The Meramees Hostel is a 28mm scale North African terrain piece. This run down three story “hotel” should fit into any neighborhood either as the slightly run down building at the corner in the more affluent block or the surprisingly intact hostel in your tables slums. It is based on first hand reference pictures taken in Egypt and artwork through out history. This dwelling has been designed to try to bring as much accuracy as possible to your historical game table. With three floors, an open roof and a “parapet” providing extra cover target of many sorties involving your 28mm toy soldiers if for no other reason than the height advantage it provide. The bedbugs that infested the 1 star hostel this was named after don’t come with this kit thankfully, but if you look hard enough you can find your own to really sell the authentic feel.
The laser etched detail is such that light gradients of thinned paint over primed surfaces are almost all that is needed to bring this terrain kit to life. Designed to be painted before assembly it will be a snap to tape off different sections, airbrush or spray can paint and assemble to end up with a above average looking building. That said going the extra mile on the detail work along the mosaic along the top will make it stand out!
The main building itself measures about x.xin x x.xin and stands x.xin tall with the roof access building.
All international orders will be emailed a quote for exact shipping cost that will be added to our standard shipping charge as this a large heavy kit.
This kit is made in the USA by Ironheart Artisans from laser cut 2.5mm MDF and is a multi-part kit that will require assembly. The parts come completely cut and are NOT attached to a sheet that need to be punched out.
The painted example pictured is a prototype with certain differences from the model being sold. The unpainted kit shown is exactly what is included and how it is cut, we have made many improvements since the prototype.
