German church

Another German commission and this one follows on from a previous job. The building has no base as the client will be doing that himself. I've got another four normal houses to finish off (this week) then it'll be on to some AWI builds for him.

The spire was drawn in Rhino and 3d printed on an Anycubic Photon. The z axis needs a bit of tweaking as there are some strata lines in the print and I'll sort that out later this week. It was given a quick sand to remove the lines, primed and painted with copper paint and given a slight patina.

More German builds with a slight twist

Only in the fact that they’re not painted this time as the client will be doing that himself.

Slightly different construction for the intact house as everything could be stuck on whereas normally the roof goes on after the walls are painted so I can stick the windows in without risking paint getting on them. 

Quite pleased with the ruin. It’s been simplified a bit, otherwise I’d be there for ages getting the details right. I think (hope) it’s a good balance between accuracy and detail.

Napoleonic building base

My German/Austrian building commissions are quite popular and here's another one (from a set of three) that's complete.

One foot square to represent a village, the others will be the same size but different layouts.

Not much else to say really, 28mm Austrian for scale.

Some 'Sleepy Hollow' builds

Finished off a few buildings for a 'Sleepy Hollow' commission. They are mainly for the AWI but needed to have an earlier appearance in general, hence the Dutch frontage.

No bases for these as the client will base them himself and there's a courthouse and blockhouse to make for the same 'batch'.

OSHIRO webshop!

I've not been idle, but I have been forgetful in 'blogging' recently :-( Plenty to come to make up for it though :-)

After many years of being stuck in the dark ages OSHIRO now has a proper shopping trolly and the link is below.

Thank you to all those with the patience to email me for your orders and I hope you continue to just 'click and pay'.

We do have some new items that are in the relevant sections as well and more to follow in the New Year.
