Victorian Terrace - Completed !

Well, its been a long time coming! I think I started this back in April, so that's been about 5 months off and on getting this made, the longest I think I have ever done on a single terrain piece.

I have learned a lot from the process; using MDF to make the structure, seeing how the darn stuff can warp, then how to fix that. Using DAS clay to add an etched brick surface, endless card tile cladding, and the wonders of electricity in the lighting rig.

 But I think the effort has been worth while... I just need to convince myself to start the next one now! I'll need several more to complete the city scene...

 But for now, I hope you enjoy the pictures...

Victorian terrace



Rear yards ... I'd still like to add a bit more detritus...

Gable end ... I'd still like to add some ads and posters and such..

Street scenes...



Ripper Street?

Saved, in the nick of time...

Lady Luck, by Gaslamp...

Nocturnal shots

Sorry, hard to focus with the low light...
So that's one down , 4-5 more to go... oh well, at least its a start!

  4. Outstanding! I'm quite in awe of your modelling skills. Will my werewolves be allowed inside, or are they banished to the backyard? :-)

    the pictures with the figures are an amazing addition.

  17. Top banana old bean. I do like the curtains! Maybe you should try something a little less challenging next like St Paul's or Parliament.

  18. Superb stuff Scott. I have been working lots of hours lately with no hobbies and gaming, but this truly warms my heart. Such endeavour and persistence against overwhelming odds and a fantastic centrepiece to show for it. An inspiration.
