Building of the Week, Another Leven Farm Tile

I'm not sure how many of these I have done now but I have quite a few and all are different. This one is no exception as two of the three buildings are firsts for me.

I was hoping for better weather so I could take the pics outside but poor light and on off rain meant that was never going to be a good idea so inside shots only I am afraid. I tried something a bit different for me and added a second stone colour to the buildings. Whilst I was doing it I really was not too sure and expected a repaint but once finished I was rather happy with the result.

The tile comprises of FAR15 Stone Farmhouse £2.50, FAR20a Farm Outbuilding £2.00 and FAR20d Farm Outbuilding (pigsty) £1.50 and bits from ACC02 Dry Stone Wall set £3.00 all of course from Leven Miniatures

It really belongs in a European setting and a little later than my planned use of it but with the added bits I think it can pass for a Napoleonic tile if you push it a bit.

I added a Baccus tumbril to the yard to add a little interest but also some of the Perfect Six Scenic range of scenic items. In this case one of the larger barrels from the set and a couple of the newer releases in a couple of sack clusters.

I am quite pleased with the result, the extra bits really break up the yard area and with the latest releases from Perfect Six I could have added a farmer, his dog and even a horse awaiting the tack to be brought out to be harnessed to the cart. Expect to see a few carts in the future with sacks or stacks of boxes in them. Now please kindly remember to shut that gate.

  3. Looks great Ian! I love little dioramas like this on my table. I find the trick is not to overburden the detail so they are still useful as wargaming terrain. You've got the balance nailed. I'm going to need some of these scenic items to spruce mine up!
