County mansion WIP#2


Still working on the building, painted and fixed the windows... I usually paint the windows in metal color but thought this would do as well, some paint&pencil on them while the doors are painted brown.


To scale with an 1/72 fig.


The tower has a separate door.


Back side... Some windows didn't stay in their places, will fix them later.


And a wash on the Fricklander grenadiers and dragoons' faces, brings out the detail... Again, I usually do not do washes but managed these ones quite well, much more reliable than undercoating with light brown and highlighting with skin tones.

  2. Nice work: the building is showing more of it's proud heritage, and the trooper's does "pop" out after a wash!

    1. Thanks; I may do washes on the faces more frequently after this little experiment.

  3. Thought so: a pretty big building. As well as a mansion, it could be the 'Burgerhof' in a provincial capital, say. I really do like its versatility of design. I am very tempted to make something similar myself...
    Cheers,
