With me not wanting to start any figures until tomorrow it has given me the opportunity to start catching up with the buildings I still have awaiting painting. The plan as mentioned is to paint at least 24 during the next three months. I have a bunch of recent(ish) releases by Leven Miniatures that I have yet to paint and as such these are the main targets for the coming months though I will be buying yet more of the other new releases as well.
This was previewed a few days ago but only the buildings and walls were painted. A second session was needed to do the rest. So about two and a half to three hours in total excluding prep work to get this tile painted up including the ground work. Nice and fast which is always a bonus.
I added one of the new trees to the base, something you will see more of as they are so cheap it would be silly not to add another point of interest to the tile. I plan to buy other shapes of trees from the same company next year.
The barn is FAR17 priced at £3 and as all the buildings on this tile was made to complement the two farmhouses FAR13 and FAR15 so you can mix and match these with the FAR20 series to get a real mix of looks over a number of tiles as you will see in the coming months.
FAR20C left and FAR20B right at the rear of the tile and the original FAR13 farmhouse. The two outbuildings are £2 each and £2.50 for the farmhouse. The walls are also by Leven in the accessory section, a full set costing just £3 and you get 4 straights and 4 corner sections. One of the straights has a traditional gate section.
Typical of Leven the detail is great the structures believable and demands a fairly low level of prep and as mentioned paints up really quickly. This time it was dry brushing whilst the next one I will probably ink to show the difference.
