Leicester Hospital Build: Roofs on
Just a quick post to share my build progress. I've built the roofs for all the main buildings. The middle main building has a parapet roof so its completely different to the others. I have built it so that there is room for figures to be positioned around the roof. All the roofs come off so it will be possible to position figures within the buildings (on both floors the ground and 1st)
In reality this is a three storey building but in order to accommodate that the building would have been so big it would have looked grossly out of scale therefore the buildings are all two storey. The two end turrets will have crenelations or something on top (the left one has some crudely cut ones just balanced on it at the moment for test fitting purposes.
I now need to make all the chimneys and bits for the roofs before we get to the decoration stage.
I am terrible at painting buildings so I intend to cheat and use my favourite terrain medium, which is printed brick textures. I have used them before on walls and other bits and the effect on the war gaming table is (to me anyway) very satisfying and neat. The bonus is it makes a build much quicker and the building more robust as paint etc wont be rubbed off by handling.
Thanks for looking.
