By MCGHIEVER - Dec. 31, 1969There's rarely a reason to send figures inside a building on a wargaming table, so this structure was designed to be open to present an attractive source of cover. It also doesn’t block line of sight across the battlefield. The roof lifts off and the sarcophagus inside is removable.
This project originated with a desire to combine the gothic pillars and arches into a colonnade. I played around with gothic pieces from molds #42 and #43 and the arches from #45 trying to find an arrangement that could be symmetrical. I also wanted to leave an inch gap all the way around the sarcophagus to leave room for miniatures. The panels around the exterior confused me for a long time because of their atypical dimensions; it took me a while to figure out where to measure them from to ensure I was building the right length.
Once I had the design, the actual construction went quite smoothly. The WIP shots indicate the sections I built in. The only major hurdle was having to cast the Small Brick mold 28 times to get the small sloped bricks under the eaves.
The structure itself measures 5” x 6” x 4”. However the corkboard base brings it to 9” x 10” x 4.5”.
