Any suppliers do 'Khartoum' style of buildings?
« on: April 02, 2018, 10:46:21 PM »
Been trying to find some larger town style of buildings for the Mahdist Wars, the sort you'd find in a place like Khartoum.

There are plenty of small house type buildings out there but I can't seem to find any like those in this link http://onemanhisbrushes.blogspot.co.uk/2016/05/sudan-naval-brigade-gun-team-and.html  The company that supplied these (Najewitz) no longer have them listed on their site and just seem to sell 3D print files these days.

So can anyone point to some good quality buildings? I'd prefer resin.
 
Thanks again.

lasermodellbau.de (najewitz modellbau) used to have a range, but seems to have shifted entirtely to 3D-printable files...

Their range of resin buildings would probably have been what you are after. Some pics here:

EDIT:
Did you write about those in your original post?? So much for browsing the forum without my reading glasses  lol

I know you said you prefer resin, but you can find some absolutely beautiful and appropriate MDF buildings here:

Ironheartartisans look interesting! Personally wouldn't paint it bright like that for my games.

Kobblestone are very nice, but sadly they are modern buildings.

Found these: https://www.sarissa-precision.com/North_Africa__Colonial/cat1603369_4161569.aspx

Real shame about lasermodellbau.de.

Most of the interesting stuff is made in the US, it seems... a bit expensive to buy over here, this side of the pond.

I just made Sarissa a suggestion about making some buildings like the Najewitz ones, lets see what they answer  ;)

Fingers crossed with regards to Sarissa. Let me know their reply please.

Gutting about Najewitz. I was also looking to buy some stuff off Architects of War, they had some cool stuff, really wanted their 'desert well'. I was only toying with the Sudan a couple of years back, and thought I'd get this stuff in the future when I made The Sudan Wars a proper project for me. Just assumed this stuff would still be around a couple of years on, shouldn't take things for granted! Oh well.

At least I'm spoilt for choice for adobe buildings, loads of them out there.

I just hope I nudged them a bit in the right direction, then  ;)

NP, I am pretty interested in being able to 'populate' a table in an Arab 'city' look for Pulp, Colonial, and Crusades settings myself, so if all goes well, we'll both be getting some nice stuff, somewhen  8)

I had been eyeing the Najewitz buildings many times, but always backed off because of the price (pretty steep, as far as I remember), so if some similar - but not-so-expensive - options become available, I shall probably start collecting...

I glad I picked them up when I did then!
