That's a nice start. Surprisingly the various manufacturor's kits seem to blend in well.  With the appropriate paintjob any minor discrepancies will fade away completely.

Looking forward to seeing more of it.

Yes , itís always a compromise between footprint on the table and the aesthetics of the buildings . In this case I think you,ve got it just right. Keep posting your progress with this one , please . 🏰

I expect that will quite impressive when finished.  However!  You are going to need an impressive Lucretia "McEvil" Borgia to do it justice!   ;)

Some progress this week. The roof tiles have been base coated with Foundry Madder Red and the walls have had a basecoat of Golden Brown, a heavy drybrush of Fawn and a lighter drybrushing with Antique White ~

As ever there is more on my blog~

The project moves forward, the final drybrushing after an all over wash, and tidying up of the roof tiles ~
