent progress, so I will do my best to explain what I did.

 

My main goal was to add weathering effect on the well lid and wood. I painted the lid using the non metallic metal (nmm) technique and then added the verdigris effect. For the copper nmm I used 09030 Leather Brown, 09031 Tanned Leather, 29825 Tusk Ivory and 09039 Pure White. Then, for the verdigris I used a blend of 29848 Jungle Camo, 09294 Alien Goo and 09282 Maggot White.

 

I also added rust effect on the metal parts as well as rust stains on the wood (below the nails mainly). I finally added shading 09255 Black Wash on some areas to give more contrast to the wooden beams and shingles.

 

I am now considering adding water effect in the bucket and a vine growing alongside the beam on the opposite side of the crank wheel. I also need to added moss between the shingles and the stone slabs.

 

Let me know what you think. And for those of you who are interested, Tabletop World are hosting their annual painting contest, ending May 1. Visit their Website for more details.

      Hey everyone, here are pictures of the Tabletop world Cottage I painted this week. I painted it mostly with Reaper MSP paint.
       
      The stones were painted with 9088 Stormy Grey and 9089 Cloudy Grey. The shingles were painted with 09028 Muddy Brown, 09030 Leather Brown, 09031 Tanned Leather and 29825 Tusk Ivory. I also added rust effect on the metal parts using 09028 Muddy Brown and 09469 Fireball Orange. I finally added shading with a 09255 Black Wash on some areas to give more contrast to the stones and shingles.

      Hello everyone, here's my latest work. Tabletop World Grain Supplies painted with Reaper Miniatures MSP paint. Now I really need a better backdrop.

      Hey everyone, it's been a while since I posted. I was working on a large model. I painted this terrain piece mainly with Reaper MSP paint.
       
      The stones were painted with 9088 Stormy Grey and 9089 Cloudy Grey. For the non-metallic metal (NMM) copper on the roof, I used 09030 Leather Brown, 09031 Tanned Leather, 29825 Tusk Ivory and 09039 Pure White. Then, for the verdigris I used a blend of 29848 Jungle Camo, 09294 Alien Goo and 09282 Maggot White. The shingles were painted with 09028 Muddy Brown, 09030 Leather Brown, 09031 Tanned Leather and 29825 Tusk Ivory. I also added rust effect on the metal parts using 09028 Muddy Brown and 09469 Fireball Orange. I finally added shading with a 09255 Black Wash on some areas to give more contrast to the stones and shingles.
       
      This Windmill is the second Tabletop World I paint for the hamlet I'm building. I painted it in the same fashion as the Water Well I did two months ago. I will build a base for the windmill later.
      If you look carefully, you'll see I added six decorative anchor plates on the windmill wall. I designed these structural reinforcements in Inventor software, prepared a program in Chitubox and printed them on my new resin 3D printer. I broke one of them when I removed it from the print supports but I think it’s even more interesting and realistic this way. As you can see on the last pictures, the anchor plates are about 14mm long and only 2mm think.
       
      Have a great weekend!

      Hello everyone, something different this time. I just completed a Tabletop World Water Well. Like I mentioned in the WIP, my main goal was to add weathering effect on the well lid and wood. I painted the lid using the non metallic metal (nmm) technique and then added the verdigris effect. For the copper nmm I used 09030 Leather Brown, 09031 Tanned Leather, 29825 Tusk Ivory and 09039 Pure White.

      I also added rust effect on the metal parts as well as rust stains on the wood (below the nails mainly). I finally added shading 09255 Black Wash on some areas to give more contrast to the wooden beams and shingles. Although it doesn’t really show much, I added water effect in the bucket. I may need to add an additional drop. I also added the vine growing alongside the beam on the opposite side of the crank wheel, moss between the shingles and various other plants and flowers.
