Is there a UK stockist, please?

25mm bulidings so we can expect new pirites/carribian miniatures soon?

Still hoping for the re-release of the legation buildings for the Boxer Rebellion.

Thanks to Tom Milmore for sculpting these beauties. His 15mm buildings for Old Glory are also top notch.

I'd like to see how these compare with the Brigade Games buildings. Anyone know how well these take paint?

I"m thinking that these might also work well for Late Roman period harbor/seaside village buildings.

I'd contact Old Glory about the paint issue if I were you. Having said that, I have a number of Hudson& Allen high-density foam buildings, and they took spray primer and acrylic paints just fine. No damage,melting, etc.

FWIW, I use inexpensive automotive primer from WalMart 9about$1/can) for all my priming, whether plastic, foam, or metal.

@TheKing30 -- depends on what material these new ones are. The originals were a porous expanded foam so soaked up a lot of paint.

The originals were also mostly solid…and I had to carve foam out in order to make actual rooms for figs. Does anyone know if the new ones are hollow?

They look like the old Spanish missions in California. I worked in the San Francisco mission's gift shop as a teenager, so these images made me nostalgic.

TheKing30,

These should take paint very well, even spray paint without issues. They are made of the same high density foam the Epic Buildings, the Dracula's Castle and some of the 25mm Pirate ships.

Lookin' to use with Blood & Plunder 28mm minis!
Hey, what would be the inch dimensions of one of the examples, say for the OGP-45 Warehouse, and maybe the height of one of the rectangular door entrances that are on a number of the models (this would help us prospective "28mm" buyers).

I haven't seen a new release in 25/28mm from OG in years unless I missed something. Nice to see these buildings again though. Yes the legations would be great.

Schogun OGP-47 Port Royal Residence/Business obviously has lift off roof sections. OGP-46 Customs House has windows completely through and, probably, a lift off roof

These would be nice for games of Slaughterloo set in the environs of Cataluchia! Or for you Napoleonic players the Peninsula War. grin
