Witch's Hut (Suggestions) 11 Months ago  
Currently shopping for a Witch's Hut (or House) in the 28mm range (doesn't have to be exact) with limited success. Thought I would see if anyone has suggestions (Pre-painted or Not Painted).

I'm looking for something (mostly) assembled; not ready to invest (the time mostly) in Hirst Arts. Middle Ages (or early Renaissance) is the approximate time period I was thinking. There seems to be quite a lot out there, but haven't quite found "it" yet.

Re:Witch's Hut (Suggestions) 11 Months ago  
it might help to describe the "it" look you are going for.

1) are you wanting the hut to be square or round? (or another shape)

2) on the ground or on wooden platform and stilts? (the second is for a swamp style)

3) made of wood, mud, and branches or plaster and wooden beams?

4) it being a hut I think one room or did you mean two?

5) pre-painted or not?

6) would you be interested in commissioning the hut be built?

7) on a terrain scape or just the hut by itself?

this might help us along the way :)

www.kobblestone.ca and www.tabletop-world.com both have some nice cottages.

And www.hovelsltd.co.uk is still in business.

And of course, www.miniaturebuildingauthority.com
(Especially www.miniaturebuildingauthority.com/proddetail.asp?prod=10607 )

Finally, www.customkingdoms.com has some neat stuff, smaller footprints than most it looks like.

You're right that there isn't much to go on. Currently I'm not really locked into many specifics. I'll throw out my first instincts on specifics, though I wouldn't exclude a nice model/miniature that did not fit these factors.

Witch's Hut/Cottage (25-30mm)
Stone or Wood
Rectangular or Square
1-2 Rooms (interior access not required)
Pre-Painted or Not Painted (No Preference)

Primarily interested in the item as set/practice piece. I'll most likely paint it (even if it is pre-painted), make small additions/modifications, and build some terrain around it.

Thanks for the links and the help. I'll check them out.

There is also Table-top world, that has extremely well sculpted buildings. You unfortunately have to glue walls together and paint them. I feel the cottage pretty looks like what I imagine a Witch`s hut to look like:



For a much fancier building for a witch (not qualifying for the "hut" part) from Monolith-icon:



Sorn commissioned one of those for his out-of-this-world huge capital city setup.

This one is reasonably priced and prepainted:

I have always liked it - seems just right to me

Are you sure kitenerd it comes pre-painted? It seems to be outside of the "pre-painted" category. It looks cool indeed, but I don`t think it comes pre-painted.

Definitely pre painted - there used to be one at my FLGS and i should have bought it - i will if they get another in, or i'll just order one - i don't do a lot of world building stuff, but it would make a cool diorama with a couple of minis on the shelf in the family room!

a quick look around reveals they have a cottage as well (also available in large):

I actually have the Pegasus Wizard Tower. It is pre-painted (unless something has changed) and includes the steps going up to the tower as one piece. Since it is the only model/miniature building I own I can't say how it compares to others, but it seems like a great piece to me (and amazo g price).

I liked this one as a Witch's hut.
Give it a dark blue dry brush to give it a magic feel. Add some green moss flock in the crevices. Darken the thatch on the roof a bit
