Building of the Week Whyte Cottage V2 Thatched

Mike continues with his thatched options, this time transforming his Whyte Cottage. Being single story it will work for a number of periods right up to the modern day.

Leven Miniatures continue to broaden their range (this is yet to be released) at an unbelievable rate. They have certainly sent a wake up call to the other 6mm providers but lets be honest no one can match them for their quality to value for money offer and the ever growing range just seals the deal for me.

For all that, this is another simple model, seemingly low on detail yet on a closer look you have enough work put into the building that in fact it's quite charming. Above all other providers Leven seem able to supply a great mix of special and normal buildings allowing the wargamer to build far more realistic mixes of buildings. A quick look at their ranges shows the depth of choice that means you don't have to keep repeating a few buildings just to make a small town on the table.

The four buildings together that I have recently painted for Mike and delivered at the Joy of Six. Looking at his stand I was struck by just how damned good it was, Next was seeing so many different buildings all on the same stand, yes I knew how many he had but seeing MOST of them was still jaw dropping.

You can't see them as clear as in the flesh but consider that each peg on the boards is a different building and you get the idea. Later in the day he had more than a few gaps!
