Great pictures, and ditto on the thanks for the legwork.

Does anyone own some of these roofs AND the roofs that Tom made and Yansolo is now selling? I would love to see some side-by-side comparison pictures...


Use this link to see some of my previous pictures. The PMC buildings are around the raised plateau. The buildings inside the MBA walls are DF buildings with Tom's roofs.

As you can see, the DF buildings with Tom's roofs are appreciably larger. Tom's roofs are particularly beautiful in that they are very nicely painted to match the DF walls.

Sorn, that is an awesome village -- thanks again for posting pictures of it.

Just remember that PMC buildings are a slightly smaller scale than DF as best I can tell, but his new single roof pieces are larger and fit exactly DF dimensions.

Speaking of which, I asked Martyn about 6x6 size roof pieces. He told me the 4x4 and 4x6 roof pieces are selling well on eBay, but he has held off making a mold for 6x6 because he wasn't sure there would be enough demand for it.

If you would like to see 6x6 roof pieces (and would buy them if available) post a quick reply or send me a PM -- I'll lobby Martyn to go ahead and produce them if there are more folks other than just me interested in that size.

You should tell him to paint his PMC roofs to match more closely DF tiles...I bet he would sell more of them that way.

21 sets and counting. Seems like I never have enough!

I would be interested in 6x6, especially if he offers different styles, some thatch, blue slate tiles, wood shingles, etc.
Having a mix makes for a better looking setup IMO.

I would prefer 6x6 over any other size. I emailed him yesterday
and I'm waiting to hear back. This is just what I have been looking
for... Thanks for finding this.

Purplesaber,

Do you know if Martyn is still in business? He owes me a second order and after some stalling now is not responding to e-mails at all (this order is over 6 mths old).

Cheers

Bossman,

Yes he is. I had an order get lost in shipping (my luck is bad with packages from Europe, an order from Yansolo took two months to arrive after shipping!). I contacted Martyn through ebay messaging and swapped my order for a set of DF roofs. They should arrive soon.

I will forward a link to this to Martyn.

Hi guys,

Let me know if you do make contact with him. After making the initial batch of roofs he seemed to have dropped off that project, although I see his regular buildings still get listed on eBay. I emailed him a month ago but didn't hear back. It's too bad because I thought his 4x4 roofs were quite good. I'll try emailing him through eBay too.

I also had problems with my order with Martyn.My order didnt show up and after 5 months he remade and reshipped it at his expence. Martyn used Worldwide Express(USPS) because they had tracking.I did finally get my goods.Contacting him through Ebay would be my advice.Its a shame,it must cost him a fortune to replace all the orders that go missing from the Royal Post Office.If you place an order and are in the States I suggest upgrading the shipping.

Looks like Martyn is still in business. Got a parcel from Royal Post this weekend. The stuff I ordered in April never made it here. He substituted some roofs for me. Still, took many weeks to arrive since he used the less expensive shipping. But, four new roofs are mine! Two 4x4 and two 4x6. :)
