I have been doing a lot of casting and building with my Hirst Arts molds lately in preparation for SPDM4. This small fieldstone cottage is my latest creation.
It painted up quick and easy with the airbrush using assorted Golden High Flow Acrylics and a dry brush of their Heavy Body Titan Buff. When it comes to painting large areas and terrain I prefer these more economical paints over all others I have tried. I highly recommend the High Flow line for those that airbrush or want to make large amounts of washes.
The roof is removable and ready to be furnished incase I ever want to play Mordheim or another skirmish type game.
Here you can see the different materials used. Plaster cast in the Hirst Arts molds, wooden coffee stir sticks, a few pieces of square balsa, some scrap card stock and vacuum formed plasticard for the shingles on the roof.
A beautiful model!
Great job! I would love to see more of your efforts with the Hirst Arts builds.
damn thats amazing, i would luv to see u paint knights of rivendell
excellent cottage, seems like that could quickly be adapted to Rohan buildings for LOTR/Hobbit.
Looking great! Can you please point out where you got those shingles for the roofing?
Gorgeous job. Could you give the details of how you put it together? The base coat, the drybrush coat(s), the colours for the individual stone highlights? Was the final titan buff put on top of the individual stones, or below it? I'm still new to the painting game, so I find it incredibility helpful to get the paint names and painting sequence.

Damn. Amazing job!
I really like the color tones with the stones and the subtle color differences between the stones themselves.
Also, nice job on the casting. An awesome project.
