Gothic Building--Finished

 I've assembled, glued and painted my Pegasus Gothic Building.   It had no floors or roofs, but I still decided to assemble it as a 2 story buildings

Front View

The doors actually open and close, and the roof is just a piece of cardboard, painted and stood on top, so miniatures can be placed there.   I may need to add a hatchway for access.

First Floor

I thought I got mildly clever here.   I took 4 of the Greek columns I've had for years, and which turned out to be exactly the height I needed and glued them onto my cardboard base, so they will support the second floor.

Second Floor

Another piece of cardboard perched on top of the columns, serves as the second floor.  It has to be a little offset because of all the internal protuberances, and I've cut out a section to represent where the stairs would be.   I should search around for an actual stairs to put in there.


 Here are a Carrion Crawler and Griffin I've painted up.  Bought from Adventurer's Academy

Gothic Building, rethinking

 After playing around with the Gothic Building for a while, I think I'm going to glue it together and paint it.   It's just too jerky and unreliable to be constantly re-assembling.   I would just get frustrated all the time and would end up never using it.

 Here are some wizards I had bought from Adventurer's Academy, just finished painting them.

Gothic Building

 I had gotten this Gothic Building set for Christmas, but since we weren't playing live, I hadn't gotten around to dealing with it.

I had thought you'd use it to make a specific building, which you certainly can do, but you can also leave it unglued and each section can fit together and be pulled apart like Legos (but not as good).  Therefore, you can reconfigure it each time.    I think that's what I'll do, to customize it for specific scenarios, one advantage being that it will be easier to store. I reckon I won't paint it either.

 Here are a couple of shots
