28mm Large Residence - WIP #2

Here are some more WIP shots of my 28mm European large residence for WWI and WWII skirmish gaming. I've added roof tiles using vacuform plastic sheet. I've painted them to represent slate roofing, which looks ok. I could have painted them as red clay tiles, but I was afraid that would have given the building too much of a Mediterranean feel which I didn't want. I've added window 'lights' (the inner frames for the individual panes) and smaller chimney liners which seem to be very characteristic of European multi-level dwellings. There's some photos at the bottom showing how the building opens up to allow access for figures.

Still on the to-do list is creating suitable front and back doors, painting the shutter hinge hardware in where the laser marks are, and working on the rear lean-to shed/outhouse. It's also possible I may add a walled front yard with some grass similar to what Matashiki did with his. I also need to do at least one more pass of dry-brushing to bring out more detail. The last pass will probably with higher contrast colors in a more random pattern to mimic the effect Matashiki got with his finished building.

Nice house :) It looks like it fits together well. These quality war gaming models make me so jealous.

Very nice work, Allan. I have the Old Glory damaged building - looks similar to yours, but damaged of course :) Best, Dean
