GameCraft Miniatures announce new terrain buildings:

From their announcement:

Today we are announcing a new line of Afghan style hovels.the new products are launching in 15mm first, all other scales (20mm, 28mm and 1/285th Scale) will follow very soon. Afghan hovels are similar to other middle east structures but are generally smaller, very plain in appearance, have smaller windows and the roofs are not recessed as much. Also some hovels will have exposed roof support timbers sticking out in a similar manner to old Southwest US structures. Models are precision laser cut and engraved from 1/8″ (3mm) MDF

    I have some of their foamcore buildings and they are nice. When my last order arrived there was a sample of the MDF product and I have to say it looked and felt great. I will be ordering Middle East and Afghan style 15mm in the new MDF range.There is a little work on your part but you can fill a table on the cheap. For the price they are hard to beat.

    I wonder if they will some day produce a Bannana tree, so that your minis can chill in the cool shade?

  • I’m still hoping for some 15mm scifi buildings along these lines, but these might be a good basis for conversion.

    @fee_weasel – what do you actually get? CNC Scenery Australia’s stuff comes in a large sheet, which you cut out the parts, sand them, and glue together. Are these GameCraft goodies along those lines?

      @Basement Gaming Bunker – We supply our parts fully cut out and ready for assembly. If you look on our site most of our buildings have several photos and one normally will show the kit as you receive it. We do not require you to cut anything out, sometimes the tiniest amount of sanding might be required on a part’s edge but even that’s rare…. we really try to give you ready to assemble parts so you can get them together and get back to gaming.

      • Thanks for the quick reply! I’ll have to grab a building or two in the near future and see what I can make with them.
