Meeting House

I imagine Giles is looking at this building and thinking something looks very familiar.:-)Indeed he would be correct!I based this meeting house heavily on his Old Kennett Meeting House with a few changes of my own.
I really liked the Old Kennett Meeting House he has in his blog,but not the price he paid for it.No doubt it's worth it,but I don't want to pay a large sum of money for terrain.So,my only answer was.........build it myself!:-)
It took some time to do as I made it out of balsa wood,foam card and just plain cereal box card,modeling knife,ruler,and pencil for stenciling .Overall,I'm pleased with the result and I plan on doing some more buildings.
I like the idea of a meeting house on the table as this reminds you were they gather to discuss the revolution and adds to the atmosphere.
Outside the Mayor greets the porter in an enthusiastic cheer as he brings much needed ammo and supplies to the local militia.

This is the start of my civilian collection for scenery.I've been admiring these miniatures from the Perry's for sometime and now I've had a chance to paint a couple.The first is what I believe is a patriotic older gentlemen/mayor waving the marching troops on to victory or he could just be giving an enthusiastic greeting.
The second is a two wheeled tumbrel used to transport supplies and/or ammunition.
These models(like all Perry)have been a lot of fun to paint and I'm looking forward to doing some more.
