Thanks all.  :D

Last picture from me today*, showing the final layer of sand. Which is scattered onto dilute PVA then dabbed with dilute PVA to build up the undulations.

Iíve also started on a small veggie patch - Iím not completely sold on it so will see how it comes along. (Iíll be adding a milliput edge so the finished item will be a more organic shape)



*as I will likely make more of these for a hamlet, the photo references are very useful

Do they grow vegetables in Scotland? Does anyone eat them?

Keen to see how the turf roof comes out.

Looks great! I like texturing with PVA and sand or even just fine flocking material. It adds a layer of "3D" to MDF buildings and makes scratch-built ones "pop," so to speak.

Thanks chaps.  :)

Iím also intrigued how the turf roof will turn out as Iíve not made one before. If it looks fine Iíll probably make two bases each of two simpler houses (no chimneys!) to complete the hamlet.

On the meantime, hereís the house and field finished to pre-paint stage:



Some close ups of the house (Iíve already re-flocked and over-sprayed the tree):



And given that the fancy stone bridge thatís on my boards (it lifts off) wonít do for the poorer parts of Scotland, Iíve started on a tree-trunk option. The image shows the finished stone bridge and the WIP wooden alternative:



Iíve also found some larch and spruce trees, which can be based up to go alongside the oak, birch and rowan I already have.

A Tacksman's house rather than that of a really poor humblie perhaps?
He's not so well off that a turn of the laird's fortunes won't send him tumbling back to down the social ladder. But he's responsible for keeping an eye on the folk in the Glen on behalf o his lordship and so befits a slightly better hoose.

Perhaps he charges a penny for those using the bridge.

In the veggie patch - Neeps and tatties of course!

But in any case.....a lovely piece of wargames scenery

Thatís all very useable back story! 8)

Tbh before I started this small project Iíd not heard of a Tacksman but it really is an interesting role including - from what Iíve read - the providing/leading of a contingent of fighting men.

Log Bridge (which lifts out as an alternate to my stone version) is prepped for painting;
