Its been a long time since I did a piece of terrain. I look at the range of lasercut buildings that now present themselves and why bother with anything else? Not expensive and very well done but I fancied doing something a bit different so I had a go at a multipurpose peasants hut. The usual mdf construction as I had some spare offcuts lying around.

The thatched roof effect was tricky and despite repeated coats of pva glue it refused to settle down. Finally painting it absorbed huge amounts of acrylic. But I'm reasonably happy with the final effect. I think it could pass muster from the middle ages onwards. Presumably the French officer finds it beneath his dignity to wander in.

The tree by the way is not something I made but it adds a bit of arboreal colour

The first of hopefully a range of units from the armies at Culloden at a rough scale of 1 to 20. This is supposed to be Munro's (or Dejeans) 37th foot although it could probably stand in for any yellow facing regiment of the time. Figures are from the Crann Tara Miniatures range.
