Build it and they will come...

Okay folks,

Well we are now under way with 2012 and for this update I wanted to show off some new buildings that I recently picked up for Gathering in the Desert and other projects.

The name of this awesome company is Game Craft Miniatures and they do terrain from as small as 6mm all the way up to 28mm. Mike over at Da Green Skins pointed me to these guys. Well after looking through their online store, I decided to pick up two kits for GitD for my Harad table. They offer middle eastern buildings that have that Harad look to them and they can also stand in for Pulp games or anything else. I also picked up the Gallows for some Legends of the Old West/High Seas gaming. All of these kits that I purchased were made out of MDF and cut with a laser.

It took about a week for my order to get to me and this is what I got below (all three kits).

First up is kit #28mmdf012 Middle East One Story Building.

Here it is all laid out, pretty simple.

Here is the building test fit together, total time to assemble, less than a minute! Nice thing I like about this one is the window and door openings, they have that Middle east feel to them, which once again is perfect for Harad.

Here is a 28mm figure to give you scale.

Here is the second kit#28mmdf015.

This one went together in the same time frame, less than a minute!

One other thing that I like is the brick effect that is laser cut into some of the spots on the building, here is a close up shot.

The last kit #28mwest014 took a bit more time to assemble as seen by the parts below.

One thing I did to change my kit up, was to install wood slates on the sides of the stairs. I did this for two reasons, one it would make the stairs a bit for sturdy and two, I broke some of the railing while assembling it. I always like to do some sort of modifications so it works for me.

Here are a few figures for scale, now all I need to do is make up a nice noose (that has the proper number of wraps) for it.

So there you go, a couple of new buildings and a nice Gallows. I really love these kits, they are sturdy, look good and are pretty cheap. All three kits cost $32.35 plus shipping. I will be doing some work on the Middle Eastern buildings tomorrow and will post up what I got done. so stay tuned...

YES! I just made a HUGE order after xmas and I think they are a bit backlogged because my order hasn't even shipped yet. I saw a post on their forums about the owner taking a well deserved vacation so I'll just have to wait I guess, no big deal. At any rate I purchased the entire 28 MM old west range basically about 350.00 worth of buildings ... which nets me something like 15 highly detailed structures. I'm sure I'll be very pleased and if so I'll likely end up buying the awesome looking middle east range as well!! They have some amazing 15 MM stuff to choose from as well. So happy this type of terrain is out there it really makes ultra high quality terrain an option for someone with limited time and non-unlimited funds. Great post and thank you!!

These look like great kits. The gallows is surprisingly good. I'll have to check this out.

Ya, they look great! I just picked up the corner saloon from the Wild West line. Surprisingly cheap for what your getting, too!

Very cool. These would be great as harad buildings. ;)
The gallows makes me want to do an old west table (plus I bet it would work for pirates)
