After sitting on my desk for a year, the final three Stollenian structures have been painted to completion. From left are: a formerly Lutheran church based on two still extent structures now in the Russian Kaliningrad region (the once German towns of Goldap and Eydtkuhnen right along the Lithuanian border), a single merchant’s townhouse detached from its ruined interior base, and two similar townhouses built as one piece.
If you look closely, you’ll see the dates of construction (so common on old houses in the “old” sections of many cities across the European continent). You’ll also notice that the right most townhouse is also home to Der Traurige Krabbe (The Sad Crab), a favorite haunt of students at Stollen’s Krankenstadt University. I wonder if Immanuel Kant ever spent time daydreaming at that particular tavern?
Finishing these stylized model buildings this evening has made me realize that I never did post a wargaming structures how-to here although one of you asked about this a year or so ago. Mia culpa! So, I’m working on that now and will post it here as soon as it’s finished. I’ve already got the preliminaries down on “paper”. All that remains now is to flesh it out somewhat. In the meantime, it’s back to that final batch of Spencer Smith/Holger Eriksson cavalry.
