Saxon Church - WIP 3

I'm now working to a deadline to have this ready for a game this weekend.  I find a deadline always boosts my productivity, but sometimes the details can suffer as a consequence.  Anyhow, painting is progressing and while I'm happy with how its coming out, its a lot grungier than I had expected.  Then again, this IS the Dark Ages I suppose...
Painting - antique white hobby acrylic on all wattle/daub surfaces, then a brown sepia style wash and an antique drybrush on top.  Wood was done in German Camo brown, then drybrushed with Ochre (no drybrushing completed when these pics were taken)

Thatch roofing (not shown here obviously) - focused on the edging, which is quite fiddly, and now starting the front entrance roof .

Haven't started the base yet, or any internal detailing - to be honest they won't get done to the level of quality I will be happy with by Sat, so I'll skip them to focus on having the externals done and do the insides another day.

The biggest issue with a project like this is all the drying time the thatched roof requires - at least five different coats/layers/edges with at least a day to dry between each.  I'm on schedule for Saturday though!

  1. Fantastic stuff Paul. Your church looks very impresive now. I can't wait to see the end result.
