Halgar's Blacksmith (Fabled Realms)

Almost a year since the last Fabled Realms buildings from 4Ground that I constructed comes this  - Halgar's Blacksmith. As soon as I saw the kit I wanted it to add some more variation to the small collection I have. I hope 4Ground produce more non-domiciliary type structures in a similar size - a warehouse would be interesting, and I sure there are plenty of other ideas.

The minis used for size reference are Freebooter's FateHalgar's Blacksmith has already had game-time during my second Freebooter's Fate game very recently.

The build time was around six and half to seven hours, split over a few sessions on a couple of days. I was a bit rusty so had one cock-up which I think I have been able to cover over, which was aligning the outer frame of the upper story - but I had a real problem getting them to interlock and stick in place at the same time and think the sheets were very slightly bowed.

As usual I moved around a bit in the running order of the build to allow sub-assemblies to allow the glue to start to set. This time I used my paint roller technique on the roof before assembly, to change to a more pleasing (to me) colour.

An optional addition which is available is posters included on the instruction sheet, but I didn't like the look of them on the 4Ground site so left them off.

This is a kit I heartily recommend and one I would certainly suggest for anyone who has other Fabled Realms kits and wants to add more.

  1. That's a really nice kit. I'd been really tempted but can't really justify getting a fantasy town though.

    1. One or two buildings could look splendid for kings of War though. :)

  3. I've been tempted by their buildings for quite some time, both for Bushido and Freebooter's Fate.
    I hope to get some more terrain (and finish what I already have) next year.
    I guess I put this on my 'to but list'.
