Flames of War (Tutorial) : How to build simple houses / barns for Wargaming

Heia all again. After quite some time and a serious viral eye infection I am back with a couple of new stuff which I did this week after 6 weeks of abscence...

Lets start with a Tutorial for houses and barns in 15 mm style.

My first impression and hinderance was scaling the whole house. So I took two medium bases by FoW and added 2,5 mm on each side. That makes a house worth 8 by 6,5 cm (wide and length). For getting it high enougth I took some sample miniatures and scaled approx 2,5 to 3 cm for the first floor. The roof is again another topic. At this tutorial it is approx 2 cm heigh.

After doing the initial drawings on a piece of paper I transfered it to an old and unused papercard and cut it out with a knife. After that I basecoated it with a special paper basecoat so that it does not crumple somehow and then basecoated it with the real paint. A bit of drybrushing and glueing made a perfect barn for anythere during WW2...
