Bruges Tower


What it's already October?? My gosh how time just flies! I've been painting, but just not fast enough it would appear. I have about three units on my desk in various stages of completion so I will have some more material soon.

This piece is a Hovel 25mm Bruges Tower. They say it's 25mm, but I think it's more between 20mm and 25mm. I love Hovel terrain for it's quaintness, style and feel of the them in spite of the sculpts not being the best and the tremendous amount of clean up needed on them.

I wish I could paint faster as there are so many things I want to do!!:-(

Photobucket is still all screwed up! Once you have sized a pic you can't even change it any more! They used to be great, but their new system is a colossal failure! I'm so frustrated with them! I hope they go back to their old system or at least try and fix the new one at the very least.

Thanks for viewing.:-)

  2. Great painting on the tower Christopher. Did you put it on a board or something? I like Hovels as well for larger scale games. They do not take up so much space but do look good.

    1. Thanks Michael! No it's free standing. I just added the terrain bits around it to spice up the pic some.:-)

  6. That is a tremendous piece of terrain; beautifully realised.

  7. What a fantastic job you've made on this! Hovels do tend to be a little small IMO, whatever size building you buy.
    Why not try out Googles photo workshop, I've never had any problems with it, all your pics should already be in there.

  8. I like hovels too - good price but boy are they a pain to clean up!

    Nice work on this tower.

  9. Excellent work, Christopher - I really like the surrounding groundwork as well. I agree, the Hovels range is really very good and quite characterful. I'll have to seriously think about this tower as its both a significant model but does not take up a large footprint on the table (always a concern in 'big battalion' games).

  10. Hi Christopher,
    this tower looks very cool. It did a very good job on the table you prepared yesterday for the two great games we have been able to game at your home.
    Thank you for your hospitality. I´ve enjoyed it (again) very much.
    Cheers

  15. Christopher, that's a really lovely tower. I really like the Hovel's Dutch/Belgium range - they have a great application from anything around about 1650 to the present day, I guess. I love the detail that you really only see once you have started painting them, from the lintels, to the brickwork surrounding the windows, to the shutters. I love the gable windows in the roof on this model. You've done a terrific job on this - it looks very fine indeed.

    1. Thank very much Sidney! I agree completely in that anything after 1650 they really hit the mark and in particular their ACW/Western stuff is superb!!

  16. Beautiful piece of terrain. I think scale for terrain can be "close enough" sometimes, but again this is just too lovely a piece not to have on the table. Best, Dean

  18. Thank you kindly Captain. The road is from JR Miniatures that I repainted as I didn't like the colour it came in.
