Big Buildings!

Back in January I made an effort to get through the MDF mountain (more of a hillock really), assembling a number of kits and painting most of them too. I was stalled with these 2 Timeline buildings as I needed something to tile the roofs with, so they sat unfinished while I searched the web (in vain) for what I wanted. In the end I decided to just get on and make my own, using the time-honoured card strip method. They're not perfect, but they'll do and are better than the standard flat MDF roofs.


I added some texture to the walls to cover up the construction slots and joins, and painted everything in shades to roughly match my existing 28mm buildings. I decided to 'hinge' the doors with insulation tape as I didn't want them fixed in place, but wasn't up to anything more complicated. The are no features inside as, for me, wargame building interiors are best kept simple and clear, as figure bases are oversized anyway.


I added the usual bit of texture around the bases and declared them finished. I like these kits a lot. They're big buggers, but should look good on the table, especially for skirmish games.
