Eleven Tree Designs Tudor House 15mm – Building

We have in our hands three 15mm houses from Eleven Tree Designs, an UK based company who manufactures 10mm, 15mm and 28mm buildings and other wargaming accesories. Lets build one of them!
These Tudor Houses are perfect for the historical period between the XIV and XVII centuries. Also, they’re perfect for fantasy games (we’re using them for that) or for pirate wargames. Eleven Tree Designs also sells these houses in 28mm, so they’ll be perfect for Mordheim.

The houses comes in a zip plastic bag, inside a bubble envelope. Not a single piece broken or damaged:

Eleven Tree Designs work with a laser cutting machine, cutting MDF (Medium Density Fibreboard), as many other companies. But, in this case, the details achieved with the laser are superb, as you can see in this tiny pieces:

The instructions are clear and easy to follow, as all of the pieces come with a number written on them.

We glue the two pieces together once they are dry. The roof has all of the tiles carved with a nice depth. This will ensure some great ‘drybrush’ later. 😉

NO NEED to texture anything, and that’s the greatest thing about these houses. Eleven Tree Designs has achieved a high quality carving, quite different from their competition.

So, we prepare some resin parts (
