MEDIEVAL HOUSES and promote blogs Give-away !

Hi !!
After the two "Scottish Houses", I've painted two Medieval Houses from the same manufacturer (Ebob miniatures   ) I've learned that in fact those buildings are manufactured by "Vatican Enterprise" and can be found directly here : Wargamescenics (US).

I can't say if they are better for 1/72 or 25/28mm: I let you make your own opinion ! (look the last photos)
Very pleasant to paint but I've some difficulties with the wood. I'm not satisfied with the usual more-less-brown that I have when I paint wood. I know that it's the wrong colour because it's not the main color in the reality! So I've tried to do a sort of  grey-brown wood. More satisfying, but not exactly what I want. Another problem when I paint is that I can't remember exactly all the colors and the steps I've used, so I've some difficulties to reproduce the same method when I'm satisfied with a result... (........................................ no comment .....................................................................................)

1-The large Medieval House :
unpainted model


2- The Small Medieval House :
3-with figures :
30mm Mithril
1/72 Vikings

4-Now, I've some medieval buildings for .... err.... I don't know !

  1. Sam, you've put some serious aging on the thatched roofs! Great job!

  2. J'aime beaucoup! Un joli petit village naît sous nos yeux, en plus de ça on devine (enfin) les fumées se dégageant des toits, elles y sont les cheminées!
    Beau travail!

  3. They look very nice. I suppose the real test would be how they look alongside buildings made just for 1/72nd like the zvezda medieval house (the one with the insanely complicated Multi part Roof)

    1. Thanks Paul ! you're right, so I will take a picture with both houses but I'm pretty sure that they are better with 28mm figures.

  12. J'ai le même problème que toi avec mes mélanges ^^
    Un truc que j'ai vu utiliser et qui marche bien : tu fais un mélange partiel et tu continues ton mélange directement sur ce que tu peins. Ça marche vraiment bien sur de grandes zones, peut-être plus difficile juste sur des poutres. Sinon, il te faut "appuyer" le brossage et passer un lavis avant qu'il ne soit complètement sec ;)
    En tout cas, tu as de quoi remplir le bourg de Lézeau (Bywater) ou plutôt Stock, plus proche de Bree !

    1. Merci Stéphane ! en faot le problème que j'ai c'est surtout reproduire un même effet plusieurs fois donc je ne pense pas que ta technique m'aiderait beaucoup !

      Pour le reste.... tu es toujours aussi perspicace !
      je n'ai pas encore vraiment choisi leur "destinée" mais tu brûles ....

  15. They are great buildings and you have done a great job painting them. Looking at your pictures, I would say they work in either scale.
    Cheers,
    Pat.

      I think too that they could be good enough for 1/72 but they are better for 28mm. Mithril, (except the ... Hobbits and the Dwarves!) are 30mm minimum....
      But I don't know if 28mm is always 28mm : I'm not a specialist!
