Opening the package

Assembling: Village 28mm set for Village 28mm from Terrains4Games - Unboxing & finished model

The set includes 2 wide MDF sheets that create the main building and the removable roof with a chimney, and 1 thin MDF sheet that adds the timber frame detail to the building.

There were no instructions included in this set. However, the assembly is pretty straightforward.

Assembly

 

Assembling: House 28mm for Village 28mm from Terrains4Games - Dry fitting

Removing the pieces from the MDF sheets is easy. The edges were cut through, and while assembling the whole Village set, there was only a couple of time I had to use a knife to complete a cut that did not go through the MDF sheet.

If you wish to spray paint your building on the sheets, there are only a couple of parts you'd need to remove or cover, because similar parts are gathered on their own sheets. As the edges of the main building will be covered by the timber frames, you don't need to bother with painting them. However, the sides of the timber frames will need to be painted, so if you'd like to spray paint them on the sheets, choose dark brown. But you can remove the timber frame pieces, and spray paint them separated, just make sure to give them a shot of spray from all sides, to cover all of the delicate details.

During assembly or painting, take care that it's the front side of the sheet (with the laser etched parts) that's going to be the outside of the building. When you glue the timber frames on the main building, it will cover the connectors. The only visible connectors will be on the roof, but the company promised they will add a covering sheet to put over the roof in the next version of the set.

Painting

The MDF sheets are a base colour of medium brown, that becomes dark brown at the parts where the laser cut it. if you'd like to paint it to any lighter colour, I recommend you to use a white primer. A layer of primer might be useful anyway, as the MDF eats up the paint due to its porous nature.

The inside walls: I recommend to paint these before assembly. You'll have easier access to the walls. As the roofs are removable, these walls will be visible, so it's worth to take some time to paint them properly.

The insides of the roof will be probably hidden, but as I like to paint every area, I've painted it before assembly. As it won't be visible, and it's not a hard to reach area, you might also paint it after assembly.

The outside walls: It's probably easier to glue the building together, apply some filler to fill the gaps, and then paint the outside walls.

The doors: The easiest way to paint it is to remove it from the door frame, and paint it separately. Even if you glue it in a closed position, you won't need to bother with tracing the edges of the door with your paintbrush.

The roof: The roof has laser etched detail, that is deep enough to create shadows with a wash, but not deep enough to be able to highlight the edges with drybrushing. You either paint it with a dark colour, and then use a lighter colour for drybrushing the surface area, or you can use a lighter colour, then add a dark wash to get into the laser etched recesses.

The chimney: It's the most visibly lasercut part due to the three layers that build it. I recommend that you cover the sides with primer, and fill the gaps, then you could create your own stone pattern on the sides if you wish.

Timber frames: I recommend you to paint the timber frames before you attach it to the building. If you can, paint it with spray paint (either a spray can or an airbrush), otherwise it will be very tiresome to paint the whole thing. There are many tiny opening you need to paint, and it takes a lot of time, and you'll have to pay close attention, or else it's easy to miss some parts.

If you glue the timber frames before you start to paint the building, it will be a lot harder to separate the timber frames from the building perfectly. However, if you do so, it can really speed up the painting, if you just add some paint with drybrushing to make the frames stand out a little bit.

Whichever method you choose to paint it, make sure to go over the corners with a brush before the paint dries. Due to the lots of corners, paint can pool into them, and it could make the look of the frames a little awkward.

The underside: Although it's not likely that the underside will be visible, on an uneven ground, it might show up. That's why I prefer to paint it to a dark colour. If you choose to paint it, it's easier to paint it after you've assembled the building, as the sides of the walls will show up on the bottom.

Putting miniatures inside

As the roof is removable, you can put miniatures inside. The photo shows miniatures on 20x20mm bases.

From this, I'd estimate you could fit 28 (4x7) miniatures of this size, and probably 12-15 miniatures on 25 or 30mm bases.
