Indian Longhouse

Presenting my Indian longhouse which was waiting in the wings for attention during the recent painting challenge (where terrain doesn't score for points) so its nice to get it completed.  Hoping to get it on the table in the coming weeks for a FIW Sharp Practice game.

Like my log cabin, I've gone for a brighter look vice weathered greys and like the finished look.  Its mounted on an mdf base so I could do a few thematic pits around it.  I've been looking forward to doing this since I saw the recreation ones at Plymouth Plantations (see here) though I went with a brighter, less weathered look.

Size wise, it works well with the Indian villagers I completed earlier this year (28mm Redoubt figs), which is good seeing that this is a 15mm building :-)  I went with the smaller scale for a better ground scale and think it works well overall (noting the doors would have been smaller to retain heat in winter).  It is a resin model by Blue Moon.

And that completes the last of the FIY goodies I bought at Fall-In 2015 in the US :-)


  1. What a great piece of work Paul, really nicely done Sir.

  2. That is very nice indeed Paul!

  3. Nice work Paul :)

    It could have been entered in the "Home" bonus round - I'm pretty sure that Curt gave points for the terrain in that, plus you'd have got the 50 points just for entering it

    1. Thats Ok, I submitted my settler's cabin with 6 armed civilians for that Bonus round instead :-)

  4. Looks great Paul! If that's a 15mm version then I'd say the 28mm one would dominate the table perhaps too much. 15mm looks spot on.

  5. A wonderful Longhouse, great job!

  6. Wow really nice Paul, you could almost sneak it into a game of Congo or have you not fallen under this spell?
