Tabletop Buildings and Scenery Manufacturers

This is a list of manufacturers and shops of 25mm-28mm buildings and scenery pieces for a variety of settings, such as medieval villages, old west towns, etc. Since I am referring to various of these websites quite frequently I found it easier for myself to collect them in one handy post. Maybe it is useful to you, too. I will update it as I stumble across new stores and manufacturers. Despite my attempts to collec the most useful producers this list will obviously never be exhaustive. If you want to add something to the list, just let me know!


Medieval Fantasy

Antenociti's Workshop - Absolutely great shop with lots of windows and other parts
CT-Scenery - Some great buildings (also check out the tables under "tabletops")
