Perry miniatures

I ordered two boxes of Perry Miniatures earlier this week from "Trains and Transport models" in Preston...excellent service as always, the figures arrived the next day. So I am now the proud owner of "Mercenaries" and "Wars of the Roses Infantry" figures, partly because of some sage advice on here, this will be an ongoing project which will grow over time.

My medieval 28mm alter ego is going to be based in France...at least one tiny part of me is going to have a better lifestyle! Whilst I am at it I might as well order him some Hasslefree 28mm wives! Anyway here are the pics of a modest house I made for my commander, vineyard and stables to follow. It is a basic build but cost pennies and may produce a few scenarios.







Thanks for looking, I am setting up a painting station downstairs as my son is busy playing "Black Ops 2", I am only needed to supply meals, snacks and drinks! I will feel redundant when he hits his teenage years and has even less interest in spending time with me....the joys of parenthood.
