CCCX The Crooked House

Postby peggyjdb » Sat Nov 17, 2012 7:36 pm

Hi folks

Here's my second build


Just outside the wealthy town of Tigelfáh runs the track leading to the river and further on the mountains. Along the track, just before the river lives Egbert and his wife Hilda along with their young sons Henry and William.

Egbert inherited the hut from his father who had lived before the conquest. Unfortunately his father was a better warrior than a builder and he was a particular good warrior. Egbert now has to suffer his wife’s nagging for a new hut. But times are hard under the name rulers of the land and Egbert has to give half of the crops and food he produces to The Earl of Léonas whose expanding castle shadows Egberts small crooked, damp mud hut.

"There was a crooked man
Who walked a crooked mile.
He found a crooked sixpence
Against a crooked stile.
He bought a crooked cat
Which caught a crooked mouse,
And they all lived together
In a crooked little house."

Great job on the landscape colors, you seem to always get those just right. I also like that roof technique, it always looks so good, hopefully it will gain some popularity by the time the CCCX is over.
You would rather be building right now.
