Fortified Manor House

I've done a bit more of the Manor House now. I plan on doing the tower and the rest in the reverse order paint wise. It'll be so much easier to paint the stone before the plaster parts so that it'll be easier to cover the mistakes as I go along! For some reason I completely forgot to do the chimney when doing the bricks but I'll just do that when I do the rest of the stonework on the details.

Let me know your thoughts!

OWh, that's really nice!
Very nice work on the walls, you've captured the worn look the walls an old manor should have! *Thumbs up*

Personally, I'm more of a fan of either orange'ish or dark grey roof tiles, but the dark red is starting to look good aswell.

Good luck with the rest of it, keep it up!

PS: When will we get to see more of Be'lakor, Amador and the rest? *winks*

Also, did you have that huge battle against your friend's Vampire Counts yet?

Thanks Noeste, glad you like it. I really like the red roof tiles although I did notice the tone seems slightly off in the photos. Red's my favourite colour though and I wanted an excuse to paint it! :D
My huge battle is on Sunday. 5000pts. My army is interesting as I'm having to borrow some of the minis so it's kind of a mix of what I have, what I want and what I was able to get a hold of. Looking forward to it though. Should be an interesting work-out for the Devotees! :D

Nothing wrong with red *smiles*
And it looks good, just voiced my personal preference *grins* Not intended as any criticism!

Best of luck on sunday! Although, my experience says that using an incoherently painted army, usually makes the Gods of Dice and Tabletop Gaming, turn their evil gaze upon you... And with borrowed minis aswell.. *Winks*

Looking forward to the battle report!
Is the battle part of that campaign in your gaming group, or just a friendly game, if you don't mind me asking.

Again, best of luck, and keep up the good work with that brush of yours!

Thanks, I'm going to need all the luck I can get! Yeah, the incoherent looking force will anger the Tabletop Gaming Gods but I think I lost the support of the Dice Gods a while back! :D
This battle is just a friendly. Campaign should be going again from next week I'd hope!
