Flames of War: Monte Cassino Terrain Section II
The top space (where the chapel / monastery is) will be left very plain to allow me to put in different terrain sections - like a village, fort or POW camp. The top of the right side will probably end up being either a forest of some type of grove. The next phase will be dry-brushing the rock facings to make them "pop" a bit and then applying ground foam. I'm also planning to write up some house rules to allow for rock climbing and other little surprises.
Game Craft Miniatures. It's a top notch kit and a real joy to build. The company's website extols the virtues of cad design leading to perfectly fitting parts and it's no exaggeration. Most resin kits require a good amount of engineering to get everything to go together - not this kit. Outside of trimming some flash, it went together without any fuss. The roof is removable and a small FOW stand can fit in the bell tower. The casting was almost flawless. You can see three green dots on the rough section where I reinforced the one of the roof section casts with green stuff as there was just a very thin layer of the detail side.
All-in-all I highly recommend this kit.
Here's a picture of the kit during the building phase:
