Fantasy Village PART IV: Merchant house finished

Hello folks,

I continue painting my medieval village project for Warhammer Empire or Renaissance.




So here it is, part IV, a Merchant house, by the now defunct ( I think) Tabletop Workshop, in plastic, with a few modifications.

The building itself is quite simple, but nice, it can be enhanced with some bits here and there... I added a chimney, in plastic, from Warhammer Mannorhouse, I used also some greenstuff in order to hide the gaps of the thatched roof, and the joints of the structure, which is snap fit, so there are some ugly holes If you build the house "out of the box".   There is also a wooden crane with a small wooden structure in the right, from Games Workshop laketown house, in plastic, as well as the signal post (or whatever is called in English the wooden structure over the door) with and old Bretonnian decal of a deer.

The painting was simple too, but effective, it was painted mainly with airbrush paints by Ammo Mig and Vallejo model air.  Then gloss varnish was applied all over the model, in order to protect the acrylic paints from the oil washes that came later. Some streaks of grime,  rust, dust etc give the creamy colour some chromatic variation to break the monotony of the house.

After all that work, I drybrushed the roof, and the wooden areas, painted the details and finished!
Another quick & easy scenery model finished.

Now there is only one last house to paint and the "village" will be ready to be based, flocked, add the walls...

I hope you like it !



  1. First class building, congrats!

  2. Very nicely detailed! I think the range is available through warlord games, they do go around absorbing smaller manufacturers!

    1. Thanks Lain, I got mine through ebay, but then checked Warlord’s site and you are right !


  3. Fantastic additions to the merchants house Jose; the chimney and the sign I especially like. The painting of course, is also first class.

    What caveadsum1471 is correct: I just received the Chapel and Stable a couple of weeks ago. I don't know if they are producing the range or just have huge reserves of the products but the buildings are still available.

    1. Many thanks mate ! Yes, he is right, now they are under Warlord Games :)
