Building Timber Framed Houses in 28mm Scale - WIP

The dwelling house.
The barn.

When Perry Miniatures released their Medieval cottages some time ago the plan was to build them as "Skånelängor", a timber framed house typical of southern Sweden to be used in a Scanian War (1675-1679) project. Since then focus shifted to, among other things Napoleonics and the second world war.

A "Skånelänga" of present day Skåne/Scania.

With Micke at Dalauppror and Sören at Black Powder Games recently starting a Scanian War project it was enough inspiration for the Perry boxes to be taken from the shelves.

The Perry Medieval Cottage is a great kit. Using three Perry cottages to build two houses the proportions became more suitable for our projects. The aim is to have them quite generic to work both for the Leipzig campaign of 1813 aswell as the NWE theatre of 1944. And maybe even some Scanian War gaming.

One of the buildings is a dwelling house, with a chimney and a couple of windows added, the other is a barn, with a roof that has seen better days.

Hopefully they will get some paint soon.
