A Town on the Rise


As I mentioned a few posts ago, I fell in love with the 4Ground Old West buildings at Adepticon I knew I had to have a set. So after I sold my remaining Arnica Buildings at last months Gamers Garage Sale I purchased the first four Old West buildings from Architects of War online store.

And before I get to far, I want to say that the folks at Architects of War store are awesome! They are fast at replying to e-mails and quick on shipping. In fact I ordered these buildings on a Saturday night and I had them at my house the following Wednesday. I highly recommend ordering from them and I will be placing more orders with them in the near future.

So back to the 4Ground buildings, I decided that I would order 3 of the basic buildings and the Sheriffs office as well as the Hitching posts set.

So, each building took about 2 hours to construct, the first kit took a bit longer since it was the first 28mm building of theirs I put together. I used regular white Elmers white glue to assemble them with knowing that the glue would dry clear. I decided to base the buildings and texture them since it makes the kits a bit more rugged for storage. You will notice that the buildings do not have any signs on them, I have not decided to hand paint them or use the ones on the Great Escape  Games website (these buildings are for the Dead Mans Hand game). We will see but I am leaning towards painting my own signage.

I do have to say that these are the best old west buildings out there. They are nicely pre-painted kits and they have pre-painted interiors as well. Two hours of construction and you get an awesome looking building that requires very little paint. So here are a few pictures of the finished kits.

Here is the Sheriffs Building that I really wanted while at Adepticon. I still need to base this building.

Well there you go, the first four building built and ready for some old west action.
