Finished Tutorial and more!

Hi folks.

I just finished my tutorial on Western Building construction (posted above as "Tutorial" page.) Hope you like it.

Also: Received my Pig Iron system troopers! Cool! Now I have to finish their tank...

AND: Bought a big scary dinosaur for my HOTT reptiles! He's going to get heavily converted, repainted, and generally hacked to bits! What fun!

So much to do...


  1. Very nice tutorial. It actually reminds me a little of how I made my Rohan building. I did wider spacing for the balsa planks, and no curtains on the windows ;-) Oh and teddybear fur for thatch roof. But other than that very similar,which reminds me I need to make a couple more to make a 'village'.
    Keep up the good work!

  2. Thanks, Scott. What did the signwriting on your Rohan building read? "G. Wormtongue, esq. Poisons and Schemes"? "Eomund and Son, Serious Frown Consultancy Ltd."?....

  3. Thanks, Christopher. I hope you find it useful!

  4. LOL, I never thought to put up such signs, but they are both wonderful suggestions ;-)

  5. You got a great little town there...the response you got on it is incredible.

  6. Thanks, Captain Richard.

    You're right - the response has been mindblowing! When the first pictures went online, thanks to Roly Hermans and Greg Simmonds, I knew people would be a little impressed - it's a nice model and I put in a hell of a lot of work. But I had no idea it would be so well received! It's been only ten days since I started this blog and I am well past 2000 hits so far (900+ of them in the last 29 hours, since posting the tutorial!)

    A huge thank you to everybody. I'm a very happy Colonel!
