Exteriors CompletedI finished obsessing over the exterior frames of my four buildings. You can see earlier progress with my base-coats here in Part 4. I wanted to have each building interesting and so I chose a theme for each that I hope to carry through-out the painting process when I begin to decorate the building interiors. Right now the two large and two small buildings are good enough for general game-play. The interiors are just in case and also for my OCD.
In these series of photos I try to maintain this sequence for each building; corner view, front door, right side, back door, left side.
Large Building A - The Nice One
|A thing of beauty! Rent or buy now!|
|All of the door knobs are actually|
tiny pronged fasteners.
|I don't show it here but all of the chimneys|
are painted darker towards the top.
|The "Dutch door" at the back is|
walnut and chestnut.
|Windows that peer into separate|
Large Building B - The Legacy Fire
|Something unfortunate happened here?|
|The front door and window are|
boarded up as a result of an old fire.
The building is in poor shape.
|This is the back door.|
|All of the windows are boarded up.|
|Back of the building.|
Small Building A - Just Old
|This design has two different exterior paints.|
|This building has a porch entrance|
and a side entrance. Once I get the
foundations painted I'll demonstrate
the arrangement better.
|I was sort of sloppy with the white paint|
but the effect turned out okay;
looks sort of like glass to me.
I'll change it soon enough.
|Chimney here shows the darker top near|
the soot. I'm debating making all of my
chimneys taller to be more accurate
but risk becoming more fragile for transport.
|The effective back of the building.|
|Bonus view! I like the emerald tiling|
against the yellow and red.
Small Building B - Squatter's House
|Front door and a large window. Old wood?|
|These windows peer into a single room.|
|There is no rear entry way.|
|Ack. Tsk. Boarded up window.|
We all know what that means; a sure
indicator that this is a hang-out for cultists!
