Welcome! This is my own build of Roast Mutton! By Roanoke Handybuck! :D
About this creation
Hello! This is my second of 19 posts I will be doing, where I will be building my way through the Hobbit story, one chapter per post, I will do this over the course of the year...
This is also my second CCCXV entry! It will be in the small misc. category!
So, about the build. This build is actually a redo of this chapter, as I wasn't content with my previous attempt being up to the quality of the rest of the builds. So, this build's size is 31 x 27, and I would estimate around 1000 pieces. It was a lot of fun to build, and I finished it 2 weeks ago, but I am just now posting it. I hope you enjoy! :D
Pretty happy with this build, it took a week to build, and I gotta get a move on things if I am gonna get 6-7 entries in, but, I will be done with my third build today, so that should help. And I will try to have my vig done in a couple days as well... :)
Excellent work here, Roanoke! The terrain layering is what really stood out to me, you've captured the hilly feel perfectly while incorporating plenty of great variation. The boulders are just right too, light gray was a good choice for those. Again, another excellent installment in your Hobbit series, keep up the good work! God bless, ~Promar~
Thanks you two! Yeah, the size is a little small, but the path, I just ran out of dk. brown stuff... It looked a little strange and textureless when there weren't any studs mixed in... Thankfully, I am getting more dk. brown in my Christmas BL order. :) As for the rocks, I tried some dark bley rocks, but it just didn't fit the color scheme as well as the lt. bley IMO, and the people who helped with my WIPs agreed with light bley. Also, to anyone still looking at this, see if you can find an animal stuck in this build, it is not used as an animal tho...
Really nice build here, very solid. The texturing on everything is very nice. The building is really cool, and dark brown for the path looks great. Though one thing I noticed is that it seems smaller than it should be, The path is kinda skinny, and the house is clearly not big enough to live in ;) But that's understandable considering you wanted to keep it within a 32x32 baseplate. Also, the rocks look pretty good as they are, but I think it would have looked really good if they had been dark bley. It really would have looked ace. (though that's just my opinion). Nonetheless, this build has been one of my favorites from you, keep it up!
