What materials did you use? This miniature gatehouse model I have made using mainly balsa wood and card. The only parts that I have not made from scratch are the axe, the door knocker and the grotesque (not gargoyle). The roof sections are made using individual pieces of card to give a realistic slate tile effect. The windows are pieces of clear acetate, with the diamond pattern lead lights drawn on. All the paint work is done using acrylic paints and the natural components are made using static grass, modelling flock and modelling sponge. The wood pile is made using natural twigs and the pebbles are also natural small pebbles (painted). The mushrooms are all handmade using epoxy clay, the ground is textured using wall filler and the walls are textured using fine sand. The model is fully suitable for 28-32mm scale wargaming, or can be just an ornament! Model size - Base length - 24.8cm or 9 3/4" Base width - 15.5cm or 6 1/16" Base thickness - 10mm or 3/8" Total height - 22.2cm or 8 3/4" (base to tip of grotesque)
