From PeteF: North American Farmhouse (12 Points)
One of the projects I'm working on is Cowpens/Wetzel's Mill so the troops need some North American scenery to fight around. This is Sarissa's North American Farmhouse with Stone Chimney. It measures about 4"x4"x3". My maths is a little shakey but if you balanced it on one corner it could fill a 6" cube (20 points!). Alternatively it's worth 7 points based on volume and rounding up.
I had trouble getting the effect I wanted with the roof - and might need to ink or wash all the edges of the shingles to make them stand out a bit more. The north side got some light moss.
There could be a monster in here - maybe a Blair Witch. Or a redcoat.
'The Blair Witch Redcoat House'. I like it.
Great job on your debut entry, Pete! The raw look of the shingles and clapboard siding really gives the house that American Frontier look. I also like the stone effect of the chimney. 4x4x3? Really? It looks larger than that. Let's be generous and go with 12 points then.
Welcome to the Challenge, Pete!
