‘Every local despot needs a stately mansion to flaunt his wealth and influence,’ says Printable Scenery’s website in the description of their model Governor’s Mansion.
I’ve been really enjoying painting this 3D-printed model over the last couple of nights.
I love the quaint look for this building, with its saggy roof, diagonally-placed overhanging tower and intricate half-timbering. It wouldn’t look out of place in the city of Ankh-Morpork (as per the screenshot below from the old Discworld computer game).
The model was a cinch to paint, with lots of luscious detail that was easily picked out by dry-brushing. I chose a colour scheme that hinted at Bavaria, with its light blue and white shutters and doors.
If you haven’t got access to a 3D printer, Printable Scenery have a list of licenced third party printers all over the world.
