6 weeks in the making, the second part of the building I am calling  'The Guild House' is finally complete. As I cannot help but experiment a little with each building it is not identical to it's partner. Not a problem- I can just claim that one building is a later addition. Construction materials are the same as for part 1: Fire Dragon Games  blue foam and metal windows; Games Workshop Mordheim roof, doors and windows; foam core and balsa wood. Paints are a mix of Ceramacoat, Americana, Coat D'Arms as well as washes made with Golden Inks, Flow Enhancer and Glazing Medium.
Now all that needs to be done is a base for both buildings together. There is also a bit of trimming to aid fitting the walkway into the second building as well as a small roof section to add at the join.

After nearly a month the second part of the Guildhouse is ready for paint. This building seem to take longer to put together than the last one.
Construction is the same as the previous building: blue styrofoam and pewter windows from Firedragon Games, foamcore for the upper floors, balsa wood floor and trim, plastic windows and roof sections from Games Workshop's  Blood on The Streets terrain set. Walls are plastered with regular old drywall mud.

Part 1 of the Merchants' Guild building is done. Once the second part is finished they will get based together. Paints are Delta Ceramcoat and Americana craft paints with home-made washes and glazes made with Golden Glazing medium and Golden Flow enhancer. The interior wood floor is too dark- I am still not 100% happy with my wood colouring. I am after a mix of greys and light brown/tans for the weathered look and I haven't quite got there ywt. I am very happy with the way the stone and plaster turned out  though.

Another building underway. Actually, 2 buildings to be joined by an overhead walkway this first one is completed as far as construction goes and is now currently getting primed. The blue foam and metal windows are from Firedragon Games; the roof section and other plastic windows and doors are from the now hard to find Blood on The Streets terrain kit from GW.

After what has seemed like quite a bit of work, the remaining two ruined houses of the Bolt Action Ruined Hamlet kit from Warlord Games is finished. I combined the two to make a larger house, perhaps a small manor. There is still few pieces leftover from which I will make some over grown ruins (not for Kodsticklerburg). Two things about this piece: I forgot that chimneys need fireplaces, so I will have to  make at least one; secondly I got a little excited and didn't wait for the Superleaf flock on the hedge to dry before applying the static grass. Consequently, there is static grass on the hedge. Oh well... green meteorites, chaos and all that... I have taken several pictures,  some better than others.

I have finished two more buildings for Kodsticklerburg. One is the other half of the Sarissa Precision English Timber Framed House and the other is a Bolt Action ruined farmhouse from Warlord:
The Sarissa Precision building is actually quite a bit yellow-er than it's other half, but it doesn't+ seem to show in the photos.
I added a bit of moss to the shingles of this building:
The Bolt Action building is quite small; I think I may have missed a wall in there but still when you look at the end wall it is still rather tiny when compared to the Sarissa Precision building. There is lots of detail to paint but I can't say that it goes together super tight. Part of that is the modular nature of the kit. I have two more of the same building that I will be making into one larger complex.
A few Dwarves sniffin' around for some wyrdstone...

I finished my starting Dwarven warband (500 GC's). Now I have 2 warbands... if I could only find someone who wanted to play the game I would be set .
Their fearless leader (model form TAG's Dwarven Empire range:

Dwarven Engineer from Warmonger Miniatures:

Dwarf with blunderbuss (counts as a handgun) from Warmonger Miniatures:
A couple of Dwarven warriors I call The Brothers. Also from Warmonger Miniatuires:
And finally, young Schmengi, from the TAG range (he's from the artillery set with an axe added). He's either carrying the warband's bag of wyrdstone or his mom has packed him a lunch...
