Dry fit of the HBS/miniatures.com 2015 contest base kit

Yay! Denise’s City Cottage Kit, the starting point for the HBS/miniatures.com 2015 building contest has arrived. Once again there’s an interesting roof line, and some solid other architectural details that invite interpretation. Here it is in dry-fit. No idea what it might become, but I’ve opened a fresh page in my notebook, and later will pour a glass of wine to help me listen and think.

I’ve 11 months to do so, as the submission deadline is 16 December, 2015. And because we can now submit our entries online, I expect I’ll be working up to the very last day, as my projects tend to expand to the maximum time allotted them.

    I’m intruiged to see what people come up with. When I first saw it I immediately thought of the ultra modern cabins used as holiday homes. Are you allowed to add more rooms to it? I would have a field day with this design. Good luck with the contest =0)

    Thanks! That’s one of the things I like the most about the contest: the *only* rule is to start with the base kit! I have a self-imposed directive to limit a build’s foundation size to a 20 x 27-inch (51 x 67 cm) hollow core drawing board, but it can go up. And I do like the idea of all my builds somehow tying in together, story-wise…
    I’d love to see what you’d make of this kit.
