Having only utilized four of the five female field hands in my small cotton field vignette I decided to base the remaining figure on its own circular base. While waiting for the glue to dry I set about making a small barn for my modest plantation to suggest a housing for the cotton gin.
It's based on the 15mm 'small barn' from Warbases. (If you saw Wargames Illustrated Bitesize#3 during our Spring lockdown you will have seen my first similar effort.) The wooden shingle strips covering the roof come from Oshiro Models while the planking comes from cutting up thin cream coloured card. The doors and windows are from Warbases as is the base.
When it's all assembled it had two coats of Crafter's Acrylic Burnt Umber and a third coat of Foundry Bay Brown Shade. The whole is roughly dry brushed with Foundry Arctic White Shade. I used Dried Earth Basetex for the groundwork with added static grass, Tufts and the like. The barrel is a wooden piece from a craft store in the USA I picked up on a trip one time. The chimney is an offcut of plastic pipping. It's deliberately off true as to suggest a rather run down sort of place.
