Crom's Anvil Barrack block a mini review

Post by CarlL »

Ok you may have missed the initial offer for a Crom Funder at Crom's Anvil to help him (Michael of Angel Barracks 6mm fame?!) get his latest fantasy 15mm project kick started. see https://www.thewargameswebsite.com/crom ... pre-order/
Dont worry this fantasy building has lots of historical uses, in 15mm and 20mm.

Well I put my money in and took a punt and I now have a building and I am pleassed with this product, a white resin cast, single piece, building with hollow interior to reduce weight. (See photos below in its nude state.)

The diemnsions of this model (intended for 15mm) are approximately: foot print 150mm by 70mm (apologies to those using inches); with tallest storey 75mm high and approx 40mm deep / width of upper roof; and lower roof approx 30mm deep, and 35mm off the ground.
You can shop for this barrack block at http://cromsanvil.co.uk/shop.html

To wet your appetite and to show its usefulness, here are some photos of it painted up. I simply washed it and then primed it and kept on adding layers of dry brushed paint - all acrylics - trying out different colours, to get the effect I wanted (a bit of trial and error over Sunday morning!) and I have photo'd it alongside my 20mm figures - both some smaller 20mm from Irregular (Neopolitans painted as Spanish Mainland army of c1900) and some larger 20mm from Shellhole Scenics Mexican Revolution range (painted up as Spanish for the Rif Wars, c1920), all based on 2mm mdf that are 50mm x30mm, to give you an idea of how well this building copes with larger figures.

Its worth a punt, my punt as part of the initial offer with P&P cost me £20. Others may think this a lot of cash and make their own building. Fair enough, but I will let you decide. Check with Crom's Anvil for current price post the initial deal.

Looks a little small for 20mm, Carl. The poor lads bunking on the upper level would have to sleep standing up, you'd never fit a bed in there!

I did do, fortunately she only painted me from neck upwards!
She is a canny painter! Just don't let her paint your model houses as she likes to use pink too much for my liking!
