More Tabletop Workshop Buildings

I finished two more buildings in the Tabletop Workshop catalogue: the Town House and the Merchant's House.
Presumably a building named "Town House" would be found in an urban setting with little greenery and (possibly) cobble stone streets, but I based this structure so it fit in with my cottages.
Although the Merchant's House came with a thatch roof and the Town House a tile or slate roof, as both buildings have the same foot print you could swap them around as you please.
I am still not 100% happy with my daub colouring, although the Perry's cottage in my previous blog post is my favourite I can't remember how I painted it.
One of the nice features of the TW buildings is they have some interior detail if you want to use them for skirmish or RPG's.
I took these shots during WIP to show the interiors. The second floor also lifts out to gain access to the ground floor.
The musketeer shows that the windows are a little low for 28mm, and possibly also 25mm, but perfect for use with 1/72 figures.
For the sake of completing the set as it were, I have ordered two more buildings from Warlord Games. Given that I am still waiting on orders placed in February to arrive from the UK I don't anticipate seeing them too soon...

  3. More, very nicely painted buildings. I really like the slate roof. One is my big bugbears with mdf buildings is the roofs. This one looks so much better for having that 3D effect.

    1. Yes, if there is one thing that I like to replace on a MDF building it is the roof. As Tony Hardwood says: "I tend to take more care when painting roofs as it is usually the roof that you spend most time looking down on ".

    2. Is never thought of it like that, but that is a really good point!

  4. Lovely work, and the first thing that came to my mind was how much I liked the daub colouring. Very understated and not the brilliant white I have strayed into on occasion.

    1. Apparently (I can't recall where I read it) white washed daub was an 18th C. thing. I the middle ages through the renaissance the clay was mixed with straw, dung and sometimes blood, all of which would have added colour. It could quite dark initially then fade over a couple of summers.

  6. Those do look nice. Some day I will have enough room to place mine, so I can actually build them.

  10. :O I am agog. Cod these are awesome.

    Pity the Covenant forces now on my painting desk will want to burn them.

    ooo ... maybe that's the next thing needed?

    I also missed getting you my old church for making into ruin.

  11. Really really nice. I've steered clear of MDF buildings for a number of reasons. These could tempt me.
