However you won't find the quoins, door arch or window dressings in the shops, since these I made myself from acrylic.  :D
By hand, or on a laser? Did you etch the detail like the woodgrain, or is that all painted on?

Excellent job either way!

Thanks again chaps for all the kind comments. Appreciate it. :)

I must say that working to a deadline really helps get things moving!

Chris, fantastic work, as per!  How did you make the crop fields, esp. the ones I assume are meant to be wheat / barley?

Thanks in advance,

Mitch

Mitch,
The crop fields are just sections of door mat which I ran through the circular saw with a slotting blade to help define rows. The field being tilled is just thatch cut to size and scattered. I love making these! They are so quick and simple to produce!

By hand, or on a laser? Did you etch the detail like the woodgrain, or is that all painted on?

Hatemonger,

Drawn and lasered, then mitred and scratched by hand to give some relief detail. All the wood grain is painted :)

fantastic - so when are we going to see a game?



Fairly soon Eric! A good friend and myself will be taking an extended weekend shortly to play out a long viking invasion campaign. 5 days of beer and wargames and very little else! :D We will document the lot and post it when were done.
I noticed you live fairly local, do you play on a regular basis at a club?

Thanks

Chris

Chris,

What? Coconut matting as per wiping your feet?! I would never have thought, but yeah, ideal! :-*

When you say "slotting blade", do you mean one of those uber-thin kerf ones as used by luthiers, or something different?

Cheers,

Mitch

Inspiring! Love the feel of the village, would probably love it even more if we could see a shot of the whole thing set up for play!  :-*
