WIP Critique Romeo Tavern/Quarter Master.

    I have started both project together which is unusual for me.

    This is everything in the box plus some extras from O'Llanaise.
    I sanded the bottom of the floor to ensure that it was flat. I am cleaning the pieces as I go and washing them with dishwash detergent.

    The base is 6' by 7' and 1.5 inches deep, not including the black base. This was custom made by 'The Hussar" in Oklahoma City OK.

    I have glued the tavern floor on the base with the white Gorilla glue for strength and to save my 2 part epoxy????????????? :D I had to buy the Gorilla glue????? I used it for beer foam on a beer stein for the scene.!!!!!!!! So $8.00 for the beer foam :singing:
    I added and glued the rear wall and made sure that the wall was perpendicular to the floor with a square? This was mistake No 1. When I added the support post I found out that the wall should lean in a little at the top so that the post would touch the floor.:eek: I had used the two part epoxy for this and as it was still a little soft I could squeeze the wall into position. IPMS will probably knock points off for the wall not being completely square to the base.:LOL::LOL::LOL:

    I used the clamps to hold the roof together and clamped a square to the post so it was perpendicular to the floor and a large rubber band to hold the post to the floor. I do not own a bigger clamp.

    The quarter master is primed .

    The photo is shiny as the oil paint is still wet as I have just finished this bit when I took the photo.
    The flash as lightened the colour as it is a little darker in real life.

    All comments are welcomed and accepted.
    Til next time,
    Cheers

    Update No.1
    Working on the quarter master.

    The jacket colour is based on the powell book. 275 colour No.

    8 white/2 Cadmium orange/1 permanent green light.
    The gun barrel was drilled out and the jacket has more work to go.

    tavern6edt.jpg

    These are the colours for the blue and red and the hat colour in warm grey and also the white shirt.
    The blue has some green in ittogive a green hue. Hence the blue/green shade.Everything needs to be lined and the arms are at the same stage. I used Burnt sienna for the lining of the jacket as I thought that would look better for the leather look. Lots of tidying up to do and I noticed some over paint on the bottom of the shirt by the gun.
    All comments are welcome and encouraged.
    Sooooo much to do and soooooo little time??????:LOL:
    Til next time,
    Cheers

    Great project, warm thanks for sharing with us. I can't wait to see what scenery you have in mind and how do you intend to give it life. How figurines do you want to use for this project?
    Lovely start on the figurine, have fun and inspiration!

    There will be a total of three figures on the base. It would be nice if I could find a barmaid????:LOL: The feet placement are already set in the floor by Romeo when they designed the scene.

    I will if you please write the request on the back of a $50.00 bill and send to my address:D:D

    I don't own a $50.00 bill. A "please and thank you" has worked in the past. Besides that, it would not get to your house before Saturday. You'll just have to let me owe it to you.
    And I would rather owe it to you for the rest of my life than beat you out of it.
