Cheers.

It's taken time, and a bit of cash (although nothing too outrageous, other than paying to have my Neo Tyrannis buildings come pre-painted), but it really is remarkably straightforward. Painting the resin buildings was probably the hardest part.

I can't win. I ordered some 30mm thick polystyrene for hill building a while ago on eBay, and was sent 50mm instead.

I finally got around to placing a new order elsewhere, this time for 25mm, and was sent 75mm.

Finally back to work. The balance of my Neo Tyrannis buildings arrived yesterday. As frustrating as the process became, they were worth the wait.

I had forgotten that my planned double block for the Koenig Tower had space at the ends I was going to need to do something with. I decided to put in some large water features. I had lots of clear blue window plastic left over, which made it pretty easy. Show here with some other blocks to really give a sense of the size.

I've had the next section mapped out for years, but it's nice to discover that everything actually fits when you lay out the actual parts. Unfortunately, I found I've misplaced one of the MDF block sections, but that will be easy enough to replace.

This is the cityscape I had planned when I first backed Neo Tyrannis. I subsequently decided I was expanding it (there's one wide row still to be added).

Progress. Nearly sixteen square feet of city. Need to finish off the Lang Residential block, and my Polyversal Kickstarter spaceport will fit into one of the gaps once it arrives.

Looking great - the kind of table I'd love to play on!

Yup. A table suitably epic

So many minis in transit or pending orders, but nothing here for me to paint, so I'm planning to do some of my rural buildings this weekend.

I did indeed get around to starting work on my village buildings (all resin, from Gamecraft). They have been lying around for quite a while, and I haven't been at all motivated to do anything with them. However, they were required to fill up some space on my table recently, and they did a pretty good job, albeit looking a bit stark in their white, unpainted state.

They are beginning to look much better. I'm very happy with the bluestone effect on the barn, although I now wish I'd done the roof in a stronger contrasting style. The facades on the Tudor style buildings are an absolute pain to paint, and my work is quite ugly up close, but decent enough from a distance.
