I'd imagined that this model house was that of a well-to-do merchant that has spend his cash on a home improvement and built a decent brick chimney piece. This has to taken at a stretch because bricks would have been very expensive at the time but not unheard of. Castles at Tattershall, Lincolnshire and Kirby Muxloe, Leicestershire are both excellent examples of brick built structures constructed during the period now known as the Wars of the Roses. In fact Kirby Muxloe castle was never completed because the owner/builder William Hastings, Baron Hastings, was executed by Richard III in 1483. The castle was simply abandoned almost immediately afterwards. Obviously the model can be used to decorate any game table after this period.
I decided to paint the model in subdued colours for a change. If, and when, I'm in the house building mood I've already designed and drawn details for a timber framed house based on a building in Bridgnorth. I still haven't seen anything I could use to make a convincing thatched roof so I will probably depict a slate roof again.
