The middle ages weren’t just knights in shining armor and princesses stuck in winding towers… there were plenty of odd jobs needing to be done.
This was a fun use of the half-stud offset technique for the back wall. It’s a great way to blend colors and give a wall a weathered feel. I also used some light aqua, trying to convey a feel of slimy decaying matter.
The build is actually almost completely finished. That’s because I initially intended to build a vignette with a vendors stall on it, so I gave it a border, and then started on the wall. But due to time constraints (I had about three hours before leaving on a two week trip!), I realized that a stall would just be too much. As it turned out, the weathered wall made the perfect backdrop for this kind of scene!
