Chicken Coop and Haystack

Painted these for my good friend, Colin at Charlie Foxtrot Models.  The first item is actually a raised grain store but adding some planks (coffee stirrers) to the front makes it an ideal cosy home for some chickens.  Colin keeps chickens and I've done my best to paint the models to look like his own livestock, including Colin's big black cock 😳 ... which he calls “Bert” 🀣



Both items are from Hovels and were beautifully cast plus great fun to paint.  The thatch and walls were painted in the same manner as this thatched hut.  The dog and chickens are from Redoubt.

This is a covered haystack which I reckon is probably suitable for a wide range of historical eras and regions.

The other 'side' ... which (funnily enough) looks very similar

Thanks for looking :o)
