is a ‘28Standard’ 4Ground kit, as you would expect it has loads of detail and pre-painted parts. The roof is removable allowing maximum in-game access the cookhouse. The roof is held in place with locator lugs in each corner.
This Cookhouse will look great on any Napoleonic or Post Napoleonic battlefield, cookhouses like this became common from the 1800’s onwards, with many examples from as far away as Russia to Northern Spain and Northern Italy to Britain and Scandinavia still standing today.
As a part of 4Ground’s immensely popular ‘World at War’ range for WWI and WWII it makes a great defensible objective in any European action. Add this building alongside the Stone hotel, with it’s Stone Coaching Stable and the Grand Stone Hotel and the effect is an even more desirable battlefield worth fighting for!
The Cookhouse was often added to hotels, farms and manor houses as they increased in size and importance so that a staff of workers could make meals for the residents. Cookhouses were built when a larger on site kitchen was needed than was currently available.
The external walls have had a rendered effect that would have protected it from the weather as it would have been built of poorer quality stone, some of the render is able to be broken off with stone effect inserts to show the stone beneath. Internally the building has a cooking range, bread oven, Belfast sink, cupboards and draws.
