It's been nearly a year since I first signed up for the Albion builds (though I initially signed up to build the Fletcher), and I've finally finished something. Now that I've finished my trilogy of Heroica quests, I've got the bricks available to build some Historica buildings. (this wall technique uses up a lot of tiles quickly, and I use the same technique for Heroica sets)
The building should extend a little more backwards; I wanted to do a cutaway and show the interior, but I also didn't want to crowd the space, so I left out a couple things like a second bed and a fireplace so that I could concentrate on the furnishings related to this building's purpose as a bowyer's house and shop.
Built on the corner of the road leading to the second gatehouse of Albion's inner sanctum, the Albion Bowyer is the capital city's only source of bows crafted by the Forestmen native to the Mystic Isles.
On the stone-deprived Isle of Bricdocton, a building with stonework like this would be a luxury for the nobility. In Avalonia's capital, its cost was only a small portion of the profits of these two Forestman bowyers, whose high-quality bows are greatly in demand for both military and sport and hunting purposes.
The Forestmen can often be seen outside, testing their bows and demonstrating them to pedestrians and potential buyers.
These bows are crafted with traditional Forestman techniques, producing weapons rivaling those of the elves.
The bows are made with hand-selected wood imported from the Mystic Isles.
They're typically made only after they have been ordered by a customer, every bow being unique, but a few bows are kept for potential buyers to test and to sell those who demand instant gratification.
Finished September of 2012; C&C welcome. Thanks for looking.
