Medieval Buildings - Update
The most recent update from Grand Manner features this display layout of the newly released medieval buildings and houses which were designed by Dave and me. This is the first time I have seen the initial range fully painted and displayed.
The black and white townhouses, windmill and dovecote were designed and built by me, the church and country or farm houses (in the background) were designed by Dave of GM.
The townhouses are designed to be inter-changeable, where the ground floor, first floor and roofs (tiled and thatched) can be swapped and reversed to give an infinite choice of layouts and structures. The initial plan was for the houses to be used in rows as featured in Coventry, however this photo and others that I have seen of these houses in game use are usually displayed as single houses.
I am also impressed with the variety of colours used as opposed to 'plain' black and white schemes. I can confirm that the range is to be expanded and include larger and 'feature' buildings/structures. We may even have a couple for display and sale at Colours 2010, Newbury later this month.
More updates to follow.
