The first shown here is the Café from the Pegasus bridge set produced by Warlord Games. I seemed to have acquired this for the princely sum of £2.99.
As you can see the building is now built but the windows are door frames were all a bit bland. I added some legdes and frames using coffee stirrers. These were cut using my latest tool...the chopper. A very worthwhile birthday present.
This chops wood, plastic etc with really keen cuts and all to the same length. A great gift. The blade is so sharp just touching this caused a great cut on my finger !
The building has been rendered with builders sand.
The whole thing was then painted cream with the shutters painted a rather nice blue. The roof was covered in individual cereal card tiles
I also managed to acquire these terraces from Timeline miniatures - Again these were relayively straightforward to build and have been given the render treatment. Windows are doors will be added once painted.
The longer terrace has an integral shop built in...will probably end up as Jones the Butcher
The great thing about these buildings are the integral back yards complete with outhouse.
as you can see I have now treated the exteriors with a sand covering and begun to give them their first coat of paint.
The window frames and doors will all be painted separately and glued into the final model.
Finally I was so impressed with the timeline products I splashed out and bought their pub...no work in progress shots here but as you can see the whole thing goes together brilliantly.
I still need to do some finishing work on this but it does look the business
More to come very soon...
