Canal

Canal Warehouse

The canal board has been getting most of my attention recently. It was the small cargo barge that actually brought me back to Stadtheim from my 40k projects.

The warehouse is now up to roof level, the main doorway at the top will have a crane jib above to lower goods to passing vessels. The back door opens on street level. There’s a wooden stairway to get to the goods doorway. Then a small door opens on each side at the lower street level.

When I came back to this I noticed the tower was well out of shape. Somehow it’d grown about 1/4 inch at the back. I decided to stick with this, hopefully with a slightly skewed roof it’ll look ramshackle rather than badly built! We shall see.

The details for this board are shown below:

The first is the barge, with a couple of Antenociti’s crates and currently a single Renedra barrel. I’m going to do a couple of large crate piles covered with tarps (saves money :D).

Second photo shows the in progress crane which will be loading goods to the barge. Human hamster power ftw.

Thrd is a very quick cart I built today. Not bad for half an hour’s work. It’s a bit rough but I like it that way.

I’m hoping this will be the first complete board, though I may not do the water until all the canal boards are sorted. That way I can make sure they’re all the same.
