Smallville



No, I'm not talking about the TV-series of that name (although it is reasonably entertaining) but about a small medieval town that I have bought at Ebay. You have certainly seen it before as I have myself many times - it is from PMC games and at first I was very reluctand to buy it. The pictures on ebay are not the best, and I have never seen them in reality, so...

Well, After months of thought-wrestling I've finally re-invested the revenue of an ebay sale, and I was really surprised when the parcel arrived. The buidlings are of very good quality, look the part and are, especially at this price, more than a bargain. I've aired them a few nights in the garage, thought, as they obviously were packed right after painting. Now the smell seems to be gone, but the looks remains. Enough said, now see for yourself:

PMC-games medieval town - laid out on my new gaming mat. The river is from litko (painted by me)





Here is the same view with some background added...


... a detail-picture of the mill (I'll probably add some water-effects on the wheel later)...


...and a panorama-view:


All roofs can be lifted off to place miniatures within the buildings, although there are no interior details (I for my part really don't miss them). Some more pictures of the scenery:




Perry Miniatures Knights preparing to defend Smallville





As you can see from the pictures, the buildings are a little bit on large side for the Perry figures. But they are just fine for Fireforge, which perfectly fits my new project planned for 2013 (more about that some other time).


I couldn't fight the urge to do a little photoshop with the pictures, but I have not altered any of the buildings. In my opinnion, they are really good. Now I'm looking forward for the first game of medieval street-fight.

Have a nice weekend, thanks for visiting,
Tobi

  1. Many thanks, Willie! Actually, I was a little to fast with the "publish"-button, I've added some more pictures.

    Now I finally have no excuse not to paint those Crusader and Fireforge Knights - and some civilians. Smallville needs inhabitants... Best regards, Tobi

  3. Those look really good, Tobi! I agree that the mill could use some water effects. I've heard that Liquitex Gel Medium makes a really good water effect, especially when you want to make waves and splashes. Check out Terran Scapes' youtube channel for some really great tutorials on how to use it:

  4. Reminds me of a lot of towns in video game RPGs like Elder Scrolls and Fable. Very nice. The river and water mill are nice touches.
