James, I wonder why you built this from cardboard as that's not among your standard materials so far. I know that architectural modelling quite often uses good cardboard to build from , but are there any other reasons you used it or was it just at hand when you start? This material tends to warp easily when using plaster or a wet colour mix on it (which you didn't), but it's easy to work with on the other hand.

Thanks all  :)

I quite like the ease of being able to make the shapes and long walls slightly wonky, gives it a sense of realism  :)

So, gatehouse is done (apart from the gate) and the outer walls have begun. Different from the first iteration as I wasnít entirely happy with the way they looked. These new ones will be given a similar treatment as the Norman hall.






Just left now are the outer walls and the groundwork  :)

Awesome! Now you need to make some more outbuildings to go with it... Where is the lord of the manor going to keep his horses? You need stables!

James
thats looks very tasty and suitably impressive!
Love the gatehouse - are outer walls going to have stonework or rendered?

It is coming out very impressive!
Eager to see how you'll finish the walls, will there be any walkway?
I'm also sure you're going to spice the yard with some cute little thingies  ;)

Many thanks gents  :)

You need stables!

Ah! I knew I forgot something  :)

are outer walls going to have stonework or rendered?

Rendered the same as the Norman hall but a slightly different colour.

Eager to see how you'll finish the walls, will there be any walkway?

Maybe. Thereís plenty of precedence not to have a walkway though and yes, there will be lots of little details for the eye to soak up  :)

Iíve got them everywhere  lol
