Bricks picked out in Burnt Umber:

Then I pick out random bricks with combinations of browns and oranges. Stippled on with a stipple brush - with the excess removed by dabbing with a dry finger: [Image: 004_zpsyrbtkmxr.jpg]

This example didn't turn out as well as my previous test. It was a little rushed and I didn't use as many brown/orange tones - but you get the idea.

Those bricks are seriously gorgeous, and a great reminder that at some point I need to butcher a paint brush and make a stamp.

So - as some of you may be aware, procrastination over my competition entry, led me to starting a whole bunch of other things.

These things:

It started with this piece. Which I just made up as I went along. I had no drawings or designs in mind. I trial and error-ed my way through.

As you can see - there is still work to be done. The brickwork is very nearly complete as I type this. The chimney pot still needs gluing and painting. The doors still need detailing - but it's getting there. The door on the second story was a late addition. I came up with the idea of adding a modular set of wooden scaffold/walkway/staircase things. It will bring an extra dimension of play into games.

Once I had the shape of this building I went searching for other shapes to build. I scoured through ancient White Dwarf magazines and found some tutorials.

Including this Barn:

I then came across images of the old Warhammer Townscape. These were cardboard cutout models released in the late 80's. I remember lusting after them as a child - but I never actually obtained a set while they were in production. Looking at pictures I created my own foamcore reproductions of several of them making slight modifications here and there.

So now my pestilent town is starting to take form. I am going to try and focus on getting pieces done one at a time over the next few weeks.

The modular stairways are an awesome idea to increase playability. Really makes me want to pick up mordheim again.
