I do like the two colonial style ones!

I've already got a pile of resin desert buildings but those would fit alongside nicely for use in later periods

Are there plans to further rescale to 6mm?

They look a bit fab.
I recall a discussion with Leon yonks ago about using 2mm mdf for 10mm buildings and whether it would work or not, scaling down from other scales.
Obviously does work, and some money accidentally fell off my card into Leon's wallet....

It's taken a few tests but we're getting there with it!  It's the thickness of the material that can cause some problems with the aesthetic of the building, so we're trying to hide the joints as brickwork, or blend them into the roof tiles, that kind of thing.  It doesn't always work but I'm pretty happy with them so far.

No plans at the moment, for the same reasons as above, it's becomes more difficult to make the building 'work' visually as we get down in scales.  Blocky buildings like these might not be too bad but things with pitched roofs or raised door/window detailing start to suffer from the material thickness getting in the way.

Interesting . . .

How tall are the single-storey buildings (bottom two, 1st picture)? And the height of the doorways, please?

Don't know about doors but heights are on the website product listing, as are L*W dimensions :)
