A couple of years ago I printed out pictures of some Warhammer buildings from GW’s web pages. They all struck me as well executed and evocative, so I thought I’d try and do my own version of the one building which I thought I could build without making a mess of things. I have since been unable to find those web pages in their entirety, however I have learned that the buildings were all made by GW/Citadel veteran and design guru Dave Andrews. Good man!
The project ran on and off for about a year (i.e. it saw lots of shelf time) but recently I finished the structure from foam card, balsa wood, paper and plastic sheets, and what then remained was the paint job, weathering and basing. Which shouldn’t take too long, as the assembly was the time-consuming bit…

Then after some air- and drybrushing I am nearing completion; just a few details remaining, such as window details and some reinforcement of the wooden tower and a banner pole perhaps:
When the guard house is all finished I could imagine having a go at the single coolest Warhammer building of all time (also an D. Andrews creation); the Boat House:
Then again, maybe not.
