This is my Grand Manner Indian Longhouse. The main structure is done and I'll begin the landscape tomorrow.

The house was painted strictly by drybrushing various browns, tans and greys over the black undercoat.
I use a golden brown watercolor wash over some of it and I am happy with the results.
This was a practice run, as I am getting ready to paint the Hartwell tavern. I wanted to make sure the technique would work.
I'm pleased with the results and can begin work on the Tavern shortly.

Exceptional texture by the maker and exceptional paint by the gamer. A win!

Your painting of the model is superb. The bark looks like the real thing.

Very realistic, Bill.

Beautiful texturing brought out by a very nice paint job.

But pardon my ignorance for saying this: for a longhouse it's not very long, is it?

for a longhouse it's not very long, is it?

Actually, Longhouse was my term and is probably incorrect.
I used the term to generalize Iroquois structures, since that's what they are commonly referred to.

I think GM makes a larger version that is a true Longhouse.
