Tabletop-World: Blacksmith Forge

This is the newest Blacksmith Forge from Tabletop-World. By newest I mean that this is actually their 3rd version of their blacksmith building. I am fortunate enough to own the 2nd edition aswell which is a whole lot different and much larger than this.

Tabletop-World Blacksmith

It was easily assembled (their new models are great!) and I’m glad I made my old Blacksmith (the 2nd edition) look more like a house or bakery as I wanted it to be up to each session which kind of building it resembled. Else there would be quite a competition in the village!

Tabletop-World: Cottage

This is the cottage from Tabletop World. Another of those newer buildings which require almost no assembly (which is a big plus for me as the old ones were a b#*@% to assemble)

This time I tried out a more cozy orange colour for the windows instead of the traditionally blue, which also looks really cool but a bit trivial. I was afraid that it would look like the house was on fire, but I think it turned out perfect! Added to the picture is the dead tree from their catalog and one of my many warepiles :)

I was actually inspired by a very old version of the Memory game from Ravensburger I had when I was a kid. One of the tokens were of a timbered house with orange windows and a black roof. Really spooky and I absolutely loved it! I am currently painting their “Townhouse III” in those colours and it will most likely stand out, but i’ve really enjoyed painting it so far!

Tabletop-World: Coaching Inn

This one is the Coaching Inn from Tabletop-World and at the time of purchase (2013), the largest house they ever made. In 2014 however, they made an even bigger Mansion and finally in 2015 they added the Town Gate which is enormous! Wonder how 2016 will look!

I actually painted this one twice because I thought it would look cool with red patterned stones instead of standard grey. Boy, was I wrong! The whole thing looked like a big mess! So I decided to start over and try again with the standard grey theme. Looked a lot better :) Also added some of my many warepiles for extra flavour!

Still it is a fragile building (especially the balcony railing, which miraculously survived the trip from Croatia) and I shiver every time one of my friends tries to use the balcony in Mordheim!

The Tabletop-World Gate

Early Christmas present!

I was supposed to open it Christmas eve,  but with the kids running around high on sugar canes, I thought the most responsible thing would be to open it early (and I was way too excited to wait). I was worried about how it would handle the transport home as well. But when I opened it, it actually turned out less fragile than anticipated. Oh well.. :-)

Good thing I still get to open 2 more buildings from Tabletop-World Christmas eve !

The building is MASSIVE! and as you can see, I’m still behind on the tower and townhouse… In 3 days I’ll have 5 unpainted tabletop world buildings taking up space in my already tiny apartment! So much to paint and so little time!
