Hey all, this isn't a mod exactly but I stumbled across this thatched roof today at Michaels for $2.09 (it's meant for a beach palapa umbrella), and it fits beautifully on top of the small tower! It's not quite right with the windows but hey, for $2.09 I figured I'd pass it along since they had a bunch of it at least at my store -- it was in the 70% off miniatures section.

A thank you now I"ve had months to use these, Astolat. They have come out of the drawer an average of 1game in 2!!! So many uses. One campaign is in a jungle just now, so they see these roofs almost every game...DF campaign is entering a large plain, and the native buildings often have this roof. DFS is entering a huge volcanic caldera where the natives zip about on gas-supported boats...so probably not so much for the grass hut roofs in that campaign!

I missed out on the rooftops, but I got some ridiculously cheap flock that will be passable for flowering bushes or trees, a couple treasure chests in the right scale, and a couple other odds and ends. The Halloween stuff used to have more trees and bare trees of interest, but in recent years I have been disappointed. I hope they have Xmas village stuff again this year. The ones in my area didn't carry any really last year.

I really hope Dwarven Forge sees these posts and starts making some cool roofs for City Builder.

All the michael's in my area were out as well and I was unable to obtain any. Maybe they will bring them back in the spring.

Peace.

Astolat, can't thank you enough. I love those roofs, and though I got no joy here - all our MANY local Michaels' were out - a trade of a few excess torch stands and a very helpful Trog got me my roofs, which are in the USPS right now.

Thanks again!

After seeing this post I was out shopping today and was able to check on two Michaels in the area. First one had no thatched roofs, but a number of other useful stuff in those collections (some cows and pigs the right size for example) and some greenery. The second store had the Thatched roofs (aka Tiki thingy's) and I picked up some. They have a pretty amazingly good fit on the small towers. Thanks for this thread.

Yeah, I never found them either... went to all of the Michael's stores in town.
The round thatch umbrellas were a spring item. They were already a close out when they were mentioned here and already at 70% off. The stores typically had four. I had to go allover town to get enough when they were in stock.
Same for me. Visited two stores and managed to snag the last 4 total. Nice find. Hopefully we'll get more stuff like that in the future.

I just picked up two of them at a local Michael's.

The Tiny Treasures "Shoreline" products have been cycled out for Halloween and Christmas items. But there is hope...

If you don't find any items from this line in the store (probably on one of the temporary "island" racks between actual shelf units) ask an employee about them by name. The store where I found mine had a shopping cart full of the stuff in the back.

Good luck, everybody!
