As some of you might know, I am living to the far west of Germany in the area that was on the western edge of the Ruhrkessel when the western Allies entered Germany in 1945. As such, I have always been interested in playing games in that region. While much has changed in the last 73 years, there is one architectural aspect that has been there back then and can still be found today. Workers housing for those working in the coal mines or steel mills.
These usually are small row houses made from bricks with small gardens or backyards. I found some appropriate models with Timeline Models. These are actually meant for a Very British Civil War settings, but it seems workers housing in all parts of Europe were not that different. The only let down is, that htese are longer available. With all their bricks, they were too complicated and therefore too expensive to cut, so they have phased these out in favour of a plain version. Which I think is a shame. So I am still hoping that they will one day make them available again to those willing to pay a premium. Especially since I have three left hand versions and only one right hand version.
