6mm ACW Building

I liked the look of Glenn's Waterloo buildings so much that I purchased a sizable haul of Leven Miniatures buildings for myself, both from their Napoleonic and Civil War lines.

I started with a Civil War building, the Codori house and barn (or carriage house).  Pickett's Charge passed right through this property, or at least Pettigrew's troops did.

The house had a white picket fence enclosing a small yard.  I cut some plasticard to a height of 3mm, then painted three tones up to a white.  I think it makes a convincing picket fence.

I'm still refining my approach for buildings this small, but I am reasonably happy with how this one turned out.  Before I tackle Hougoumont, I'll perfect my technique on a number of these smaller sets.


  1. Love the fence. Leven buildings are very good - I must have at least 20 of them!

    1. I have you beat, but I have to get them all painted! They do look very nice indeed.

    1. Thanks, Jon! I'll keep at the ACW buildings for a bit.

  3. That turned out really well, nicely done.
