28mm Wild West "Grand Hotel" in the town of Angry!

Back to flaming work, I was ill all my annual leave and fecking Christmas, it's Ray's fecking fault coughing and sneezing all over the car and gatehouse before Christmas the bleeding typhoid Mary!, got nothing done, sneezing like an allergic cat owner, cost too fecking much for too fecking little, more phlegm than a stutterers convention, explosive coughing fits and more snot than 12 kindergartens!!!!!!!

Here endeth the rant........

A lovely painted building among with others I acquired before Christmas by swapping something the previous owner wanted and behold one of the first buildings for my town of "Angry" down south (bleeding hot though), don't know the company though?

Not a large hotel but I've bought some poker tables and a piano with some patrons..........

  4. That's the building shape that I want for my town but no one makes a laser cut version like that. What company makes that one?

  10. Very nice piece you acquired Fran! I believe the hotel is from Hovels. I like Hovels a lot as they have a certain quaintness and style that I find very appealing.

  13. You'll have to get some strumpets to go with that. Foundry Victoriana has some rather risque ones. They'd look marvelous strutting on the balcony of your hotel.

    Welcome back Mr. Grouchy Pants!

  17. So you are saying you were sick for your break? I kid, I kid!! Sorry you didn't feel good...that sucks. Be sure to return the favor!

    I am digging that hotel! Very nice!! Missed you!

  18. It's a nice start, but I think you need to focus on commodities before focusing on tourism. Give them a reason to stay. Maybe Angry can be the place where people can seek refuge from the annoyingly sick.

  19. Nice building Fran its the Hovels 25mm scale Grand hotel http://www.hovelsltd.co.uk/wildwest.html .Sorry to hear you have been unwell, you can always hope its mutated and pass it back to Ray again ;)

  26. Theta blooming amazing there mate and does this mean that you are getting into Wild West games? I am sorry to hear you have been feeling shite but what can you expect from Ray, I say attack Rayonia as a way of light relief, lol

    ReplyDelete
  27. That looks really good, Fran!
    I enjoy to see some 28mm stuff from you after the long period of 15mm. This hotel proves that you're familiar to the larger scale alike.

    Cheers

  29. Sadly that you have been ill in your leave (I´m sure Ray is the responsible...). The Hotel is a very nice building; I´m expecting to see your Old West games in 28mm!!!

    Cheers!

  33. Nice piece ,looking forward to seeing more

  34. Good building nicely finished. It's going to be an enviable set up when you've finished the town.

    If it's any consolation I had a shitty cold too over Christmas with the added benefit of the Inca quickstep. Not a single proper wargames present either, but at least only one pair of socks . . .

  38. Who wouldn't want to stop for a drink in a town called Angry? And now there's a place to get a drink! Nice. I worry though that someone is going to crash through that skylight when gunfight season starts,
    As for the germs, I agree that you should give them back to Ray, and he can stay sick until Curt's painting challenge is over and give the rest of us a chance. :)
    Cheers,
    Mike

  45. will there be pretty ladies on the top floor of the hotel?

    ReplyDelete
  46. Looks like somewhere I'd hang out. Not that I ever have, but I'd like to.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I can't believe you ended up sick on your time off! That's terrible. Here's wishing you a Happy New Year!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Great model, but I'm dubious about the skylight (must be rich folk in the town of Angry).
    Sod's Law is obviously in action when your sick ion your time off!
    All the best for 2013

  49. That's a very nice building! Could it be suitable for 1/72 scale figures to?
