Just clocked this, mate.
Nice work.

Looking closely you can see a fair bit of colour in it.
Looking good!

Thanks fellas  :)

Should have an update on it by the weekend.

The sheets are from Wills, available from most decent hobby shops  :)

cheers

Unfortunately I am in the US, and my searching hasn't turned up any US distributors for Wills.  The one big model railroad styrene sheet maker over here doesn't seem to have any stone patterns either.

How feasible do you think carving this type of rough stone pattern would be?  I am aiming to make my Frostgrave buildings in this style (Tibet, Bhutan, Western China), and I know the pencil method for larger inca-style rounded stones, but these squared off, very irregular Himalayan stonework patterns seem like they'd be tougher to pull off. Any advice?

A bit later than I would've liked but its complete and in the post tomorrow.













Any advice?

Carving from blue foam (or whichever foam is your preference) would be very time consuming so you might bite the bullet and go with a bit of a postage charge  :?

That James, is a thing of beauty  :-*
Well done indeed. Of all you gazillion model buildings, that's one of my favourites ever.
Is it heading off to the land of Extraordinary Kriegspielers by any chance? Or is it some other lucky (yet patient) customer?  lol

Excellent work James  :-* :-* Nice to see this finished. The drainage marks and final stone highlighting really brings the tower to life.
