A little bit more work. Sieved Sharp Sand, glued to the earthen areas with waterproof PVA.





When itís dried, Iíll sand the river smooth and then give it a coat of thinned PVA for protection. After that, Iíll use GS to sort out the gaps in the wall then add a milliput edge around the entirety of the board.

NB: At a later stage Iíll be adding fine sand to the cobbles, so they blend better, for a finished effect like that in the following images of the village

Ta very much.

Seeing the above pictures together reminds me that Iím in a quandary about adding a well to the Manor House yard. The well adds some playability to the village but the yard is much tighter on space.

Leave it out. It would make an interesting game where the occupants of the seized manor sorted out to bring back water from the nearby river etc

Thanks all  :)

Regarding water, I am reminded of Dick Strawbridge and his French chateau. I recall that his moat was originally used for both the supply of drinking water and the disposal of effluent. In which case, the moat could be fed by a spring, with the moat then being the houseís water supply.

Leave it in, leave it out Ö. All the options!  :D Thanks for the comments  ;)

Small update. The timber-framed extension has planked walls whereas they need to be plastered (as in the village pictures above). First step is to cover the planks with 0.25mm plasticard.





PS: I realise the some areas need a sole plate
