The "insert your name here" Inn

Hi, folks. This is a little Inn my son Mark built a while back using a "Buildings of Malifaux" set made by WorldWorks Games for Wyrd Miniatures. This was made from 1 Building set and 1 set of clips.  Others have reviewed these sets in the past so I won't spend a lot of time talking about it. I don't like it much. It's wonky when you try to build upwards and the plastic clips get in the way of furniture placement. Graphics are nice, though. This is mainly about some of the furnishings, most of which are Hirst Arts.

Three story Inn. As you can see, it doesn't stack too well, but the graphics are good.
 A different angle. 28mm D&D minis for scale.
Another angle. I like the balcony these sets allow.
A shot of the top floor with the roof removed. The rug has been featured in previous posts. The bookcase is an old scratchbuild. Globe from Dollhouse set, the bed is another old scratchbuild. I imagine this as a suite of rooms, perhaps for nobles or mages.
 A shot of the second floor. Most of the furnishings are Hirst Arts, though the bed on the right is a scratchbuild with a quilt printed from an online site.
Another angle shot of the second floor. Mainly HA furniture.
Here's a shot of the ground floor bar and patio. Most of the furniture is HA. The narrow table in the upper right is another old scratchbuild.
Another shot of the ground floor. Furniture HA. I used the rug to help hide the clips on the floor.

I'm thinking about making an Inn from foamcore and adding HA pieces for floors and wood planks for the half-timbered look. Might make it a modular collection of rooms like Bruce's latest tutorial on making his Inn, in order to cut down storage space.

Thanks for looking.

Great looking building despite the clips which I think I'd dispense with.
All the HA stuff and your scratchbuilt furnishings really give the place it's oomph.

Looking really good, I do like the terraclips stuff from Wyrd, but I really don't like the fact that the clips are very prominant on them. I think I'd end up just glueing them, which kinda defeats the point.

Still very nice, and hope you have many adventures in it.

I've got to say that the graphics do look stunning, but I can see what you mean about the plastic clips though.

This is very nice, Joe. It is appealing to eye (detailed) and should be a blast gaming in and through. Have fun!

It looks good mate, I wish there was more terrain like the old Necromunda stuff it was quite superior in some ways.

I agree, if it wasn't for the clips then the effect would great.
