Thanks. It has been a very slow project. In the time that I've been working on this I've built three whole post apocalyptic towns in two different scales AND a huge set of sci-fi terrain. Every once in a while this one grabs my attention though.

Thanks, Ock. Fingers crossed I'll have much more to show next week.

Very nice indeed! Do you have plans to fit a ruined terrain piece in the Cathedral slot for other games?
Just remember "If the Enemy is in range, so are YOU!

Well, maybe? I'm leaving some interchangeability there for any particular terrain tile. The foundations are there for each building, but the buildings themselves can come off and be replaced. Easy thing would be to make a ruined version of each building, but maybe also just some alternate buildings too, at some point. I suppose that, in this way, the tile itself could also go from a fantasy village to a near modern refugee camp or a sci-fi outpost.

Finally completed the roof for the Inn.


The thatch material is woven sterile gauze (which is one of my new favorite materials).


I finished some detail work on the planking for the upstairs and downstairs porches. The last touch up item will be to finish off the windows.


And the Inn sitting across from the Mystical Emporium.


Still working my way through some little touch-up projects. In the last picture you can see that the large boulders in town are still dark grey and need dry brushed. I also want to spend some time developing the area behind the mystical emporium (top left in the above picture). I think it would be a suitable space for a little rock wall and garden space.

I'll toss up some larger pictures tomorrow.

Here is where the town of Tristram currently stands:


The above picture was done with all my dead tree pieces and my new loot markers strewn here and there.

Below is with regular trees:


So, the cathedral base needs the most work here. Stone paths don't match up with the town, and I think that is a matter of going back with a grey dry-brush. While I made zero effort to leave myself notes about how I did the first stone paths, at least I have very few options in terms of grey craft paints so it shouldn't take long to sort out. The Cathedral base tile and hill need flock, the boulders on cathedral hill need dry brushed, and a number of little details here and there need sorted out. But it is coming right along

Wow that town is really coming together nicely.
Also, I love the way the trees transition from the board into the backdrop. I will have to steal that idea once I finally get around to gussying up my display cabinets.

Cheers,
Stroezie.

This is so cool! Loving it.
Is it the witch hut next, Adria?

The Catacomb entrance is probably next on the list. I do have pieces to make Adria's caravan too, and most likely at least one figure laying around that will foot the bill.

A small, perhaps boring, little bit of work over the weekend. For this I took some stone columns from Crom's Anvil


And scaled them down to fit in my terrain. In the process I also got twice as many pillars.


So if the overall height on the columns was 50mm, I would say these are now a set of 30mm and 20mm tall columns. Most of my terrain has a 20mm tall wall height (stuff I build for 15mm games) but I have some commercial bought terrain coming that will be taller.

Right now I'm plodding through a pack of Fallen figures. I'm just not a fan of bulk painting, and I decided to go back and fix some issues with the test figures, so my overall progress has been slow, even by my standards. Hopefully I'll get them knocked out by the end of the week and start to work on my beast men, and then the demons themselves (including The Butcher).

I finally finished up my Fallen (proxy) figures.




I believe all the figures came from Alternative Armies and maybe RPE?



Next up will be my Beast Clans.
