Castle wall texture rollers?
« on: January 15, 2022, 08:21:17 AM »
Hi all can anyone please recommend a decent castle wall texture roller? I have had a go at making one; came out too rounded for my liking

Cheers

I got a couple of Green Stuff World rolling pins, and they work as advertised... one might be suitable as castle walls, with irregular sized square blocks.

I checked GSW site by the way, and they've added a huge amount of pins and rollers to their selections, I am sure they got pretty much every possible pattern, check those out. o_o

There are some free STL files from a designer called Deland Craven on My Mini Factory. You would need to 3D print them.

I have some of the Green Stuff World Texture Rollers and they are very good. This one may work.

Etsy has a bunch for sale too.  Looks like people are printing out the rollers and selling them.  Pretty cheap by the looks of it.

That's great thanks for the recommendations everyone I might go the 3d printed route cheers!
 edit: with a closer look that GSW roller looks it would do a good job too maybe with a bit more weathering after rolling..
