I got absolutely nothing painted tonight as I spent so long putting the gate house together in 3D builder. It was being, what is technically called, a right Bastard. Spreading stuff all over the place. But eventually I won.
I decided to go for the tiled roof to match the rest, and it looks like this now…
I have made a teeny courtyard to show what things look like so far…
I still have the gates to do, but will get them sliced tomorrow. Like the walls, the gate could be without a roof. It comes with a stout wooden beam across the uprights as well.
If I had one wish for this set it would be the half sized bits too. I am sure I can mess about with the builder software and come up with something.
The posh farm is going to be surrounded by these fences. I was thinking of having it on a slight rise and have a smaller gate out the back (for want of a better description) a path from this gate will lead down a steep rise (small cliff). There will be a well either in the compound or nearby… this is what I am thinking right now… tomorrow could be totally different 😂
Oh yeah, guess who just ordered some more Samurai miniatures! These are the ones from Battle Valour Games. I decided I needed some civilians and asked my mate Martin (who is the sole uk seller) when they would be in. As chance would have it, they had just arrived. So I ordered some civilians for my farm, the. Some Ronin, and the seven Samurai, and some bandits, and some samurai, oh yeah and some Ashigaru and peasants , not forgetting some oni… yeah! It’s not as if I don’t have sixty odd to paint right now without ordering more. These new ones are going to be for skirmish gaming…. that’s my excuse and I am sticking to it!
