    There’s that Liquid Green Stuff again! Suddenly everyone’s using it. I’ll have to get some to experiment with.

    By the way, weren’t you going for accessible interiors? Regardless, it’s a good-looking scenery piece.

    This project is coming on very nicely. I am kind of embarrassed at the cardboard stand in building I made whilst waiting for some MDF buildings to arrive.

    Thanks!

    Here is the second building’s shell:

    As per feedback I have narrowed the door a plank.

    Ooh, me likey!

    Interesting layout,I like that it gives you a choice gaming wise. Do I go in or do I go up?

    I realise that the smaller building does this to but, with the addition of the tower, the larger one offers just a little bit more mystery imo.

    Very nice! Good use of the leftover stairway, it looks more natural on a larger building.

    the good things about the buildings, is you could get away with using them for some historical games too.

    That is actually one of my ‘themes’ f0r 2017 – being about to get more than one use for figures or scenery with different games.

    On a different topic I was asking about blue/pink insulation foam.
    It seems to be very much the best material for making hills and rocks and stuff but is not super easy to come by.

    So I had a look at cheap easy alternatives.
    I have found that Hobbycraft sell those green foam bricks for flower arranging.
    This big brick was a mere £1.00.

    Impressions?
    OMG you only have to look at it and it starts to crumble.
    It is a doddle to cut with a sharp knife.
    Due to its crumbly nature you can smooth sharp lines and edges with your finger just by gently rubbing it.
    So, easy to work with, but uber crunmbly.

    Here are some shots that show it and my test menhir.
    I cut it, smoothed it and then coated it with neat PVA using a very soft brush.
    Once dry (not long these things are like sponges) I did another coat.
    Then painted, ink washed and did some quick drybrushing.

    All in all not too bad looking and with the pva, much more durable.

    The Brick

    Stone with PVA on it

    Finished stone

    So it is a bit more fiddly to use, but here at least it is much more affordable, easier to get hold of and produces and acceptable result.

    Heh, that’s a funny coincidence, these past couple of days I’ve been experimenting with the very same material for the first time (for making rock formations and cave walls in my case). I believe it’s commonly known as Oasis. I saw (online) someone build a desert fort out of it, once.

    It is almost ridiculously soft – not in the sense that it “bounces back” like a sponge, but in the sense that even a slight bit of pressure will make the pores collapse permanently and leave an indentation. This makes it highly unsuitable for sharp detail, but very good for round shapes. A coating of PVA does indeed make it much firmer, but even when heavily watered down the PVA will only soak about a millimeter through the foam. Thus, one can easily peel off the PVA-stiffened layer to reveal more soft foam underneath. That might be a useful quality. I’ve started by cutting my Oasis foam into smaller blocks and PVA-stiffening the surfaces of these just so I can handle them with less care. Then I can start peeling and cutting the shapes I want out of them, and once I have the shapes I want I’ll coat the newly exposed surfaces with PVA again.

    Very nice. 🙂

    I still can’t get resin to work for me reliably, one time I’ll get a perfect cast, the next it comes out sticky all over.

    Drop me an e-mail, happy to help.

    Not yet, I am going to wait until the first three are done then paint them at the same time.

    So the plan for the 15mm website is to launch small and then build up if sales warrant.

    The plan is still to have three buildings, some huts and a campsite thingy pack.

    the last of the three buildings is done.

    It is, I think you will agree the most dull, but its lack of unique features makes it the most versatile, I suggest buying no less than 5 of these when you order!! 😀

    Second building has had a test cast, that is two of the three so far:

     

    They are monsters compared to the 6mm I do.

    My question is (I have been looking around but value your feedback) what sort of price would you expect to pay for these?

    I have to say, it is really nice that I found two figures that look just like Samantha and myself.

    “Erland”. That’s such an old-timer, tame-sounding name in modern Swedish culture, a bit like “Clement” or “Eugene” or “Vernon” in Anglophone culture 

    “Eydis” sounds cool though.

    Erland is Outsider or Foreigner

    This is a wickedly cool project to watch come to fruition. Cheers for taking time to chronicle all of it.

    Cheers, I find that it helps motivate me.
    Plus it is a good way to let people know what will be on the new website when it opens, though not all of this will on my 15mm site, and there is some stuff that I have not yet shown that will be on the site.

    oooooooh <mysterious>

    But, all that aside, glad you are liking it.

    😀
