Well it took me about 5 weeks, but I finally got the Hougoumont complex completed. When I got tired of painting figures, I found it a nice relief to paint the Hovels 15 mm buildings. It was a pretty simple paint job, but I believe pretty effective. Probably never spent more than 10-12 hours actually working on it. I sprayed the buildings white and then used thinned acrylic paints as a medium wash. Only used 6 colours, all Citadel: Tanned Flesh, Dwarf Flesh, Fenris Grey, Charadon Granite, Knarloc Green and Gryphonne Sepia. The AP Darktone was applied, followed by a dry mat. I did touch up some of the white with a white dry brush.
The total complex, including the formal gardens is about 63x74 cm. The actual complex with the full size formal garden was around 120x225 metres. I cut the length of the formal garden by half, historically it was more then twice the size of the walled compound. I believe this gives me a ground scale of approximately of 5 cm to 1 metre.
Looking from the southeast, you can see the barricaded south gate, as well as the "killing ground" south of the formal garden wall.Looking from the northeast at the barricaded north gate. The northern part of the formal garden had an hedge rather than a wall.
Looking from the southwest. The complex itself was surrounded by a small forest that was actually about 3-4 times of the depth of the complex itself. There was also extensive orchards to the west of the formal gardens. These are underrepresented or not represented here. The tree stands are from Architects of War.
