The settings on these are both very, very nice. Well executed designs here today :D :D

Completely agree! Very impressive. Wondered where the carpet came from in "Mansions" and the building in "Dwarf Lords"?

It's a printout on my almost ancient inkjet printer printed on 'high resolution paper inkjet paper ' (to reduce bleeding). There are plenty of sites where you can download suitable images. Just search for 'free dollhouse printable' and you'll get there.

One source:  http://miniature.net/smallstuff/rugs.htm

The wallpaper, photographs and floor were also made this way. Furniture is from Fenris Games IIRC.

I like my games like my orange juice: pulpy with no added sugar or artificial sweeteners

The backdrop for the Dwarfs is a Gormitti toy that my wife picked up at the boot fair for 20p,a bit of hacking,chopping and painting later and that's the result

I love the Mansion and voted for it, but how much better it would be without the big black disks on the floor, where the figures are standing.  The Dwarves are very well done, but all things being equal I go for items that I myself would like to have :)
I am interested in land warfare throughout history and beyond, except the Seven Years War, in Europe.

What a great scene Gnome. Can you provide some details on the bookcase?

Likewise on the Dwarven cave/mine entrance. Very nice!

Those are obviously the wormholes through which these brave adventures are about to be sucked to face unspeakable horrors  >:D

Not much to tell really - it's a Fenris Games resin furniture piece: http://www.fenrisgames.com/shop.html#!/~/product/category=2202364&id=12089249, painted over black undercoat.
