The 'yard' had an undercoat of a dark brown, highlighted by a lighter brown and finally another highlight of a sandy colour.
The photograph to the right shows the front facade with a figure (of unknown origin) that is the closest I can find to some sort of of clerical chap.
He's a bit diminutive compared to the more usual "28mm" figures, but fir for purpose imo.
The tower is about 13.5inches tall (35cm) and the footprint is about 9"x20" (22.5cm x 50cm). The height to the ridge of the church proper is about 6" (15cm) above the courtyard which in turn is two layers of foamboard above table level.
The top two levels of the tower are not glued in place (for ease of storage).
|View of the other side (before I remembered to add the tower)|
|Rear view (again, sans tower!)|
|Close up of lean-to - foundry figure to the right|
|The top of the tower|
|lots of space for figures despite all the 'bits'.|
The only scenic piece that I'd previously made that wasn't included was a confessional.
Despite a confessional being an integral part of any Catholic church I omitted simply because of space, but I did manage to get in a few pews (all cardboard); a font (foamboard and bbq skewers); a lectern (matchsticks and card); an altar ( foamboard and tissue); and a pulpit, foaboard, cardboard and bbq skewers). The large cross was made of thin plastic.

|Lurking with intent (though actually in bushes)|
Finally here's the 'flora' from the courtyard, made not only for 'colour' and variety but also as a test piece for my jungle terrain (which even now is under production).
|Base coloured to match courtyard.|
That's it then for another week (it's back to the ships for me next week), I hope you've found something of interest and as always your comments are both welcomed and appreciated.
