|German Farmhouse by Ian Weekley.
I found one more Ian Weekley model in my collection, stashed away on a top shelf. It is a North German farmhouse and out buildings. It is loosely inspired by La Haye Sainte at Waterloo.
The farmhouse makes a nice addition to the game table layout, with it parked in one of the corners of the table. I like to have my built up areas in the corners of the table so that they don't interfere with the space needed for troop movement. Of course, some scenarios will need to have built up areas and other buildings in a more central part of the table, but I prefer the open spaces provided by building models in the corners.

Here are some more views, closer, of the farmhouse. I have populated it with some of the civilians in my collection.
This is the last of my Ian Weekley models. All of them were commissioned in the late 1980s and early 1990s. I like how they look when all of them are placed on the table top.
