Italian houses & ruins from S&S

OK, this is another set of resin building models (in 20mm scale, but could use for bigger figures) I bought from S&S models, perhaps two years ago but laid in a box since purchase, till I washed and primed them last week. I bought a single storey house that comes as four walls, two roof parts (all r...

Re: A house in Tigray province

Up date on my "conversion" by paint of two Anyscale model Scottish stone houses into two Tigrayan farm houses. I used a smooth masonry paint over the base primer coat (see earlier photos) of sprayed grey acrylic primer. This brick red gave me the base colour close to the red of the original picture ...

Re: Brummbar

L., Its a labour of love and quite a beautiful finished model. You did say you were bringing out your own in 20mm and 6mm didn't you? (quickly dive for cover in bunker..) ;) Hope you get time to enjoy playing with this model on tabletop. Wasn't this one a post Stalingrad development after the street...

Volksturm figures

Many moons ago, I was trying to contribute to theme of Berlin 1945, and how best to game it and what figures to use. There seemed to be many novel figure ideas for a German player: Hitler Jugend and Volksturm being two of these possibilities for street fighting behind barricades or house ot house fi...

Re: sidetracked? another project perhaps finished?

Thanks Gary for the reminder!
Thanks Grant for the stained glass window idea. Not sure I am good with those fiddly jobs like transfers! (I dont think I have stuck any on an Airfix like model in last 20 years but instead hand painted stars and roundels and the like!)
Thanks all for the feedback.
