A recent piece for my medieval armies a small wayside chapel typical of many that would have been seen in pre-reformation Europe.
Its a Faller HO scale railway kit with door added and height of the walls raised to be used with 28mm figures.

Very nice conversion work. Also very nice job seeing the potential of the piece that wasn't the "right scale".

Agreed. Very nice.

A joy.

(Is the figure a Perry? It's tops, regardless)

Like it. As you say, a perfect wayside chapel.

Great idea.

The raising of a (20mm-25mm) building and modifying the doors and perhaps windows to make it seem convincing for 28mm has long been a thought of mine. Did you sculpt the stonework or is it something commercially available?

Thanks for posting this…

Thanks for the comments.
Yes, its a Perry plastic figure and the stonework was cut from some sheets I had in the bits box, which I think were an old model railway kit of some nature – they seems a good scale for the building.
Cheers, Simon.
