The Walls of the Chapel

I’ve had this building kit for sometime and for a long time it has been in a box, constructed and with a black undercoat. I gave the walls a basecoat of Citadel Base: Zandri Dust.

I wasn’t too impressed with the coverage over the black undercoat, I certainly had better results in the past with the old Foundation Paint range when painting over black.

These days though I am much more likely to use a white undercoat than a black one, and coverage is one of those reasons.

See workbench feature on the Warhammer Chapel.

Warhammer Chapel

I was lucky to receive one of the new Warhammer plastic buildings for a present (thanks Simon). I have mentioned in previous posts how impressed I was with the new buildings.

It was the chapel.

In the “A4” sized box you get two sprues with all the parts and extras on them.

One part I did particularly like was the clock.

This looks like it will be quite a substantial kit, as the plastic parts are quite thick compared to other plastic building kits I have made in the past. There will also be quite a few extra parts which I will be able to use on other models as well.

I hope we see more building kits in the future, it would be nice to see some more accompanying buildings as well as Orc or Elven constructions as well.

Looking forward to making this one up.

Saw the Warhammer Buildings in the “flesh” and the Chaos ruins as well…

Yesterday I popped into Games Workshop in Cribbs Causeway and managed to have a really good look at the new Warhammer buildings. The shop had constructed theirs and had given it a black undercoat. They had constructed the fortified manor house, which consists of the tower, the chapel and a joining section.

It is a very nice model, however it was smaller than I thought it would be, but there are some really nice details.

It looks like it will be nice to paint, but may need some texture to bring out the fact it is in fact stone and not plastic!

The details are nice and include swivel guns, skulls and has a range of options.

I also had a good look at the chaos temple ruins which are very nice and look like they can be used equally with Warhammer Fantasy Battle and Warhammer 40000. You get quite a bit of ruin and I personally thought it wasn’t bad value for £15. I think I would have preferred it in resin over plastic and like the buildings would benefit from a stone texture.

Overall I was impressed with both plastic kits.

Warhammer buildings will be released (in the UK) on the 26th May

The Warhammer buildings which I mentioned in a previous posting will be released (in the UK) on the 26th of May as a whole box set costing £75.

The first release for the new Warhammer Scenery, this set gives you a fantastic amount of scenery ot use in your games of Warhammer. This set contains the following items: 1 Fortified Manor, 1 Watchtower, 1 Chapel and 3 sets of Walls and fences. Not only does this save you £27 off buying the items individually, you also get the Watchtower and Chapel over a month before those items are released by themselves!!!

I do like these buildings and I am very tempted.

Warhammer Fantasy Plastic Buildings

These are the upcoming new Warhammer Fantasy Buildings which Games Workshop will be releasing at some point in the future. There seem to be three buildings and there will also be a release of other terrain such as hills, fences and graveyards.

This is a boxed set looking like it contains both buildings, lots of other scenery and even the hills.

These are the other two buildings, which will be available as separate boxed sets.

I do quite like these, they don’t really fit in with my Steve Barber models, but they are nice.
