Soon at Surus Ceations, you will find this building a little gothic or a bit steampunk in 28mm, the Wohnblock.

So is a lot of Steampunk. It's meant to be--its roots are in Dickens, after all. On that basis, I like it.

Ugly. Perfect for that early industrial era feeling.

looks to be full of clockwork orphans

That would do nicely in my hive city.

Too bad there's no mention of it at the link…

Ugly? No way, I think it's perfect. This kind of steampunk architecture is supposed to be coldly industrial, functional without any external beauty.

This building would also work in some Empire settings for Warhammer, it does have a few modern-looking details but they blend in enough I think that they could work on a fantasy tabletop.

Looks fantastic!

It looks like the perfect laboratory for the e-e-e-vil Dr. Alistair Munro [major plot point in several of my Pulp Alley convention games] to continue his sinister research. It has a deliciously devious and delightfully dastardly look about it.

Does anyone know if you can use the interior?

I think it would go fine with my collection of Crescent Root buildings…….

I get it but it seems more like a slap dash collection of windows and doors rather than Victorian architecture.

Agreed, but it has the look of a place abandoned, and rehab'd in a casual manner. I like it.

oabee51, if you check some of the other offerings, they certainly have usable interiors.

Happy you like it boys!. (smile)

Too much cr@p packed on "because Steampunk". Saying "functional and ugly with no external beauty" does work in certain settings, but it would help if all the ugly junk stuck onto the building is actually functional.

The paintjob is outright crude and doesn't help.

But looking past that, I'm not impressed by the sculpt quality.

It's also a bit small for a supposedly 28mm building. Unless it's meant to be a backyard lab or something, I guess.
