If I understand well, those thermoplastic miniatures are a nightmare to clean, so I don’t understand why they don’t make them in miniatures plastic? It’s like the box of Star Wars Legion I bought in the past and discovered that the plastic was not like hard miniature plastic and difficult to clean, so i abandoned!

It is a question of cost.
The mould for a sprue (or in the case of the Coftyran and Crusader figures two half sprues) is extremely expensive to have made, and you need to be sure you are selling plenty of them to make a return.

The moulds for the thermoplastic figures are much cheaper to make, but do not last as long.

I didn’t find that. I found them a lot easier to clean up than many metals. I just wouldn’t file them.

I did not get a chance to ask on the Sarissa stand at Salute if they were going to do any buildings for TQW?

The Grub Hut printed on the box is available as a PDF if you do not want to cut up the box. An MDF version would be nice.

At the moment I am thinking of using the Warbases Paris 1625 range for some buildings.

They are slightly cartoony with their height to floor plan ratio.

The plan involves adding some Slater's Flint/Random Pebble Walling and Milliput render.

FWIW I’ve started a thread for my own Quar project, here:

I think those buildings would work well.  I too have scoured the artwork and it seems Quar have everything from mid huts to iron fortresses. 
So anything would work.  The MDF shells could lend themselves to scratch built Quar add ons. 

They’re supposed to have 1930s / WWI tech and I don’t think houses had substantial differences in appearance from 100 years ago.  So I would just pick a style and go with it.  😀
