Warhammer Cottage No.

I’ve been busy working on my second cottage model. Just like the first one it’s now ready for painting and basing. Changed a couple of things on this one. Most obvious is the rendered chimney. I wanted to do it a little differently to the bare stone of the first model and also do something a little quicker. I made the exposed stones the same way as before, placing them in patches and then using my filler mix to cover the rest of the chimney. The roof tiles are a little smaller this time too. I went for 7mm square tiles over the 8mm ones. I think they look a little better and not quite as big. They were tricky to keep alternating evenly though and I had to trim a lot to fit. Not a problem really on a roof that needs to look rustic but could be an issue on other models.

I also got a little carried away and printed out plans for the next building in the series, the small town house from WD131. Ended up cutting out parts for two houses so I can try a different wall infill on one.

For now though I think I should put some thought into how to paint the first two models before getting too far along with these. It’s very addictive making these though.

Waiting for more varnish to arrive before I post pics…

Waiting for more varnish to arrive before I post pics of recent models but I have made a start on my warhammer cottage roof at last. Had to wait for the cereal packet to become available so I could cut it up for roof tiles. It’s like being a kid again! Got a little more done on the second cottage too. Just need to finish detailing the door before moving onto the chimney.

I’ve still been working on my Warhammer cottage.

I’ve still been working on my Warhammer cottage. It’s taken a while but the chimney is pretty much finished. The bit of plastic brush protector that’s currently acting as the chimney pot will get wrapped in putty and made to look more ‘rustic’. Roof in place. Tricky to fit it as the templates were a bit big so needed cutting down and with the walls being ever so slightly skewed in places it needed fudging here and there. Whilst working on the chimney I got all over keen and started another cottage!

This is taking ages….

This is taking ages…. I’ve been building up the stonework on the chimney little by little over the past couple of days. It’s slow going as it is but I also don’t want to risk buggering up areas that are still soft. It’s quite relaxing though and a nice change from feeling like I should paint something.

I had originally planned to use DAS but it turned out to really not be suitable. I didn’t like the texture of the stuff and it wouldn’t stick to anything. No idea how you’re supposed to make anything out of that crap. So greenstuff it is.

Initially I was a bit worried that the stones were a little small. I tried to make them of a size that would look like they were easily lifted by hand so no massive blocks better suited to castle walls. As more has been done though I think they look ok.
