Medieval 3D Buildings Project

In continuation of a push to increase my 28mm terrain stock, a few months back I took the opportunity of utilizing the new 3D printers at work to produce a couple of medieval European buildings. I snaffled the files free from Thingiverse and the good staff who operate these modern marvels kindly printed them off for me. The townhouse and tavern/ hall were just what I was looking for to use as multi-period pieces. The printing wasn't perfect and I've had to use a bit of filler here and there when basing these up, but I'm happy with the way they've turned out. There was a muck up with the sizing of the townhouse roof piece, so I ended up making my own using polystyrene, Balsa wood and cardboard. You can tell when you have a closer look. I think these will see lots of action in my medieval, English Civil War and Seven Years War battles.
Thanks for taking a look.


  1. Thanks, Ray. Some might think 3D printing buildings is cheating a bit, but for those of us with limited experience in scratch building stuff it does provide an avenue for getting highly defined miniature structures quickly and mostly cheaper than buying commercial resin models.

  2. There is no such thing as cheating...the only reason I scratch build (badly) is I am to mean to buy building or ships...I would rather spend the money in figures!

  3. Nice blog here! Also your web site loads up very fast! What host are you using? Can I get your affiliate link to your host? I wish my web site loaded up as quickly as yours lol. spanish american war service records
