Tabletop World Manor

Recommended Posts

I am finally getting around to painting this after a few years on my shelf. I primed the bottom section grey because of all the stone, and the top sections brown because of all the wood.

Floors lift away? to reveal interior decks?

Yes! I'll take some pics of that. Meanwhile, here is level 2. The timbers on the bottom level, which I painted brown and then highlighted, do not quite match the upper floor. I think I'll have to go back and redo them to get them to match better.

      Since I first saw miniature terrain, I have wanted to build a village for my miniatures. When I saw sappet102's Gloomholde City, I was blown away! I know I am not a sculptor and can't make that nice of a village for my minis so I went on a hunt.
       
      I came across Tabletop World and their buildings had exactly the look I wanted. As my Christmas gift, my hubs said if that is I wanted, I could place an order and pick out a few. (I want them all!) I kept to a conservative amount to see what I thought. Once I received them, I was so pleased. I have not found a single mold line. I had to fill in one tiny bubble spot on the top of the cottage chimney. My only complaint is with the cottage and Townhouse I, there is no fireplace on the inside to correspond to the chimney on the outside.
       
      I ordered the Cottage, Townhouse II, and the furniture set. There was a mistake with my order so they sent out a Townhouse I for my troubles.
       
      They are having a contest on their facebook right now where people sent in their painted models. Man, some of those are amazing.
       
      Anyway, so I am going to paint up the little cottage first. I want to paint it up and then mount it on a (probably square) board and then do a little flagstone walkway, some flowers, trees, maybe a little garden. So if anyone knows where to get tiny animals like little birds, bunnies, butterflies, etc, I'd be interested. I was taught how to make paper butterflies but I haven't tried that yet.
       
      I washed the cottage with soapy water, rinsed it and let it air dry. I then primed it with spray on primer. I will be starting with the inside as to me, that just makes good sense since I will be holding it on the outside. When I get to the outside, I want to use different colored "stones" like it is found stone rather than quarried. Kind of like this picture:

      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.

      Hello all! I am a very novice beginner to miniature painting, and have only been doing it for about a year or so. I feel like my skills are leveling up pretty quickly, but still need some advice.
       
      My friend is trying to coax me into pen and paper RPGs like DnD and pathfinder, and we are currently doing a pathfinder session. To add flavor to the games and because I like to feel like I'm participating, I'm working on terrain and buildings. The first building that I'm nearing completion on is Tabletop World's Mansion.
       

       
      Because of the large size of the model (and the hope that I'll be getting more pieces, creating a city that will look like it all came from the same forest/quarry/paint shoppe) I went to various Hardware stores and bought actual high quality building/house paint. I'm a little concerned this was a bad move, since I know model paint is specifically made for small scales. The colors for the mansion were ripped from the Winchester Mystery House photos because I love the design and colors. 
       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      So the main question I have is regarding sealing. I've heard krylon matte spray can leave a sticky residue, and I want to avoid that. I was wondering what sealing spray I should use since I went with actual house paints. Because the parts where the house fits together are extremely snug, my desire is to paint on a gloss coat for the connecting parts, so when the mansion is put together/pulled apart the gloss coat will protect the paint better from rubbing off. Or will it stick together because of the gloss coat? Looking for advice on that. 
       

       

       
      Finally, the wood flooring I would like to look a little more aged. I'm kind of worried about adding grey or white with dry brushing but will probably end up doing that. The wood color was a brown paint I had mixed up at the hardware store, so I figured I would brush some burnt umber over it and then go with some kind of gray and then white for the aged look. 
       
      This is almost finished, I'm very much a "good enough" worker and hobbyist, and so long as it looks decent on the table I'll be happy. I could certainly obsess over the tiny details for the next 10 years, but I like my sanity. Looking for some advice on the sealing/aging wood though! 
       
      Thank you for reading my post. Sorry about the length.
