FLAT PACK BUILDINGS

I've been meaning to have a go at this project for a while, needing 54mm buildings and terrain, but without the hassle of constructing them or the massive amount of storage space they would take up. I thought I would start off with a tavern which I can use for 17th and 18th century games.

Uncle Toby shows the way to the bar of the Cockwell Inn.

...and directs vittals to be sent to the troops.


A side on view.

The building was  cut from 3mm MDF with a jigsaw. For future buildings I will add more detail (such as a chimney, which I forgot on this inn....doh), but overall I was quite pleased with the result.

PANDEMONIUM IN TROMPENBERG

The Margrave of Trompenburg has ordered two statues of Pan to grace his newly planned Arcadian garden, from the great sculptors Meneers Scheemakers and Rysbrack. They have just been delivered to the palace and the Margrave has ordered Herr Rackett the court poet and philosopher to come up with a suitable inscription for the larger statue. Here we see Herr Rackett contemplating the blank plaque and wondering where such beings as satyrs and nymphs belong in the order of things.
