Building Medieval Docks #3

I just got the last of the Hirst Arts building done for the Medieval Docks.

Next step will be to paint all this...

Building Medieval Docks #2

With yesterday's bits dried this morning I've managed to make a bit more progress. Most of the walls are in place and two of the sets of steps down into the docks are completed. 

I've added a couple of arches for underground streams. These will appear to join up with the waterways in the rest of the city.

The remaining wall bit dried a lot quicker than I expected so I got the last part of the wall completed. 

Only problem now is that I wanted to build the wall up a bit higher, but I've run out of basic blocks!

Building Medieval Docks #1

It's been a little while since I've done anything with Hirst Arts. Anyway I decided it was time to extend my medieval city.

I've started working on a dockyard. The idea is to have a recessed 2ft x 1ft section with wooden jetties, small boats and water effects.

The first job was to build some base boards. I took two of the TTCombat MDF boards I've been using and turned them upside down. I put the boats on, tried out a few blocks and drew a plan.

Next I needed to build up an area where the docks will fit in with the rest of the city. It took me quite a while to work out how I was going to do this, but eventually I found that blue high density polystyrene worked best.

Tonight, with all that in place I've added the cobblestones to the top of that. I put it in place with some of the existing boards in attempt to get everything lined up. Unfortunately I am still going to have to sand the edges in some places to make it fit.

Finally tonight I started work on the walls of the docks. In order to keep them straight I'm building these up on an acetate sheet. I'll have to lift these off when they've dried and the they should slot in place nicely. Maybe that'll be tomorrow...

I've been playing a bit of Warpath Firefight recently as Plague and fancied a change. I realised a while back that I almost had enough Enforcers to make a decent sized Firefight force. All I was short of was a few extra basic Enforcers. One box of the plastics later and I had enough. Only thing left was to paint them.

So here they are. The remainder of my Enforcers now finished. Well ok, not all, but almost all. I've  only got 2 of the big flyers left to do.

I've also started work on my medieval city's dockyard...

Medieval Market

A  couple of months ago I posted photos of the "Torture Cage" from Iron Gate Scenery. When I bought this I also bought some of their market place scenery, a few stalls and barrows. I've just had some fun putting together a little vignette to show these off using some of my other scenery and models.

Now I just need a game that these will fit in with, because I don't think they're right for Frostgrave!
