Interesting choice of colours, but blends in rather well. Good work, and I just love your scenic shots  :-*

They all look like beautiful buildings. I think my favourite is the barn though: the uneven bottom of the wooden siding and the wobbly roof suggest a characterful, old utilitarian structure.

Amazing collection, Richard!  o_o

And good on you for dropping a few quid which I am sure those companies really appreciate at this time.

The other day I ordered 90 pounds of stuff from Pendraken.

This craziness isn't going to last forever, but if we don't spend some bob, some of our favorite places will be history. Make someone happy this Christmas and spend some money!

'Tis indeed!  :-*

I keep wanting to look at the sides of your terrain tiles though  lol (I know, I should just do it)

I've already done so. Quite a bit of cash has been splashed out of late.

I do hope things aren't going to be as bad as many are anticipating, the vaccine is literally around the corner. Apologies for going a little OT but it is an emotive issue with, I'm assuming, all of us. :)

A wonderful colorful town.  It will make for some very beautiful battles.

Well done again Richard, those buildings remind me of the Shambles in York, beautiful and atmospheric. 😍😍😍

Well done Richard, your collection of buildings is really coming together. I don’t think I’ve seen a bigger town on these pages  8)

Just caught up with this.  I know you said you’d ordered a few of the TBM houses.  I think they mix in very well with your other buildings tbh.  I agree the Grand Manner one is more detailed, certainly inside but as you rightly point out, a huge price difference. 

External appearance though, I think they all complement each other well and as already mentioned, I too think the barn is the best of the bunch.

Lovely pictures btw, especially with the ECW chaps.   I do a bit of reenactment, and always dreamed I would win a mint, and have commission built some fibreglass building reliefs that could be transported about to be used at musters to recreate just such a look.  Instead, I have to console myself with makeshift timbre and canvas panels or rolls of hessian to disguise toilet blocks in the middle of our battlefields! Lol

Very nice buildings. Really look the part.

My bank manager is very pleased to hear that Grand Manner don't make any 15mm buildings.
