When does a house become a home?

When it has that 'lived in' look.

I have been painting many of the terrain pieces from Terrain Week for the packaging artwork, etc.

Just in case anyone was freaking out about seeing only pink, white and light brown :-)  I was thinking of putting a series of images in a slide show form, or something like that, just in case people wanted a reference.

Obviously, many of us have already painted terrain pieces like this before!  It is pretty straightforward.

Using that craft paint is the biggest key, since it flows so well over very absorbent surfaces, such as the balsa wood roof!  It also covers the pink foam well, like the chimney.

Nothing like a Fantasy setting or even D & D with a set if building like this!  

Once the original set of videos are done, sent, etc.  I want to expand on them.  I want to make Inns, Blacksmith shops, and so on.

I hope you have fun with yours!!

No mailbox, though...


  1. That's looking great. Given the other damage to the house, it would have been good to have a few slipped or damaged roof tiles too

    1. Thanks! I mention that in the video, but there would not have been time to show what to do with the rest of the structure. As soon as you have holes... you see the inside :-)

      I am going to be making a video (post KS) of a burned out building!
