I am not a big fan of the green walls but, the details and the constructions are AMAZING! I take of my imaginary hat (which is bigger than all of your hats!)!

 

Thank You :). Yeah, I can understand that You don't like the green walls. Before painting I was sceptical, too. But then again I wanted to try something different than the standard-grey-walls. Right now I like the outcome ;). I'll consider the color scheme once again when the whole board will be done (which will take a loooong time I asume :-P ).

The little paintings on the wall and the cover image in one puts this beyond amazing.  You really captured the buildings in the images well.

Thank You, I appreciate Your kind words :)

Very cool details! Where are the raven from?

Thanks :)

The ravens are from HQresin: https://hexy-shop.com/shop/accessories/modelling-basing/fantasy-mb/ravens-basing-kit/ (there may be other sources, like e.g. www.battlefield-berlin.de).

First I wanted these ravens: http://www.tabletop-art.de/Raven-Set , but they weren't available when I needed some. There are a few shops distributing stuff from Tabletop Art.

Given that you've got Grimwell in it, you should call your building number two "The Sanitarium" since it really does look like one anyway.

 

Hi :)

Yes, first I wanted to build a sanitarium in this style. But then this image:

caught me. maybe I'll build something like this but a bit bigger, with more rooms as a sanitarium :)

 

__________

So, what is happening? I had a game at a friends house. So I prepared

large.IMG_0776.jpg

a few miniatures (Tara crew, Rasputina Crew and Lady Justice's Death Marshalls for Tara) an started painting them:

large.IMG_0808.jpglarge.IMG_0810.jpg

 

Further I had no own scheme markers. So I had to make some. They aren't painted yet.

large.IMG_0777.jpglarge.IMG_0811.jpg

 

But just before I started painting the miniature, I finished a minor terrain piece, namely "The Monument".

large.IMG_0812.jpglarge.IMG_0813.jpg

It shell be the monument You can see under the moon on this picture:

Next, I will paint some more miniatures.

I love this board.

Not for the uncanny display of craftsmanship (well done on that side) but because I think you caught the creepy atmosphere perfectly.

Just a small note: I would have loved if you would have put in the gallery all kind of creepy small paintings.

When you posted that image of the models inside the building it was gold. I hope you will make more buildings with creepy details. Something not too big and obvious but something small like a Easter egg, something that make you say "that's so cool" when you find it.

10 out of 10 and waiting for more.

I'm not sure how many details the upcoming buildings will get. Details take a lot of time and I would like to get the board to a playable state in 2017. So maybe first I will build the buildings to a raw state and add the details later (I'm afraid that I won't get motivated to add details after I finish the raw buildings, so I'm not sure how I will handle it).

The last months I painted my Tara Crew and just recently I get back to build some buildings :)

 

Right now I'm working on buildings for two 1 ft * 1 ft bard elements. They will have another tower and some flats or barracks or something similar.

Wow this is really great work! Thank you for sharing! 

Thank You both. It is my pleasure to show You some photos (and to get some kind words :-P).

 

So lets continue; I glued the walls, cut the window and door holes, did the roofs. Lets have a look:

Next I will make the doors and window frames, prepare the two board elements and then do the paint job.

Very nice! I like buildings with an inner courtyard. Mabye i'll have to try something similar soon.

The roof looks somehow a little bit strange, in my opinion. Maybe it needs to be a little bit bigger to jut out over the walls.

Thank You :). If You'll do so, let us see your work :)

Progress is being made - slowly :-P

The buildings around the two squares are done for now. There are no detail works (like lanterns) yet. There will be some better pictures when they will be completed.

Right now I'm working on the street tiles.

I just messed myself even more. This is going to look AMAZING altogether.

I especially love the effect of the cobbled road running through the building's courtyard, but seeing it all come together in that all-too-familiar colour scheme just gets me all hot and bothered. Crews will stand out nicely on it too.

That looks fantastic, well done and keep up the good work. I never felt i was up to the task to make a decent cityboard like the one you are making.

Thanks :). Never say never ;). I don't think building this stuff isn't that hard; it just takes some time.

You are doing amazing work.  Thank you for sharing, I can't wait to see how it turns out!

Thank You, too!

So have a further look :)

The beard elements are done. So are the buildings around the squares (project name "The Two Squares" :-P).

Wow this really looks amazing. Absolutely love it. 

I am just curious how it will be to play on it. Atnospheric for sure :) But you have a lot high blocking terrain do you think this will be a problem?  

Is it still possible to reach the models in these narrow streets? I think the photo give me a wring impression here ;)

My plan is to build narrow streets with many buildings. I'm not a tournament player and the people I usually play with don't mind the amount of the terrain. BUT:

I must not place everything on the board :-P

 

There are no terrain updates from me :-/ Currently I'm painting some miniatures. I still have an unpainted Misaki crew and plenty Outcast models and because my painting motivation is quite high, I think that I'll paint some more time. So maybe in autumn or so I'll continue with the further buildings :-)

 

Here some quick-shots of my recent miniatures:

Wow, this board is so fantastic, I love the barracks especially, with all the different small angles and the small niches and stuff. Two thumbs up for this work!

If you don't mind me asking...how do you do the brick work? Same as the road tiles. I see you make your big cuts with what appears to be a hot wire cutter. But unsure how you do the scoring.
