Hi All,

   As I've mentioned earlier, my gaming group is looking into moving into Back of Beyond, and I wanted to set my Warlord army in the Tibetan-Qinghai border region. Not finding any suitable ready made buildings, I took a stab at trying to build something myself.  Here is the first test building, a Tibetan home:


And here is an example of the real thing:


Feedback and suggestions for any improvements before I build more would be much appreciated.  A few additional photos are on the blog:

Thanks!

Chris

Love it. Only suggestion would be basing them, as they look like they've grown out of the ground.

Very nice Hypno

..and the towel you put under it gives a very good terrain effect too (although usually I'm not a fan of terrain made from towels).

Looks very good indeed. Well done. Agree with the earlier comment about a base though.  Excellent.

Thanks Everyone! I agree that a base would be good.  I was thinking of sculpting a little hill out of foam for the village when everything is ready, so hopefully that would improve the final look.

Looks great, can't wait until you tackle some scenery as so much of the effect of those houses is the ranked effect up the hillsides!

Modular houses to slot into hillsides with standard-size rectangular slots cut into them, maybe?

I hadn't thought of making it modular, but that's a great idea. Thanks!

I have a book with detailed elevations and plans for a variety of Nepalese/Tibetan houses (among the strange references I collect). If you want I can scan and send them to you or just post images here.

Wow! I didn't even know such a reference existed. If you don't mind posting some images here, that would be fantastic. Thanks so much!!!

It took me a little while to find the book, but here's a link to the album.

There's about twelve scans there of 3 different house types.
