More Completed Buildings...

G'day folks, more buildings finished.
Once again they are card/paper/foamboard creations. They are all based on free to download buildings found here:

Here are my adapted versions of these card models- I have added a number of extras which are not on the originals.

This model was a Dave Graffam freebie on Wargames Vault- a brilliant thing to download as it is a layered document with heaps of options in terms of textures etc.
I have changed it by using a Scalescenes slate roof tile set (found the originals a bit "cartoony"), and giving it an interior with floorboards & plaster wall textures from http://www.cgtextures.com/.
It is based on foamcore with some flock, tufts & other bits.














The old Presbytery was downloaded from a French Designers website. The original is a fairly simple model which I have "upgraded". Again I departed from the original roof which had skylights & very tall chimneys. I have used a slate tile texture from cgtextures, cut down the chimneys and built some card guttering which was adapted from another free model. This has also had an interior created with a removable first floor, wallpapered walls, parquet first floor & coloured tiles on ground floor. I may at some time put it on a scenic base, because I think it needs a curving drive and some sort of formal garden - we'll see.







This freebie was from Scalescenes, excellently designed by John Wiffen. It was originally on raised piers as a railway goods shed, but I have remodelled it with steps instead of a ramp. I also found an excellent internal for the roof from cgtextures. A useful little building for a Normandy town or perhaps a farm outbuilding.






Card models don't have to be flimsy & insubstantial, & with a bit of craftiness can look just as good as their resin cousins- and cost a good deal less. Hope you enjoyed these & that they give you some ideas for your own tabletop terrain.

Cheers,
Sarge.
