I'm still on my break from the Haitian buildings, this time, although still on the buildings, I've crossed the pond to the Hapsburg Empire of the 1600's.I wanted some Austrian style farm building, for my Ottomans to pillage on their way to Vienna.
The first building is quite obviously a barn, but its no mere barn in fact it started life as a Warbases, Eastern European barn. I wanted my farm to look a little unkempt and worn out, so painted in up in various shades of grey, to give it that aged look.
This models had to be based, because of the ramp, I'd have snapped that off in no time if I hadn't, so I added a few scenic items to the base, barrels, sacks and a rack.
I don't usually paint the inside of buildings, but as I glued the door partially open I thought it best.
The second building is also from Warbases and is sold as Easteren European House 1, again I kept to the dark dingy colour scheme.
Which I think works well?
I hadn't planned on painting the inside, but as I painted this and the barn together, before I realised it, I'd started it!
For the last house, I went with its been looked after a little more than the others. A painted door and shutter, on a newer browner wood.
I'm not sure If I'm keen on the colour of the roof? The tile strips were also bought from Warbases, but I'm just not sure..
This also can be purchased from Warbases under the name, Eastern European House 3
And guess what, I painted the inside of this one too???
So there you go, the start of my Donnybrook Vienna 1683 housing boom!
