A colonial plantation building WIP

 An idea of mine to make rooftiles from XPS foam with a spaghetti roller (don't ask) evolved into this plantation building for the Vietnam Project. 

After some trial-and-error I settled on a spaghetti roller and a small rolling pin I sanded off to a sharp edge. The basis for the roof were XPS foam sheets made with the Proxxon about 3-4 mm thick.

First go with the spaghetti roller (also good for making planking btw) 

Second roll with the rolling pin. 

The result

And the result made into a roof

Well, and when you have a roof, you will need a house.....
The first floor.

Second floor

And the house so far. It could use some more more detailing. So added windows, chimneys and roofwindows. 

And a bit of paint. Now for more details and finesse...

Making a Jorogumo

 Since I decided to use samurai to play The Silver Bayonet I started to collect figures for it. FOr some reason I decided to make my own Jorogumo (a female spider demon) from Reaper Bones' Spider Demon miniatures. This was the result. Below the process. 

The final result
