Technology comes to St. Maurice - His Majesty has decided, in the face of a general feeling of negativity throughout the country as well as threats of excommunication by the local church, to charge confidently into the 14th (!) century, and has ordered to construction of a wind powered grainateria to be located on the outskirts of the small city of Consomme. Got the bug to do this a couple of weeks ago when I saw the kit available on the Hirst Arts web site. I just didn't want a mill made with that much stone, so came up with this. Now I'm looking forward to seeing it in a game.

No small thing this. The base is 13" at it's
widest, and it stands 16.5" from the bottom
of the base to the tip of the sail frame.

Excellent work! I've wanted to make a small windmill for my tabletop battles some day (a Quixotic quest?).

Nothing like a little Amish Hi-Tech to liven up a battlefield, but I'd keep an eye on those Mennonites!

A nice model. Yes, the Hirst Arts mill is really good but awfully heavy for a wargames table.

Give it wheels, arm it with cannon, and you'll have a spectacular wind-propelled tank: Munchausen meets Da Vinci...
