Very not bad!  That gable certainly adds to the balcony

One of the plastic decorative pieces on the balcony has already lost its hammer due to my hamfistedness, but that is still salvageable I reckon.

Or you can leave it like that. It's a ruin after all :)

Love this way this build is evolving.  And those rooftiles are a neat idea.

One groovy build. That's gonna end up looking awesome with your painting skills.

The balcony is now finished, bar one possible addition. I am contemplating adding supports for the awning on the outside corners, but I'm having a hard time finding a balance between an authentic look and playability.

To make it easier to place miniatures there (I reckon it's a prime archer/crowsbowman spot) I made one side of the balcony ruined. On  the other hand; all medieval examples of balconies like this have pillars supporting the awnings above. BUt those would make it more difficult to place miniatures I feel.

So what to do?

Anyway; taking a page from Quidamcorvus' playbook, I've started adding GW model building details to my build. First the two carved figures on the balcony ( I will leave the one damaged; cheers McMordain), then some more details on the awning and a round disk displaying a mythical scene (I think it's a pied-piperesque depiction?) on the short wall. I imagine it to be a bronze embellishment, so there'll be plenty of patina later on.

Finally (for now), there's two sword wielding monk types I cut from the rear wall of a GW fantasy building (a small house). I added some plasticard edges to them and now they're stone carvings guarding the outside door. They're just mocked up here; the sprue goo is still drying on the seams and I need to sand those flat before permanently attaching them to the building.

Then; I ran into some trouble fitting the tile floor pieces together; looks like the edges I left on the sides are too big, even though they were exact matches in TinkerCad. Looks like the printer put on some extra material to the circumfences of the floor pieces. So it's one more time into the CADiverse to rectify this; I will completely take off the edges and fit them by eye when glueing them down instead of matching them up like puzzle pieces.

Ah well; it was a good idea in theory at least... ;)

Always cool to see what other people scrounge out of their bits boxes!  This is coming together nicely.

Wow, this build just gets better and better.  The detail you're putting into this really adds to the character.  Truly inspiring.

Finally; the tile floor is in!  :D

Next stop; the doors and then the piles of rubble...

First door is done. It's the easy one, because this one does not open... ::)

It's partially blocked by the large rubble pile in the hallway next to it, and I plan to add a bookcase or cupboard or something like that to the inside, so it's only partially visible there too. After all; it's not opening anytime soon witht hat rubble piled up against it.

This is also why I made the inside slightly less detailed. The shape was achieved by cutting out plasticard along a template existing of the cutout of the original door, which I saved for this occasion.

I then reduced the sides with the thickness of the plasticard strip I cut for this purpose and glued them together. But not before I first created a similar door-shape from coffee stirrers, which is the outward facing side of the door. After it dried, I simply superglued it to the door which was placed into its place just minutes before.

The rubble pile is now a pretty cut up piece of foam, but it will be embellished with loads of stones, sand, gravel, planks etc; the remains of a once intact house. It will also provide easy access to the first floor.

I've also sourced the first of the base camp enhancing items from the Frostgrave rulebook; a sarcophagus, which I've mocked up here in what will probably be its definitive location. I will post a list of all the items I will have to put in there later.

Another smallish update; I laid some pretty flooring on the 1st floor; it's been slowly consumed, as firewood I suppose, by the residing warband.

I also put in the doorframe on the door that will be able to open (plasticard) and another pile of debris has been placed in the corner of the base. It too will require the addition of some actual debris before being finished.

And finally, I added some damage to the tile floor, as it looked just too pristine before. I might add some more scratches and missing tiles here and there.

Next I'll probably be working on building an opening door for the actual workplace...
