Thanks for your comments everyone, I'm happy you like it and find it inspiring. I own many other Tabletop World buildings and hope to find time to paint them and build a nice little village soon. I was asked how I made the vine and I thought some of you might be interested in knowing.

 

I made the Clematis climbing plant myself with the roots of a spirea shrubs and Woodland scenics Fine-Leaf Foliage. I glued the purple flowers one by one after the vine was in place. Spirea bush tend to spread and since mine was getting to big, I decided to remove some of it from my backyard two years ago. As I was doing so I realised the roots would make very nice miniature trees, so I decided to clean and dry them for future use. I now have a small box full of it and even after two years they are still flexible. They are easy to twist and glue. I used super glue to fix them to the base and white glue to fix the foliage.

 

I also used The Army Painter Field Grass and Green Stuff World Shrubs Tufts on the base. I painted some of the Shrubs Tufts leaves in yellow and white so that they will look like flowers.

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

      Hello everyone, now that the event is over, here are some more pictures of my entry in the 17th Quarterly contest. A big thanks to everybody that voted for me. This is a 77752, Female Minotaur sculpted by Jason Wiebe. It was a fun model to work on and I challenged myself painting object source lighting (OSL) on it. I made the fire with pieces of popsicle stick and Liquitex heavy gel medium.

      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!
