These look great painted up.

I’m not sure that the detailed interiors add anything much to the print time or material used. And certainly use much less material than solid buildings. And they certainly look 100x better than without.

Completed third house just now, a bit more complex thing.





And a group shot of all three.



Any color variations are a bit lost in the pics, as the white balance etc. are not great. Took these quickly with my phone camera.

These look great!

The vibe I'm getting isn't so much Middle Earth as The Elder Scrolls Online's city of Solitude in Western Skyrim.

Pretty sure my characters have a house in that last piece :-)

Fascinating stuff, thanks for posting.

Ok, managed to paint the walls I have printed so far:









I am no expert in medieval castles, but would it make more sense to have the portcullis in front of the actual gates, so as to prevent the enemy from breaching it? o_o

Oh, and since the entrance is rised in this version, I will add a ramp on both sides. There's also a stair version, or a sepate moat gatehouse with bridge avalaible, but the latter would require some extra landsscaping, so not sure about that.

This is very impressive. I love the way you are building Gondor with the 3D prints.
