1/300th Buildings (1)

 Having played a game with Tim about 10 days ago using Black Powder rules with his 6mm Jacobites I knew I had some 6mm Malburians by Baccus. Yes I realise these are buildings, please bear with me. The Malburians I knew I had put somewhere "Safe". So I started the search for them and found these resin 6mm (1/300th scale) buildings. So the brush came out and the paint went on because it is always nice to have some scenery for games. There are 2 more which are half painted so look out for them in coming posts.

The first building I have painted I have made into a pub or Tavern. The sign says "Hop and Vine" so it is very generic and could fit in anywhere. The other three are not commercial building but dwellings. All 4 buildings have a variety of building styles and materials. Stone build, timber frame wooden planking and a rendered plaster finish are all in evidence. There is a mixture of tile and thatch roofs and different forms of stonework including quoining. Most buildings have a mixture of styles and techniques which adds to the very village feel of the buildings. over all I am very impressed with these buildings sculpts as they each are absolutely packed with character. When the other two are finished they will make a very charismatic and charming village to battle through.

I did eventually find the place the Malburian figures were hiding. This particular "Safe place" was tucked behind the printer by my computer. I have no idea why they were hiding there but they did  show up so that is another thing to get painted in the coming weeks.

That's it for now. I should post again in 2 days. So until then thanks for reading and as ever feel free to make comments if you choose. All the best Clint.

  3. Great looking buildings, my own 6mm buildings don't have that amount of detail on them.

    1. The buildings are very nice sculpts packed with detail and when you start you just have to paint it all. Cheers Jo

    1. I agree they are packed full of detail and character. Which makes them more fun to paint.

  7. Nice looking buildings, though I don't recognise them.

    Ah, it's always frustrating when you *know* you have some models, but you just cannot find where you put them, isn't it?

  8. I have many hidden stashes of figures I find them all eventually usually when I am looking for some others.

    Sorry I can't spread any light on the origin of the buildings. Just a lucky find from one of the stashes.

    Thank you Colgar.
