My first house was a Greenleaf Canterbury. I still have not finished it, but it is almost completely on its way to being a Newfoundland Fishermans Home. I was also given a large victorian with a Mansard roof from my local library, which I will be working on for quite some time!
I am most interested in period furniture, and I like working with wood.
If you are not into mini's you need to understand one componant of the hobby. Your options are limitless when it comes to mediums, you can do clay, sewing, woodwork, painting, designing, etc.
Because I am often and easily bored with the same old thing, this allows me to skip around yet still work towards completion of a project. I have not found anything else quite as satisfying!
