These come on a small single sheet of plywood with parts that have to be separated using a box cutter, scalpel or +5 elven dagger of model-making. Some of them are painted, some in natural wood. In one corner there will be a code - like "RMA17" (which would be the seventeenth "Renaissance Miniatures Accessory" kit). Look up that number below and it will link to some building instructions - either as a video, a photo series or as a set of printable instruction sheets. Because these are costly to ship individually, we generally sell them in packs.

All of our 28mm scale buildings are made up of some number of 3"x3" room modules. Each module basically contains up to four walls and/or support columns attached to a floor. There are also "roof modules" and internal partition walls. The floors are etched with a 1"x1" grid to allow normal movement rules to be used within the building.
Complicated buildings are made by pushing together as many room modules as you need, dropping interior walls in place to separate the space - then perhaps stacking more floors on top and finally topping it all off with some roof modules.
The walls that make up a room module are typically made from two pieces, an inner and an outer part. "Half-timbered" walls have an outer wood frame and an off-white inner "adobe" wall. Stone walls have an outside grey piece and an inside piece of wood framing to make them be the same thickness as the half-timbered kind:
To make a module, you glue together the outer and inner wall parts back-to-back - then glue the walls into the notches into the floor. At the ends of each wall, you glue a column part - and at corners of the floor where there are no walls, two column parts are glued together to make an L-shaped column. Since the parts are laser-cut for precision and pre-painted, it takes just a couple of minutes to assemble each room module.
So a two-wall module (pictured above) has two walls with a column part at each end and an L-shaped column in the other corner of the floor. You can make a simple building with four of these modules like this:
One, two, three and four-walled modules are used to make buildings with more complex shapes - and there are even modules with no walls at all where a large open space is needed. To make construction easier, some of our larger models come with double-sized floors and walls to make it easier to make buildings with more impressive features that extend beyond a single room module.
Since each corner of every room module has either a column or a wall, they are stable enough to stack vertically as well as join horizontally. When you join two modules side-by-side, there is a gap between the columns into which you can drop a room-divider (typically, a wall).
Roof modules come in single and double width and also double-width/double-length for really large buildings. There are also a variety of triangular parts that fill in gaps where one roof section joins to another.
Each roof module consists of one or two "gable ends" which are made from two pieces (just like the walls on the room modules) and glued onto a floor piece. The other two edges of the roof module are filled with "gutter" strips and the roof itself is made from two sloping pieces that simply glue together along a dovetailed edge.
The triangular "filler" parts manage the transition from one roof to another where they meet at right angles and they are simply made from two triangular roof pieces glued together along their dovetailed edge.
Some modules are primarily for decorative purposes. One example of that is the "bay window" module which is like a 1/3rd width room. Mostly, they are used to create the characteristic overhangs that you see so often in the upper floors of medieval buildings.
For buildings such as the blacksmith's forge, the room and roof modules use just single layers of timber construction that results in an open-plan space or covered porch area.
In other buildings, there are simple floor pieces that fit together to make courtyards and other open air spaces.
Castles and fortifications
These buildings use a similar construction technique, resulting in compatible room and roof modules connected by 1/3rd width curtain walls and battlements.
We also make church models that use a similar set of modules as the castles.

These come in a small box or plastic bag - with all of the parts already cut out. Some of them are painted, some in natural wood. Inside the box or on the cardboard tag on the bag, there will be a code - like "RMA17" (which would be the seventeenth "Renaissance Miniatures Accessory" kit). Look up that number below and it will link to some building instructions - either as a video or as a set of printable instruction sheets.
