A few posts back I showed off two 6mm resin building models from Baccus that I have recently painted. While I was at Hot Lead two weekends ago, sadly just for a few hours as I was quite tired from travel, my chum James Manto managed to point me to a vendor who was trying to get rid of some old stock, including a ziplock bag of 6mm lead buildings, which I got for a bit of a steal.
Lord knows who the manufacturer is or how old they are - any ideas?. The sepia colour in the photo is curious - some of it is due to photo-editing but it is there in the metal, which to me suggests age. The bag included a satisfying amount of buts and pieces … chimneys, dormers, and the like. Even though I want some of the TImeCast stuff (curse you, Kinch!) now I have the makings of a decent central European village - Altemetallburg, maybe?
I’m open to colour suggestions for painting the walls and roofs.
In other news, while I was at the gym this morning the page view count tipped over 100,000. There is a contest coming, with prizes for cleverness, details to follow in the next post.
Blessings to your brushes and die rolls.
