New Release: 28mm 1:56 "Pantile Granary" April 27, 2017 11:39
The 6th model in the collection, the "Pantile Granary" (horreo in Spanish) is now available in store. As other models in the range; the horreo can be used in Peninsular War, pirate or wild west Mexican type settings.
The kit is MDF with resin roof and resin supporting pillars (pegollo). The model comes with a base with engraved squares giving the exact location for the pegollo. The freestanding stairs with the "rodent gap" can be assembled in seconds.
This kit provides a number of tactical considerations, with the many open slots, whole units can fire out! Being raised up, troops on foot can have line of sight and even move underneath the building. The stairs will block line of sight and provide hard cover.
Being a gamer, I could see the religious symbols and urns (adornos) getting broken off in play so one was cut on the front to retain the "flavour" of the piece.
