« on: November 24, 2019, 05:36:39 PM »
This a project that i have been inspired by reading about the hundred years war, mostly Bernard Cornwell novels and some historical books, i have
started painting some Perry HYW plastics as well. I am focusing on a French medievel town with fortified walls and towers, so far i have some photos of the main gatehouse and some large buildings that will make up the town square, this is a 28mm project so building are up to 300mm high ! some photos

That is looking very nice, and outrageously megalomaniac  lol

Great stuff,

The only change I would make would be adding a fill between the Colombage

Examples Vitré, Brittany

Fantastic looking, and I see you are properly supervised by a feline overseer. This is good.

I'd agree on the need for some sort of fill between the timbers, but that would also be an enormous amount of work...

Several of the main western battles were fought within 60klms of Vitré. It is also one of the cities we conduct our 100 years war tours in. Quite a large number of the buildings, 80 plus are colombage buildings and the chateau also dates from the late period.

yes Cosmo is my mascot of sorts, a great entertainer, yes fill between the timbers could be done with polyfilla but these buildings are taking long enough as it is and any more time would take away time from making the next building, hoping to make 4 large buildings to make the square first, have most of the towers done which will have town walls attatched, after the town square will make blacksmith shop and 3 more bases to fit around the town square bases to fit onto a 4ft x 4ft board
