|Wood block house with square dowel for chimneys|
|Cottages - the thatched roofs were sanded round|
The same approach was used painting the block colours and once dry painting in the windows. I have been using cheap acrylic paint I have left around. Once all try I use oil-based pastels to add the final touches and attempt to give the impression stone work or roof thatching.
The buildings are scaled to 25-30mm but still work with the 40mm paper soldiers once on the wargaming table. The big house and highland cottages were painted and pastel work completed in one evening. This included a coat of PVA glue to seal the buildings.

I am not sure if these are as effective as the warehouses completed last weekend. I need to practice my stone work effects a bit more this weekend as I build some walls and a bridge.
