Won’t you take me to SHANTY TOWN!

Miniature Building Authority announces two more shanties in our Direct line of Modern and post modern buildings.  This now gives us four shanties in the line.  These are fabulous for modern day Africa, Middle East, Asia, South and Central America.  Also they will work great for post apocalyptic settings and near future settings.  They are all resin cast for strength and durability with removable roofs.  Jim our designer has put a lot of cool little details into each one of these to make them pop on the table for your gaming.


These shanties are all made in America, and we now offer you painted versions of them as well.  These are custom painted by the Master Terrain Painter Denise Haynes.  They are all fully detailed and each one is different than the others.  Here are some pictures of the custom painted ones from Denise.

The painted shanties are painted in batches and are limited in availability. If we do not have them in stock, we will contact you and let you know the timeline as to when we will have them back in stock.

PS:  You’re welcome for now having the song FUNKYTOWN stuck in your head.
