Fair enough. They look fantastic as is, so more power to you if you can keep going at it.

I'm going to be doing my own boards in 60mm scale anyway, so I'll likely just use the Lemax cobblestone mats and paint those.  :)

Thanks again fellas  :)

Looking forward to seeing that as I'm loving your project  8)

the brass tube is a great concept!

Alas, it's not mine, it's probably been around for years and years. I got it from the afv modelers.

Of course. Go far back enough some bronze age modeller will claim they learned it from some stone age fucker. That's not the important bit, it's how you implement it. :)

Well, got some figures painted and another building well on the way.

The figures are a mix but mainly Foundry, the copper and merchant I've had for ages but had them rebased. Apologies for the slightly blurred photos.


And a little scene setting  :)




I've added a lasered manhole cover to the road surface and although I've got a decent manure representation (see figure bases) I'm still being a pedant about putting it on. I suppose I'll start with a bit, see if I like it and if so I'll add more.


Here is the final building for this particular tile, a warehouse or tenement/poor house etc. Still the roof, limited internals and external details like drainpipes, steps etc but it' not far off. I'm also quite pleased with the London stock colour as it's a bit different from the terrace house. The space in the top left is for a projecting winch that'll be contained in a clapboard protrusion.
