Details of additional products that we are working on that will be coming soon.
After much lobbying from the guys and gals on Two Hour Wargames, we have finally concluded our experiments on pre-painted buildings.
If we get sufficient positive feedback we will over the next couple of months make the whole of our range available as either an unpainted
or a pre painted kit.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to tell me what you think about prepainted option, good or bad. We will always have an unpainted
option, and will only make a pre-painted option if that is what gamers want. To enable them to be produced at an acceptable cost they are
cut from pre-painted sheets and I think the process introduces a shabby, weathered look that is quiet pleasing.
The other release for this week is a 2 Story Arts and Crafts style house in 15mm scale.
This should be available from our store by the weekend!
It is built in 3 sections, so figures can be placed on both levels. We've painted our prototype in New England Red as we're getting a bit tired
of painting houses off-white!
Winter is coming...

31st December - Finished Russian Farmhouse
This weeks new release is a bit of a change from the castle components we have been designing recently. Over the last two or three months Warlord Games’ Bolt Action WW2 platoon level game has been a regular favourite. My good friend and gaming buddy, Nick commented on the lack of rural buildings available in 28mm for the Eastern Front, and kindly supplied some photos of the type of thing that he was thinking of.
The first release in this line is a Russian Farmhouse which features a covered veranda. I was drawn to the window detail on the original building which is from The Ural; particularly the carved detail above the panes and the shutters and the chimney roof, which I think have come out quite well in the finished model. The finished building measures 210mm x 160mm. The roof is removable and reveals a detailed interior with a large living area and two bedrooms. The shutters on the windows can be modelled either open or closed, as can the doors, but I prefer to leave the doors unglued. The roof is thatched, which is modelled from fur fabric, which is supplied, cut to size in the kit. The fabric is glued to the roof former, brushed over with watered down PVA glue which is then combed to form a thatch effect. The model kit is precision laser cut from 2mm and 3mm MDF and is supplied unpainted. I choose to paint the components prior to assembly using Army Painter sprays, apart from the roof which I painted with household emulsion, wood stain and then drybrushed with Games Workshop Bleached Bone acrylic. The pieces that represent unpainted wood such as floor boards, interior doors and roof supports were left unpainted.
Although the building was made for WW2 wargaming, I doubt if the design of Russian farms and cottages has changed much since the medieval period so the building could as easily be used for Medieval, Seven Yea
