This beautiful barn is pre- painted model from the Perry miniatures stable, I doubt they sculpted it but it’s in their shop in the pre-painted section. It’s not cheap being £50 with £7 postage. I was put off by this for a long time but when the big 50 came along I thought to hell with it.
There is a new company that has just started to make 28mm Gettysburg building in MDF and they look like they will be even larger. The bonus with these is the roofs can come off and the doors move, however you can’t beat the realism of a well sculpted resin model.
I will no doubt start to collect this new Gettysburg MDF range as they do look very good.Also, they have designed all the classic little farm stead’s that dotted the battle ground, which will allow you to play games set in particular areas.
Years ago I was all about the figures and painting scenery was a chore, but now I’m older I have changed my ways. A nice set piece in the middle of a battle field can really make a game.
