Reacting to contructive and timely feedback the Purgatory Town Council have authorised the building of an Hotel with liquor licence…







Second building for Purgatory – this time The Hotel being defended by 28mm Boot Hill Miniatures New Orleans Greys. Inevitably it will be known as "The House of the Rising Sun"…Next up will be a couple of run down shacks and storerooms.

More photos on my FB page –

Thanks for looking.

Very nice, and don't forget a church

Very nice. And very classic look. Wargames Illustrated had 20 years ago a series how to build wild west buildings. Your house looks the same.

Purgatory was a Maverick episode, I think. Probably a number of other westerns of the era, also. Hotel looks good. How is the rotgut?

Buildings look good. Purgatory is a popular name for western towns, I had one myself a few years ago.

"A hotel with a liquor license is just asking for trouble! And trouble isn't what this town of Purgatory needs! It needs good, decent, honest, church going folks!"

Purgatory looks like a respectable town, peaceful folks, and nice too…until the sun goes down!
Looking forward to seeing the entire town. Very nice work.

That captures the old west town look perfectly!
