Saxon Church Complete

I'm calling this project done. I really need to start painting my Vikings. It has some touch ups needed but I will work that into my painting schedule. I have added a fresco to the wall above the entrance door. All the windows have stained glass mounted inside them. The big pulpit window has a nicely detailed stained glass. As always let me know how she looks.

Late Roman or Saxon Church

I was not able to complete my church today but I was able to finish the majority of the construction though. I will post finished pictures later this week. I plan on using this as a Saxon church for my Vikings to raid in good ole England. I also plan on using for Late Roman/Arthurian Campaigns in the future.

There was a lot of effort put into this as each stone on the tower was cut out individually and glued on. The tower is a solid piece of styrofoam and the main structure are from regular styrofoam.

I still need to find some acetate so I can print out my stained glass windows. I also have a fresco I need to apply. I'm just debating the best way to do it.

WIP Status

I am currently working on a Saxon Church and it is quite a bit of work putting this piece together but it is coming along well. I hope to have something to show by the end of this weekend. Then I can start to actually paint my Vikings.

I finally finished my stone work on the Church, it was the most time consuming chore ever.

Viking House

I have recently finished my first Viking house. I used a technique from one of the many miniature bloggers. I tried using cereal box cardboard to mount craft popsicle sticks but found this is too flexible. I am now building a great hall using the sticks again but mounted on corrugated cardboard. I used the teddy bear fur technique for the roof and I like how it came out. I first painted PVA glue on the fur to get it in the right shape. I then spray painted the whole thing a dark brown and followed up by dry brushing to layers of lighter brown. Let me know what you think.
