Last week I finished a model that I started a couple of weeks ago. Somehow with terrain building I'm even slower than with painting. Anyway finally The pit house for my Dark Ages village is completed:
It's one of the wonderful resin kits Stronghold Terrain produces. Elmar and Mirco have an excellent range of buildings which were modelled on buildings within a German outdoor museum.
The kit includes a solid and wonderfully sculpted baseplate, the six or seven part building and two straps of teddy fur to tile the roof with. All the pieces were cast crisp and clear and needed literally no cleaning. They fitted very well and I used two-component adhesive to glue everything together. Except of the roof to simplify putting figures inside.
As usual I painted the house with Vallejo Model Colors. Afterwards I applied different sorts of static grass, flowers and clumb foliage to top the base off.
Judge the result yourselves but I'm pretty satisfied with it. It's a nice company for the Dark Ages cottage I built last year and most likely I'll add some more buildings to the village. Momentarily I've got other projects to bring forth but at least a wonderful furnace is lurking around my lead pile...
