Being a modeller for quite a few years now, I decided to explore the endless possibilities that the world (through internet) offers, and come up with a series of ways of building, modelling and painting fast (but not hastily), to create the worlds I was seeing in history books since I was little. . .If you care to join me. . . This is the place to be! And, I promise you to find the way (or ways)!!

Stonework revisited!

Good day and Merry Christmas to everyone! :-)

First of all, your wishes made me very happy!!Thank you very much for them. I hope that 2011 will make us smile more often!

Last weekend I made another Normandy building, and this time, I tried to use some Slater's Plasticard (#0419)- Stone Courses Grey, for the front walls (glued to the foamcore wall component), while on the side walls, I used some Vallejo's Oxid Paste , which are less textured (and more scale realistic) than using PVA Glue and coarse sand.

For the front walls, I used firstly some Army Painters - Skeleton Bone Spray (nice product by the way), and then some drybrushing with Greys (Medium - Light / in that sequence). For adding a finer touch, I paint some individual stones with Brownish colours, to give some character!

The downpipe, was made by cotton buds and some Green stuff! Imagine that! :-)










I hope you like it!
