The scene above is of a supply train trundling past a blockhouse bringing much needed supplies to a nearby frontier settlement.
Since I'm American I wanted to enter something into the "home" bonus round for the Analogue Hobbies painting challenge here that gives an image of my home and thought a North American log style Blockhouse fits that bill rather nicely as it conjures up that colonial feel of the frontiers of North America.
It could serve as a small fort, barracks, store house, place of refuge or a guard post on the frontier.
The model itself is from Grand Manner terrain which I happen to huge fan of and is quite large model and is intended for 28mm. You can fit an artillery piece plus several figures in the model itself which is nice. It's a resin piece so some clean up is required, but wasn't too much. I painted the model in mostly craft paints with some Foundry colors for the moss and a bit of Vallejo on the gravel. I always used a healthy amount of Mig pigments to give some weathering effects.
Well it was a tough week as I'd been dealing with a nasty case of man flu, but I'm happy I crossed the finish line in time to get this in for the bonus round as it was a bit dicey. I'm still 100% over the flu but doing much better now thankfully.
