The roof is finished on the Old Crow. Next up windows, then paint.
Terrain. This set of walls gives my terrain set, small pieces that accent the larger pieces giving low areas of obstruction and cover around the battlefield. They are separate from the bigger pieces to allow them to have flexibility from games to game. I used the balcony sections from the Games Workshop modular terrain with lots of rubble and plants. I especially like the door that has been hastily laid across a breach best seen on the left side of the first picture.
Themed terrain. all these terrain pieces came together to have a strong industrial feel. This was helped by the very cool steam train bits that i was able to use. The long pieces of pipe on several of the pieces provide low cover and help stretch the pieces horizontally across the board. While most of the terrain is low, the double small building and the last piece offer some interesting height variation.
A few more minis to fill the village.

Also, a Reaper water bearer from their Zodiac series, and another towsfolk with a broom. The Reaper townsfolk are a joy to paint, lots of character, without being too fiddly.
Rehabbing part 2.
I broke all of the glue joins and re-glued them. I also added this 1/8” brick line to the foundation, to pick that side up. That seems to have straightened this one out. It was looking pretty dire, might of had to pitch this and start over.
These two pieces of terrain were some of the first I made with the Games Workshop modular kits. They were odds and ends left overs from some larger buildings I had constructed. The corner piece doesn’t make a lot of sense as the balcony and door come out to the building. I made most of the balconies from both pieces out of plastruct diamond plate with buttresses from the GW sprue as supports. The sand bags are green stuff squished between thumb and index finger into a rectangle and scored with a knife for the seem. There were 134 of them (some have snapped off). A lot of the railing on the tower was left off because I had intended to build bridge between pieces. That has yet to happen.
To illustrate a point I made in my last post. thestonecuttersguild has some amazing terrain. Here is a couple of pictures of the streets where he shows off many levels of foliage to bring his world to life.
