This is one of several terrain pieces my husband gave me for my birthday earlier this month.

 

Technically this thing is called a "Small Hovel", but it seems more hut-like to me.  It has a removable roof that I'm not planning to glue on, something which might be a bed inside, and a surprisingly good-looking door.

 

It says it's resin, but whatever this is it's very different from the other resin terrain I have, which feels plasticky and resists paint.  This feels more like terra cotta and it absorbed paint and water the first few layers.

 

I have primed it thinly with white and washed over that with Burnt Umber to bring out the details.

 

I am probably not going to paint it in any orthodox fashion.

You could paint it as if every stone the hovel-holder used was brought to him from a far off land by visitors. It is a hermit's hovel but he will only impart his wisdom to those who bring him a stone from afar...

 

You could have similar fun with the planks in the door. Salvaged barnwood from twelve different barns.

Cool building!

 

What company makes it? It seems like it would work well with my upcoming campaign.

I forgot to include the packaging picture.  It's from Architects of War.
