Medieval Fortified Farm

Over the past few weeks I have been busy working away on this wee project. Finally finished the flocking etc yesterday.

The Medieval Fortified Farm from Hudson & Allen.

 Unfortunately this belongs to someone else so I guess I have to give it back now.

 Made some gates for the main entrance. It didn't look right without them.


 Removable roof piece on the stable. A bit of hay for the farmer to move around.
 The roof and top story of the main house is also removable.












Wouldn't mind this for myself. Great model and a pleasure to paint. Might have to give the Lion Rampant rules a try soon so that we can give this farm some action.

  7. Excellent work ! I've seen this building and it's on my "to-get-it" list !
    Like it's a "single piece' building , except the removable parts, not easy to paint in fact,
    congrats !
    the door is a good addition : I will pick-up the idea!

    1. Very nice thought Craig, but it's Chris! Could be a bit hard to explain when we all game together every couple of weeks. On the plus side though, that does mean I might get to play with it occasionally.

  20. This is a great building and you have done a superb paint job on it Roger.
    Do you mind sharing what colour you used for the thatch, to my eye it looks spot on.

    1. Thanks Pat
      The thatch started with a black undercoat and then I drybrushed it up with Vallejo Burnt Umber and then a mix of Burnt Umber and Vallejo Old Wood. About 3 layers of drybrushing getting a bit lighter each time. I looked at a lot of photos for this part but felt that I needed a dark thatch rather than a straw colour, to go with the yellowish stone work.
