Hi all,
To celebrate the release of the new Warhammer edition I started a Vampire Counts army. To go with an army (and a new system) I decided I needed some new terrain. To start with I made an old shed using a template from White Dwarf 140 (yeah I'm getting old).
Because Vampires and graveyards go together well. My second project was a graveyard. Hope you enjoy the pics, if anyone is interested I could post some WIP pics at a later time.

Woah, great job. I love the shingles on the roofs, nice weathering I see going on there. By the way, the axe for the shed was a really nice touch as well ;)

Didn't even notice the Axe, theres so much going on, yet its so flawless :D
As he said, great weathering, the tiling is amazing (the roof, the wood, and stepping stones)

I just had to come look at it again :) I showed a few mates when they came over aswell, all most impressed.

+Rep :)

Really good work. Nice hand cut roofing. I assume that is done with thick card. Nice use of the 40k street light in the graveyard, you just need a big old vulcher sitting on it now :)

Have some +rep.

Hey all,
Thanks for all the great comments. I especially like that you noticed the axe, it was a quick finishing touch to bring the building to live. I just more or less finished my third building for this set. I wanted a big half timbered house. It was a little more work then expected and I learned quite a few things I should do different next time :)
Anyways here is the picture:


A for the previous buildings. I indeed used a lamppost from Cities of Death, but I cut of all the power cables to make it look a bit more gothic/fantasy.
The roofing is cut from thick card. It takes a lot of work to cut all the shingles and even more work to glue them in place.

The tiles on the graveyard have been cut from the plastic packaging of a modular movement tray set.

Unfortunately I did not have a vulture available, but it would have been a nice touch indeed. I'm considering buying the Warhammer Giant to get some of those cool details, but then I would be left with a giant I don't really want (and I don't really like the model only the extra's).

Weathering on the graveyard was done with a combination of inks and a few dabs of weathering powder (finally a chance to test it).

As for my Vampire Counts, I'm experimenting a bit on painting my zombies. I haven't quite worked out how I want to base them, so never mind the fact that the bases are not quite finished.


I have also finished my general, a vampire countess from Coolminiornot:


Anyways this is a scenery thread, so I should probably stick to scenery. My next project will take a few weeks at least as I work out how to make barrels (to dress up the inn above) and as I work out what my next building will be.

Once again thanks for all the comments, I'll post more when more is finished...
