Dreamblade Repainted

Hundvig Fezian is not a real big fan of pre-painted minis, and he positively despises randomly-packed "collectable" ones - so why is he writing this article?

Did I mention that my wife loves the European House series of pre-painted buildings from Gale Force Nine? She hijacks them for her Christmas decorating. This is one hobby expense she approves of! grin

Arnhem House catalog pic

This is the pic from the manufacturer's online shop. The product comes in a sturdy box, with another plain sturdy box nestled inside.

Arnhem House box back

The box is very informative, and describes exactly what you're getting. The only thing lacking are pictures of the building interior, or mention of what can fit inside.

Arnhem House 1st story

Here is the lower level. The lower levels are wrapped together in bubblewrap, and the roof piece is wrapped separately.

Arnhem House 1st story interior

The interior floors are painted, but the interior walls/windows/doors are just black. I suppose if you were ambitious, you could paint them yourself, or even try drilling out the windows (good luck!).

Arnhem House 1st and 2nd stories

Here is the second story piece in place. It fits snugly, no fit problems. The box doesn't say what this product is made from. I imagine it's resin, but it has an almost ceramic sound to it. And I haven't managed to break any of them yet…

Arnhem House 1st and 2nd stories

The interior is an odd size – 54mm x 68mm – but you can fit two Flames of War medium bases in there. And there were a few white specks that needed to be gently persuaded to remove themselves.

And here it is, with the roof piece in place. Green roof tiles and a central chimney – similar but not identical to the roof piece on Falaise House, except for the chimney placement and color scheme.

The lower stories are similar to Munich House, except for the shutters on the windows. The smooth walls and white trim make these two houses good candidates for repaints, if you feel the need for more variety.

So that's another useful, sturdy WWII building in my collection (well, for eleven months out of the year!).
