After divesting the tax collectors of thier booty, Robbie and his merry compatriots pay a visit to the the eccentric bowyer and fletcher of Belgrave, Eric Lomax. Eric tells Robbie that for a hefty fee he will sell him a new prototype bow he has been developing, one which will shoot faster and more accurately than the traditional yew longbows, and be faster to load than crossbows. Robbie shells out in an instant, thinking gleefully about the upcoming archery tournament in the nearby hamlet of Sherwood - surely with this awesome new bow he can claim first prize and recoup the outlay?
The interior shows Robbie admiring his new compound bow with sight and stabilizer setup. Eric is also busy admiring his new-found wealth!
But wait! Oh noes! Looks like a Crownie patrol have recognised Belgrave's most wanted. Will Robbie get away? I also fear for Eric - hopefully he won't be subjected to extrordinary rendition to an troll/orc labour camp or anything. :P
Quoting Romany Woodhouse
Brilliant! So much beautiful brown! No photos of the outside?
Thanks! Unfortunately i didn't take so many pics of this one - it was for a ccc comp and i wanted to focus on the action inside the house. The back side seemed immaterial - and actually it is quite bare there as at the time i didn't have many pieces left to finish it off. ;)
Quoting White Knight
Fabulous detail, looks great !>.....Well done
Thankyou, glad you like it! :)
Quoting justin dale
i like the little brown part with the balcony underneath
Do you mean the archery viewing platform at the back? Thanks, i like that too, although it's not very accessible for larger fingers to get figs in and out. These days i'm much more on the ball with modular construction! ;)

Itīs hard for me to see the hanging lanterns, because itīs a bit dark. But I like what I can see and the prototype bow is awsome.
Argh, sorry it's taken so long to reply to yr comment. :P Thanks for yr feedback, i agree the interior is hard to see properly. I'd like to try making a hinged building (like MMV) next, or maybe something with removable walls or levels. Glad you like the compound bow btw! I'd been thinking about how to make one of those for ages. (I'm an archer myself)
