I am building a little colonial outpost for Deutsch-Ostafrika and the first building off the bench is is the "Schütz und Egbers" trading post. It's been named for myself and my host family from when I was an exchange student in Germany. Not being a native German speaker I've had to rely on my dictionary to translate my wares; it's supposed to be provisions, supplies and weapons, so here's hoping it's correct.
The shop is Ainsty's 3003 Corrugated Iron Shack with a scratch built sign added. For the sign I used a font called
The building was well cast and comes with a detailed interior and front doors that can either be positioned closed, or split in two and left open. I've opted for open.
As an empty shop would be boring, I bought some trade goods from Ainsty as well: 3303, 3309, and 3311. Again, these were very well cast. Several of the smaller items have been glued together for ease of transporting. I did not attach them to the base so that they could be moved around and used as objectives or barricades in my games.
Overall I am very happy with this start. In addition to my completed native huts, I have three additional colonial buildings in the works. They will be shown here as I complete them.
